I arranged the trip with meditation village who were very helpful and sent us a car with a very experienced guide to pick us up from our hotel at 4:30 am and drop us off at 10 am. We spent around 2 hours inside the canyon enjoying... More

We did a day trip with a Bedouin guide to the Colored Canyon and I highly recommend it. Its a very easy hike once you're there, though getting there requires driving off road a lot so if you don't do well in bumpy cars be careful. The landscape is beautiful and we were lucky because no one else was there... More

We visited the coloured canyon for a few hours trip and found it beautiful and very interesting. We would advise people to wear shoes not sandals as the ground is rough underfoot, also take water and your camera, A little scrambling, rather than climbing, is required so we took a small rucksack to hold all our bits and pieces. Don't... More

We visited the coloured canyon as part of a trip to the Coloured Canyon and the Blue Hole. We spent a little over 30 minutes there which was perfect as it was a very hot day and the scenery is very spectacular with some great photo opportunities. The guide was very informative regarding the vegetation etc. Recommended for a trip
