Beautiful slot canyon in the red rock desert.

Antelope Canyon is a slot canyon found in the east of Page, Arizona on land that belongs to the Navajo. There are two scenic sections referred to as Upper and Lower Antelope Canyon. The Navajo names for the two slot canyon areas are Tse bighanilini meaning “the place where water runs through rocks” for the upper canyon and Hazdistazi, or “spiral rock arches” for the lower canyon. The canyons are accessible by guided tours only. Guides will explain the geology, culture, history and insights of the area. Tour experiences for Upper Canyon run daily for $57 for children that are aged 4-7 and $75 for ages 8 and up. Be prepared to hike in dusty, sandy conditions, and be sure to check the weather ahead of your trip to plan appropriate outfits. Lower Canyon is accessible by an installed metal stairway, and it is a more difficult hike than Upper Canyon-though it still provides beautiful views and photography opportunities.

Antelope Canyon was formed by the erosion of sandstone due to sudden flash flooding which rushes water through the canyon due to the abruptness of the storm and the dryness of the area, causing the flowing shapes in the canyon. Over time, the erosion deepens the corridors and creates deep slots. Always be aware of the weather when visiting slot canyons, as flash floods are very dangerous and happen suddenly.

Photographers looking for ideal conditions with light beams running through the slot canyons will find the best success from about mid-March to early October. Winter colors are more muted since sunlight does not readily find its way into the canyon.
