It is amazing place, if have a chance, should come once in your lifetime.
One of the seven natural wonders of the world, this massive gorge is world renowned for its enormous scale and size, and its beautifully colored landscape.
Famous for its vast size and depth, the Grand Canyon offers visitors dramatic views, great hiking trails and a unique window into the earth’s geological history.
The canyon was created by the Colorado River wearing a path through the rock over millions of years. It’s 277 miles (446 kilometers) long, up to 18 miles (29 kilometers) wide, and reaches depths of over a mile (1.6 kilometers).
Head to the South Rim to find Grand Canyon Village and many of the more popular lookouts. Wander the village itself to see historic buildings and stock up on supplies. Check out the Desert View Watchtower to look down from 1.4 miles (2.3 kilometers) above the canyon floor.
South Rim can get extremely busy in high season. To escape the crowds, drive over to North Rim. It’s only open during the warmer months, but it sits higher than South Rim and gives equally spectacular views. Head over to Grand Canyon West to walk out over the edge on the Grand Canyon Skywalk. Those looking to get even higher can organize flyovers in planes or Grand Canyon Helicopter Tour.
For a totally different view, get your feet back on the ground and go for a hike. There are trails of all lengths and difficultly levels. Take the Bright Angel Trail for an easy but satisfying hike that ends at the Indian Gardens. The Hermit Trail is more challenging and goes all the way to the river. If you’d like to camp out, rent a site at one of the developed campgrounds or get a permit to stay in the backcountry.
See the area from horseback on one of the many rides arranged by local companies. Trips range from a half-day excursion to a week-long adventure.
The Grand Canyon offers a unique view into the earth’s geological past, stunning views and miles of hiking trails.
While visiting Downtown Flagstaff, you might make a stop by sights like Flagstaff Symphony Orchestra and West of the Moon Gallery.
