Let’s talk about monuments… not the human made ones, but the naturals! Monument Valley in Navajo land is located in Utah and Arizona States and its is the biggest natural monument in US! This is the land of dreams, of culture and nature and deserves to be experienced! We only had one day in Monument Valley so after waking up at this extraordinary scenery where the glittering golden light reflects on the rocks, we headed to the meeting point where the Monument Valley Safari tour starts!
Monument Valley Safari tour
We joined s Scenic and Cultural Safari Guided off road adventure tour for 2,5 hours and 28 miles! The Safari was rather than rewarding since we got the chance to explore almost the whole region of picturesque Monument Valley even the restricted area of Old country where normally no tourists are allowed on their own!
The scenery is made of untouched desert landscapes of Lower Monument Valley, gorgeous arches and spires accompanied with breathtaking red and orange colors and sights, avid hikers and you ll definitely love it from the very first moment of the tour!
Our tour guide Bobby helped us gain insight into the region from the perspective of someone whose ancestors have inhabited it for generations!
The Safaris highlights
Journey through the restricted region of Lower Monument Valley discovering for yourself the untouched splendor of Navajo Land. Traverse the desert landscape visiting the world’s largest Elephant Butte, and the Three Sisters spires at John Ford’s Point. Later, divert into the back country and see up close the valley’s famous Big Chief Monument, and Sleeping Dragon Rock. Further into the restricted area venture underneath Sun’s Eye arch, the valley’s second largest arch and find some of the valley’s oldest Anasazi ruins, petroglyphs, and pictographs.
