Colca Canyon is one of the deepest canyons in the world at 10,725 ft (3,269 m), it is more than twice as deep as the Grand Canyon in the United States. However, the canyon’s walls are not as vertical as the ones of the Grand Canyon. The Cotahuasi Canyon nearby to the northwest is wrongly referred to as being a deeper canyon at 11,488 ft (3,501 m); but it does not truly satisfy specifications to be a canyon.
