We watched sunset at Yaki Point on our last night at the Canyon. There was a storm approaching on one side, so we could see dances of lightning and the movements of rain clouds. On the opposite side, the sun was setting behind glowing clouds. Tripadvisor does not accept panoramic photos, but both these photos were taken during our same... More

This is where you want to be for the spectacular sunsets! Take the bus, they will come back and get you every 15 minutes.

We watched the sunrise from here with just a handful of other folks. The view may be a little less panoramic but it does offer multiple spots at the edge of the rocks for photos. Take the bus right up to Yaki point.

A special place with phenomenal views of the Canyon, the best of the pictures show what is possible, we didn't get anything like this light show but it was still incredible. A MUST DO - access via the shuttle, walk or bike

This was our favorite view of the canyon. We could have stayed here all day. Get off the shuttle here and walk to your right on the rim trail (unpaved here), and soak up the view while you can.

Amazing views from Yaki. I suggest, in addition to the central "gated" area, also going to the left side and also the right side outside of the gated area. There are some amazing views from the right side of Yaki.
