This is one of those off the beaten path National monuments with outstanding views, cultural and historical significance and just plain peace and tranquility. It's not over run with noisy tourists and you don need to hurry. In fact, you won't want to. Quiet and beautiful.

I stayed in the Sacred Canyon Lodge just inside the park. one day i booked a guide and took a tour of the canyon. if you do that be sure to request an open jeep so your views will not be impeded. I didn't know to ask. I was in the back seat of an SUV with a sun roof.Not... More

We parked our travel trailer in a nearby RV park convenient to the visitor's center and the canyon. We were blessed with the most beautiful weather which gave us treasured photos to take home. The staff at the center are friendly and very helpful. We got to all but one of the lookouts on the map. It was a wonderful... More

Second time visiting this beautiful canyon. Last time we was driving along the rim and make stops at the lookouts to watch down the canyon. This time we did a hike down to White House ruins and we didn´t regret that. The hike was not difficult but the sun in the mid day can be strong so bring water and... More

Canyon de Chelly is located approx in Chinle, AZ. The entire park lies within Navajo tribal lands and there are actual families that live year-round in the canyon. If I recall correctly, it is the oldest uninterrupted inhabited area spanning some 5,000 years. There are no entrance fees to the park but there is a visitor's center if you wish... More

Wife and I (seniors) scheduled a short 3 day road trip so that we could see the canyon. We were not disappointed. Lots of history here and the views are a spiritual experience. We drove the rim on the South side first - visiting the overlooks to get a top down view - and then scheduled a 3 hour tour... More

The day we spent in Canyon de Chelly was everything I had hoped it would be. We booked our Navajo guide into the park through Tsegi Jeep Tours and our guide, Dennis, was excellent. Not only did we get a lot of the history of the canyon, we got Dennis' personal history of growing up there and information on the... More

It is one of the beauty of Arizona, but not enough publicized. It must be seen to appreciate its beauty. No writing can do justice to this place

If you only do the rim run, you are really missing the real Canyon de Chelly! It is nice to ride both north and south rims to get an idea of what you may see when you get down into the canyon. Plus, if you are careful, you may find some really nice Native American artwork while riding the rim...
