Antelope Canyon is apparently one of the most visited canyons and it makes obvious sense that a trip across the south of the USA would be incomplete without a visit to Antelope Canyon. To be fair, we barely made it there as we’d already packed so much into our day and thought we might have ended up arriving after the last tour of the day had left. Thanks to a difference in time zones, it turns out we were perfectly okay for time. Antelope Canyon is located in Navajo land near Page, Arizona ad is truly a sight worth beholding. The rich colours from the water washed sandstone are truly amazing!
HOW TO GET THERE: Drive. Antelope Canyon isn’t really next to any main air or seaports so you’re gonna have to do some driving (or get someone to do it for you).
1.) No flash photography. Your photos won’t capture the true visuals of the canyon if you use the flash on your camera.
2.) There are good warning signals in place but beware of the risk of flash floods. It’s not a major concern but it can happen.
3.) Try to arrive around mid day – the light tends to penetrate the canyon better and makes for some spectacular sightseeing – not to mention, great photo opportunities!
4.) Time allotted is around 1 – 1.5 hours though it doesn’t take that long to walk across.
5.) Upper Canyon is very different from Lower Canyon. It’s easy enough to get through Upper Canyon but Lower Canyon has steps and might be harder for some people to visit.
