Easy to get to from Flagstaff and wonderful scenery along the way. Great historical site that has been partially restored and the guide books provided was extremely beneficial. Don't start the tour without the guidebook. Can get very warm during summer months so come prepared for the heat and the altitude but don't let that stop you from visiting.

This monument really transports you back in time. The stories and history of the area really comes alive as you walk through the ruins. You can see the ancient people going about their daily lives and the kids playing games. Definitely a must see experience!

Situated in a beautiful canyon, the dark red ancient pueblo ruins are well preserved and easy to explore. Signage is excellent and the visitor center provides a booklet to guide you through the ruins. The surrounding area is a fascinating vista of what the families and communities must have seen when they lived there centuries ago.

We drove through this location on returning from Monument Valley. Unfortunately the weather was somewhat wet which limited our viewing. We also passed through Sunset Volcano. Gave us an insight to the history of the area.

It is a few miles off the main road, but definitely worth the trip. Spend about 30 minutes there, it is just fascinating. Climb up to it to get an unreal view of the surroundings. Take the time to read the information signs about the dwelling.

Wupatki National Monument is one of several historic sites in Northern Arizona. Rather than somewhat more common cliff dwellings found in the Southwest Wupatki contains a number of fascinating, free-standing stone buildings in the middle of vast open spaces. What makes this special to me is learning about the peoples that lived and farmed in this arid climate. The interpretive... More

As someone who does not really appreciate hot/dry weather, I am amazed that Indians lived and thrived in this area before vehicles made travel quick and easy and before water lines made water easily available to everyone. These ruins are very interesting to see and easy to walk around and take in. My teens (as well as my husband and... More

The Wupatki National Monument is amazing. Sometimes in life it's best to follow your instincts and do what that voice inside your head tells you to do. The visit to Wupatki was one time I listened to the voices in my head and it turned out to be something I will never forget. The drive from Sunset Crater to Wupatki... More
