Attractions in Chahkooh Canyon

Tall walls guard you against the real world outside and help you realize that you are staying away from what is outside. These walls cause the low light in the canyon as the beautiful sky is somehow covered due to the less than half a meter distance between the two walls.
Shells on the walls indicate that Chahkooh Canyon used to be underwater someday. When walking in this majestic canyon, you cannot resist moving further. You will see a new scene with each step that you take. Do not forget to take your camera with you to take awesome photos as a memory of your exploration.
