Entrance to the park is pricey for what you get... but, still should be on every travelers bucket list of things to see. Food at all Navaho controlled restaurants is VERY cafeteria like... and almost EVERYTHING seems to have "Indian Bread" as part of the menu... which is basically HUGE pieces of fried bread. Not exactly healthy, but worth a... More

Firstly ignore the 'welcome' centre on highway 160. There is no info here and just people knocking in your window trying to get you to join their tours. It costs $20 per car and you are given a leaflet with the scenic drive included. They should warn you that this is not a wise idea unless your car has high... More

We have all seen the views in various films over the years, however the actual views are even better, in fact breathtaking. We did the 17 miles scenic drive which was bumpy on the first and last mile (as it is a loop) drive, rest of the drive was less bumpy. Make sure you use the facilities first before starting... More

This is the only way to "get into" close proximity to the "monuments". Take a dust mask for the road traveling.

You have seen it in coutless Western films. Even television shows used the scenic backdrop. But, even this moments can not prepare you for the power and inspiration of this unique place of high desert beauty. The road is very bumpy. It is better to ride the dusty trail on a multi-passenger converted true. You will bounce up and down... More

As a photographer, I loved this place and spent a good few hours doing a self-drive through the park. If you do intend driving through the park, I would recommend going with an SUV. Note that the extras offered i.e. safari ride, walking tours, horse trails, etc. are all done by independent operators based outside the visitor center and not... More

Monument Valley was one of the places I dream to visit all my life. I went with my family members and we had a great time. Stay on front of the red mountains may run my imagination, because I imagine the old west time and the cowboy movies. Was great to me be there.

This place is HUGE! The size and scale is awe inspiring and as incredible as the Grand Canyon. Like so many places in the US, you feel like you are on a movie set as it is all so familiar from Hollywood movies. Make a point to see this in your life!

We enjoyed a day at Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park. The views are incredible, surreal! Every monolith has a name and a story. Hundreds of old Westerns (including Stagecoach 1938), and more recent productions were filmed here, and I can certainly see why. It started as a trading post by the Gouldings and now has lots of tourist attractions alongside... More

We have all seen pictures of Monument Valley but being there is incredible. The views are breath taking. We did the self drive trip around and, in retrospect we should have taken a jeep tour to avoid wrecking our vehicle. Unless you have a a truck I would recommend leaving your car at the top and letting the professionals take... More
