Explore the Batopilas Canyon from Samachique to Batopilas, passing through undisturbed parts of the Copper Canyon with the chance to see great wildlife, changing flora as we hike from the sierra to the barrancas, scenery and amazing views, ancient burial sites and camping at Tarahumara ranches where the few people who live here have a basic and primitive lifestyle without any modern technology. This is truly a once in a lifetime experience.
This is a nine day trip from El Paso - Creel - Samachique - Batopilas - Creel - El Paso. You must be in good health and reasonably fit for this trip and be prepared for a full day of hiking every day. Also you must be comfortable about camping with no bathroom facilities although in some parts a bath in the river is available!

We drive from Creel to the village of Samachique where we will leave the vehicle behind and meet up with the Tarahumara guides and the burros.
