Inspirock Rating:
3.7/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web
Trek to what is rumored to be the world’s deepest canyon at Sangalle. You'll descend to depths of around 1200 m (3937 ft) in order to reach the canyon, so the challenge is no walk in the park; come equipped with plenty of water and, most importantly, sturdy shoes. Once you've reached your destination, however, the rewards make your efforts worthwhile. Admire the tall, verdant trees and flowers surrounding the azure natural pool at the bottom.

  • After the wonderful trip to Sangalle, this is really pure and just a place to stay overnight. And there it is fine for. Shacks are no more than that: shacks with a bed and a candle. Fine on location. There is no electricity, so it's dark early. The advantage: the incredibly beautiful starry sky is clear to see. In the ' canteen ' was 1 light so we have with other guests a cosy evening spent with games. As for food, there is no choice: you can in this canteen food and that's OK, but typically made for tourists. The staff is not particularly hospitable unfortunately. It is wonderful to be able to swim upon arrival here. Then in a cold, smoking open shower to rinse off. We went to sleep early the next morning very on time anyway back to Cabanaconde. Fine, but no more than that.

  • It looked good from the mountains when hiking around but the 3 hostels are really bad, and the whole place is purely made for tourists, nothing typical here. There are much better places in the canyon...  read more »
  • An oasis in the second deepest Canyon in the world is something unique. From above whether Sagalle or the different viewpoints, they are views for its spectacular. The oasis is a network of lodges and actually almost only enjoy (which can) of your accommodation. Spectacular rise of the trekking out at night to Sangalle. It is hard but slowly makes almost everyone. And if not, you rent a mule.

  • The sangalle is a similar place even oasis, in the middle of the Canyon, has a few cabins rustic but cosy, in addition to don different really fresh water pools, crossing to reach this wonderful place is from the village called Cabanaconde, the route is usually walk down has a duration of 2:30 hours and rise about 3 to 4 hours average. Take water, to not become dehydrated and repellent for mosquitoes, the clothes do not worry as this place is warm.
