Friendly rangers who even hand you a laminated guide book to borrow at the visitor center. Very interesting sites to explore. Just make sure to drinks lots of water. It's HOT in the summer.

What an awesome place to visit! Wupatki NM is definitely worth the stop to see. The park is tucked way back. It's about a 25 minute driving from the hw to get to the visitor center and the main ruins. There are small ones with trails you will pass on your way in. But you will know when you have... More

There are several sites to visit at Wupatki, and I'm glad I stopped at all of them. The ancient pueblo behind the visitor center is the most popular, and when you check in, the ranger will loan you a written guide (in your home language) to many of the features. An annual national park pass will get you into this... More

Wupatki is not only a place to see like a museum. Combined with Volcano Crater, it's also a beautiful and impressive place to be. The ruins give you the chance to explore the old way of living and to feel, how it may have been here a long time ago...

It was a 100 F day but the visit to Wupatki National Monument was well worth it. The visitors center was cool comfortable and educational. The walk thru the ruins of a ancient society was thought provoking and actually quite fun. I highly recommend it.

In the area around Flagstaff and heading south, it seems like every direction has some sort of pueblo ruin. This one is bigger than most, has been extensively restored, paved walkways, and a self-guided tour with books that the rangers will lend you. I've been visiting Wupatki intermittently for 40 years - when visitors come to town, if I'm in... More

We drove the loop through the Sunset Volcano to Wupatki on our way to the east entrance of the Grand Canyon. Give yourself at least 2 hours to stop and see the sites. These ruins were amazing to see. The park staff were very friendly and informative. If here in the summer - remember to take water and something cool... More

This monument is accessed through Sunset Crater. It is included in that entrance fee. After your visit to the crater, be sure to continue on. It is quite a ways out, but worth the trip.

When my mother-in-law told me that we were going to look at some Ruins, I fid not expect what we saw. They were absolutely amazing. When we stopped at Wupatki Pueblo Ruins, we didn't go all the way down to the wrong gathering area because there was one just like it half way down...boy was that a mistake. After we... More

This is right out side of Flaggstaff, just off of the old Route 66. American Indians last lived in these dwellings about 1,000 years ago. The ride to the dwellings is very scenic, you drive by Sunset Crater. They let you walk right up to the dwelling, but for good reason you can't climb on or go in.
