Zion National Park is a park located in Utah with an elevation ranging from 1,128 metres above sea level to 2,660 metres. The heart of the park is its 24-kilometre-long canyon carved by the Coalpits River. The name Zion, originally given to the valley, praised the place as the Zion described by the prophet Isaiah.
Zion National Park protects a unique environment of impressive rock formations and gorges carved and shaped by the force of the waters of the Virgin River and its tributaries. The erosive action of the water has allowed the very ancient geological history of this region to be seen in the rock walls of the canyons.
Zion National Park has an enormous variety of living beings, including many endangered species, which the park carefully protects. Man has also left his mark here, with millennia-old traces confirming his passage.
In Zion National Park you can raft the river or hike the trails that climb the red walls. There are also many Tibetan bridges that cross the river.
