Good question. Let’s start with the location of the Copper Canyon and go from there. The Copper Canyon stretches across the Southwestern portion of the state of Chihuahua in Mexico. See the map below for a good look at where the canyon is geographically. Now, the old silver mining town of Batopilas is located at the very bottom of Batopilas Canyon, just 500 meters above sea level. It is subtropical in nature and you’ll find papaya, avocado and banana trees are prolific down there.
