Take a bottle of water, a camera, be prepared to be out of breadth because of the high altitude and don't rush and enjoy each and every view you see walking to Bright Angel Point. The path is easy to walk on with just a few inclines, so okay for most people.

Bright Angel Point was our first stop once we arrived at the Grand Canyon. It took our breath away to step beyond the lodge area and see the beauty and enormity of the canyon. There are no words to describe how stunning it is! I am terrified of heights but felt safe behind the stone wall that came up to... More

First place we went to, great view and handy for the free rim bus which takes you round the rim. Bright Angel Lodge has drinks, toilets and look out studio.

From the lodge on the North Rim it's only a short walk. Some of the best views on this side of the canyon.

It's a little bit of a hike (which is considerably more difficult at 8000') but well worth it! The vista's are amazing!
