If you think Arizona’s Grand Canyon is the deepest canyon in the world, think again. There is an even grander canyon in the Himalayas called the Yarlung Zangbo Grand Canyon which can be up to 17, 657 feet deep in certain places. It is 1.6 million feet long and is also the highest green piece of land on Earth.
