Some of the deepest canyons in the world cut west to the Pacific from the high crest of the Andes Mountains in Peru. This dramatic image taken from the International Space Station provides a birds-eye view down the canyons of the Rio Camana and the Rio Ocona. The low early morning sun highlights the extreme topography created by rapidly uplifting mountains and powerful water erosion by water dropping nearly 10,000 feet (more than 3000 m) in this view. At the edge of the image is the snowy flanks of Nevado Coropuna, the highest mountain in the Cordillera Occidental (6613 meters)

The coastal plane provides a small area for cultivating crops. The coastal region near the city of Camana suffered extensive damage from a tsunami in 2001 (http://www.usc.edu/dept/tsunamis/peru01/web%20pages/peru01_camana.html).

Deepest Canyons of the Andes, Camaná, Peru and Tsunami Vulnerability, and Earthquake Epicenter, Peru show other views of this area from space.
