If you have watched cowboy movies you will have seen some of the valley's stunning landscape. But now of that prepares you for the energy of the valley. It is hot and dry with red desert sand and massive towering buttes & mesas. Bring a lot of digital space & spare batteries you will need them. Every turn presents multiple... More

The drive is great just make sure your vehicle has rather high clearance.. I saw a car with the bumper dragged off. The alternative is a rip off.. 75 bucks per person in the back of a pick up truck.

I've wanted to come here even since watching John Wayne's film "The Searchers" which shows how beautiful this place is. I could ascertain two essential activities. One is a hike on a trail. It takes you through red sand around one of the "monuments." I recommend going early in the morning before it gets hot because it is quite steep... More

That was the absolute highlight of our Arizona/Utah trip and the best NP! Dont drive your own car but take a tour (they offer tours at the parking lot). We took a private tour in a pick up with a Navajo guide and it was awesome. With a guide you get to see restricted areas and learn a lot about... More

I can't say enough that if you want to appreciate the valley you have to take a 4x4 tour. What you see from the visitors center is only a tiny fraction of what the valley has to offer. We too a tour with Simpsons company and the guides are knowledgeble and funny. We visited a Hogan, saw wool being made... More

This is where to come and see where they made so many Western movies. The views are well worth the trip. It was very hot and dusty when we were there and the ground conditions are as expected. The roads are not sealed so be ready for lots of dust. The views away from the valley are just as good... More

I drove round the trail in a Nissan Sentra today without any problem. The views are spectacular and there is easily enough extra to be seen that can't be seen from the public roads to make the entry fee worthwhile. Incidentally, the classic photo of a long straight road with the buttes and spires in the distance is on Highway... More

While the views were more than I can describe, they were equally breathtaking outside of the tribal park. It was totally not worth the $20.00 fee just to drive around a dusty, sandy road and get slightly closer. My suggestion: drive as close to the gate without paying and take pictures, drive back west for a few miles seeing the... More

The valley was better than expected. We had seen the pictures and at first sight from the hotel it was good but it is only when you get down into the valley and go round you realise how good it really is. The views are different from every angle and the contrast with the open plains into the distance is... More
