Description

Entry to Antelope Canyon is restricted to guided tours led by authorized tour guides.

Antelope Canyon can be argued one of the most breathtaking and tranquil places to visit. Gently carved from the Navajo sandstone over the course of millions of years, the slot canyons are truly magnificent. Twisting narrow slots with just enough space for a small group to walk the sandy floor - and an occasional brilliant shaft of sunlight from above.

Antelope Canyon is separated into two canyons - Upper and Lower Antelope. Each canyon contains the hidden "slots" carved from layers of swirling sandstones by seasonal streams, and both drain from the south into Lake Powell. The canyons are so narrow in spots that one can easily stretch out his or her arms and touch both sides.

Upper Antelope is approximately 4,000 feet above sea level and the canyon walls rise 120 feet above the sandy streambed. Lower Antelope Canyon is Hasdestwazi, or "spiral rock arches." Both are located within the LeChee Chapter of the Navajo Nation.

Two elements play a critical role in sculpting this amazing canyon. Though dry most of the year, Antelope Canyon at times can be flooded, with water after rains. It is the water, primarily wearing away the sandstone grain by grain, forming these beautiful and graceful curves in the rock. Wind has also helped created this fantastic canyon for us to enjoy.
