A 15 member delegation from the city of Enshi in the Hubei province of the People’s Republic of China will visit Grand Canyon West Oct. 8-9, 2016.
Enshi has its own version of the Grand Canyon that is fast becoming a global tourist attraction. The Enshi Grand Canyon is a little over 60 miles long, about 4,500 feet deep with a width of less than two miles.
Enshi and Grand Canyon West have agreed to a “sister canyon” relationship to promote international tourism and cultural exchanges.
The Mayor of Enshi, various Chinese municipal officials and directors of the Enshi Grand Canyon tourism development corporation will travel to Grand Canyon West from Las Vegas Saturday afternoon. The Chinese delegation will meet with members of the Hualapai Tribe and representatives from Grand Canyon West.
The two parties will discuss their mutual interest before signing a memorandum of cooperation.
While at Grand Canyon West, the Chinese delegation will experience Grand Canyon Skywalk and Guano Point. They will spend Saturday night at Hualapai Ranch before returning to Las Vegas Sunday afternoon.
