2nd deepest claim

The second deeper Canyon on Earth with a depth of 3500m !

Although South Americans claim that Colca is the 1st or second deepest canyon on earth, the ones in the Himalayas beat it. There are actually several gorges 4000-5000 meters deep there.

Re: 2nd deepest claim

Yes it is a useless fight between so-called specialist, trying to tell the difference between a canyon, a gorge, a valley...
Let's say Colca Canyon is at least the second in South America ;o)
