A great advantage is a low rainfall during most of the year, especially in the summer.

A good occasion to do mountain biking, climbing, or camping could be during a visit to the Cascada de Basaseachi National Park, where the second-highest waterfall in the country is located.
Arriving in the north of the state, 50 km from the City of Juárez, an impressive dessert called Dunas de Samalayuca is located. This place is renowned for the mobility of its sand dunes, which can measure from 100 meters to 300 meters (almost like the Eiffel Tower in France!), Forming a unique light show. If someone adventurous wants to know it, we recommend doing it in winter or autumn when the temperatures are less oppressive and always accompanied by a guide.
Another natural beauty that Chihuahua has to offer is the Copper Canyon, located southwest of its capital. They can be reached by taking a train ride, the Chepe, which connects the cities of Chihuahua and Los Mochis, in the state of Sinaloa. Here you can enjoy various adventure activities such as rappelling, fishing, mountain biking, and zip lines. The best place to do it is in the Barrancas del Cobre Adventure Park, equipped to carry out all these activities alone or as a family. In addition to a restaurant with spectacular terraces to enjoy the view (this place has 60 thousand kilometers of mountains), it has the third-longest cable car in the world, 3 km of cable without intermediate towers.

Its location at the top of the Sierra Madre Occidental makes Creel the perfect place to practice outdoor activities and learn about the customs and traditions of the Rrámuris, the original people of the place.
Casas Grandes has one of the archaeological sites considered as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, Paquimé. This space presents an impressive and labyrinthine architecture of its houses as well as the hydraulic system that its inhabitants developed despite living in a desert area. In the gastronomic sector, you cannot fail to try some of its curdled snacks or its stews based on dried meat or barbecue accompanied by the typical drink of the region, sotol.
Last but not least Magic Town is Batopilas, whose name means closed river or boxed river. This place lives up to its name since it really involves an entire odyssey to get there, it includes descending a two-hour path through curves and gorges of pine forests from the top of the mountain range. It really is an unforgettable experience for every adventurous heart.
