Wander through the winding golden corridors of Antelope Canyon


You’ve probably seen it on your Instagram feed, but a walk through Antelope Canyon is more than heaven. Located on Navajo land on Page, Arizona.

The Antelope Canyon consists of two separate, breathtaking slot canyon sections, which are individually called as “Upper Antelope Canyon” or “The Crack“; And “Lower Antelope Canyon” or “The Corkscrew“.

The slot Canyon is accessible only by guided tour. Wind through the Tawny, Striated Corridors, where beams of the desert sun make the space Glow Golden formed over time by Rainwater Erosion.

Upper Antelope Canyon named, Navajo is Tsé bighánílíní, meaning – the place where water runs through rocks. And the Lower Antelope Canyon called Hazdistazí (known as “Hasdestwazi” by the Navajo Parks and Recreation Department), or ‘spiral rock arches’.

The Canyon walls have a smooth and flowing shape to see this type of Erosion on a Grander scale. Head to Horseshoe Bend, only 10 miles away, known as the intimate Grand Canyon experience.

Also, you’ll find here a Horseshoe Bend – It’s a horseshoe-shaped carved meander of the Colorado River. It can be found 1,000 feet below and it makes for another Insta-Worthy Snapshot! Indulge yourself in the breathtaking beauty of Horseshoe Bend.

At a distance of 5 miles (8.0 km), Horseshoe Bend is located. It’s situated downstream from Lake Powell and Glen Canyon Dam within Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, approximately 4 miles (6.4 km) southwest of Page.

The place can be reached via hiking a 1.5-mile (2.4 km) round trip from U.S. Route 89. Horseshoe Bend can be viewed from the steep cliff above.

Horseshoe Bend’s rock walls consist of hematite, platinum, garnet, and other minerals.

In fact, Antelope Canyon is a renowned location for photographers and voyagers. It’s also a source of tourism business for the Navajo Nation.

The place is now accessible by tour only since 1997 when the Navajo Tribe announced it a Navajo Tribal Park. All visits are done via several licensed tour operators. It’s very difficult and in fact, impossible to visit the canyon on your own. Therefore, the heart-stopping views of the canyons are accessible by guided tour only.
