The north rim is higher than the south. That's part of why it's closed during the snowy winter months. But it's also isolated -- at the end of a long route far from the tourist Mecca on the south rim -- which is why I recommend coming here during the months while it's open. You'll find lots of peaceful spots free of rumbling tour buses and people with loud voices.
THIS is the quintessential Grand Canyon (not including even more remote parts that basically aren't on the tourist path at all). Plan a few extra days and go!
