The Indus Gorge, which goes through the Himalaya mountain range in northern Pakistan is the deepest canyon in the world.

The Grand Canyon is about 1800 metres deep. That’s more than twice the height of the world’s largest skyscraper (the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, built in 2010).

In August 2013, the discovery of Greenland's Grand Canyon was reported. Located under an ice sheet, based on the analysis of date from Operation IceBridge, it is believed to be the longest canyon in the world.

The deepest river gorge in North America is Idaho's Hells Canyon. At a depth of 7,900 feet, it is even deeper than the Grand Canyon.

Venus has many craters and canyons on its surface. The troughs on the planet are part of a system of canyons that is more than 6 400 km long.
