Very close to the road, easy to walk to lookout. Bring binoculars or telescope to see the formations and ruins up close. Beautiful scenery.

Coming this far west we had to take the tour definitely glad we did it. Once-in-a-lifetime experience. It's amazing how people lived back then and still do today.

Take a Jeep tour here so you can really appreciate the site and enjoy the canyon at its base, too. The tours require a Navajo guide and are about 3 hours long.

Don't skimp on this overlook. Walk the entire pathway and you will get an awesome view of the paintings and the ruins. There are usually quite a few sellers here with very high quality merchandise.

Most folks are familiar with the ruins of Mesa Verde but have never heard of Canyon de Chelly much less understand the beauty of the ruins on view in this magnificent National Monument. Antelope House Ruin may be my favorite of all the vistas in this area, not only for the ruins but the beautiful geography of the surrounding canyon.

Again, the ruins are fenced off, but they are fairly extensive and you can walk along the fence to get good photos. Be sure to note the paintings above the ruins on the cliff...both old stuff, Anazasi, and fairly new Navajo painted Antelope running along the cliff. 2 government toilets here, and Navajo jewelry sellers. Normal turn-around point for half... More

Antelope House can be viewed from an overlook on the North Rim but get a guide (Leander Staley is your man!) and visit it up close and personal, What a treasure!

When we see the ancient drawings in the beautiful Canyon DeChelly it made me feel at awe with nature and historoy. Thunderbird Tours is a fantastic guided tour group. Thank you

Antelope House Ruins also give you a wonderful chance to view some great petroglyphs. We saw these ruins with a tour guide through the Thunderbird Lodge. Highly recommend taking the 3-hour tour to see the valley.

and ruins. We took SO many wonderful photos. The signs at some overlooks are weathered and hard to read.
