Indian ruins. A look back in time and a wonderfully preserved village. Geological history, Native American history, views that wow. We took our time to explore. The blow hole is pretty interesting. By the time we were done, it was an amazing view of sunset and moonrise.

The Wupatki National Monument is a definite, must-see attraction. Pros: You have the option to explore two national monuments on one road (Wupatki National Monument and Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument). You will see some of the most amazing Pueblo Indian Ruins. You will capture incredible pictures with your camera. It's inexpensive; for the Wupatki Pueblo, we paid $5.00 per... More

Strolled to the Wupatki Pueblo just behind the Visitor Center. The vista was beautiful. Put my hand over the blow hole to feel the cool air emerging from underground.

It was great being able to actually walk where the ancients walked and lived. Very educational and entertaining.

This national monument is actually a number of different sites spread out along a winding road. The area is completely serene. The scenery alone is worth seeing; fields and mountains forever. The ruins are well maintained and are fun to see both from afar and up close. It was almost like taking a step back in time... we loved it!

Enjoyed learning about the early settlers of the area and seeing what sort of dwelling they lived in. The history was great.

a bit blah and dull compared to other natural wonders in the area. It was worth it in conjunction with other attractions in the area

As pre-Columbian ruins go, these are delightfully remote, quiet, and preserved. We had a great time exploring this park and visiting each site. There was a charming "honor system" which expects each visitor to leave the ruins as they are, without the thoughtless signage and intrusion of senseless rules, cordons, etc. I like the minimalism; it added to the ambiance....

If you like Indian ruins this is worth your time. Fun place to walk around and drive around to see different ruins. Unfortunately we got rained on and didn't get to do as much walking around the ruins as we would have liked to do.

Just up the road on Highway 89 north of Flagstaff can be found the ruins of Native America dating back to the Middle Ages. Multiple storied rooms with doorways intersecting can be self-toured. There are two major structures, several miles apart. One contains a circular kiva intended for worship as well as ball court. I wish I had bought a... More
