By the very nature of Mexico, if you take a train trip with Chepe you will have the opportunity to appreciate incredible panoramic views in various destinations, one of them is the Mirador Cerro del Gallego because of its distance and remoteness from the most tourist sites of Chihuahua, we will have different views such as the viewpoint itself, suspension bridges, viewpoint with glass floor.


Consideration about this activity

This excursion will give us one of the best views of the Copper Canyon. Get ready to take in your memory an experience of a lifetime. Urique is home to the famous Caballo Blanco ultra marathon held every year in early February.

If you are or know a high endurance runner, invite them to measure themselves against the Rarámuri runners in their territory.

If you do the activity, we recommend a short stop at the spring of “La Virgencita” this is one of the points with the best views. Continue to the viewpoint, where an extension suspended in the void was built. Walk across the suspension bridge.

This activity lasts approximately one hour on a bustling path through the forest until you reach the lookout point.
