You just have to go there and you will be amazed, awed,and captivated. A truly hidded treasure, just like much of Arizona, especially on or near the Navajo Reservation.

Canyon de Chelly has to be one of the most spiritual places on earth. We have hiked down to White House ruins a couple of times and the peace and tranquility just washes over you.
Don't mind the vendors, they are lovely people in the main, I acquired a fantastic "storyteller" bracelet cuff crafted by Mr Henry, showing his hogan, Spider Rock, the cottonwood tress and the cliffs.
Take the time to visit, let the canyon work its magic on you, take back wonderful memories and leave behind only footprints.

We have been here many times and it never gets old! It is beautiful and a must see for any trip to the Navajo Reservation.

This canyon was quite different than Chaco (see review) desert scrub on top but green and beautiful below. We only had time for the White House Ruin Trail, but would love to come back for a native guided tour of the canyon.

Two of us took a guided tour into the canyon in an AWD vehicle fitted with big fat tires to navigate the sandy canyon bottom. The native guide/driver was friendly, courteous and illuminating, Do not believe there is anyplace like this anywhere else in the world. It is a national treasure, beautiful, mysterious, breathtaking, historical and sacred. A pity it is so remote to those who confine their travel to the Interstate. Passage through the town of Chinle is an experience in itself.
