Yaki Point, Grand Canyon National Park

4.8
#10 of 27 in Sightseeing in Grand Canyon National Park
Lookout Tourist Spot
Just a short, easy walk from the visitor's center, Yaki Point offers excellent views from the Grand Canyon's South Rim. Take time to stop in the visitor's center for maps and more information on the canyon. Park at the lot by the main road or the picnic area, and walk or take a shuttle bus to the vantage point. Its specific location offers views different to other popular points, including the long red ridge above Cremation Creek to the east. Sunrise and sunset are particularly spectacular here, when the orange sun and shadows play across the canyon and create stunning views. If you go in the morning, be sure to dress warmly and take a blanket to sit on.

  • There are characteristic of hitsgenobo likened to the temples of India from the observation deck. Friendly staff and I visited the Grand Canyon of late, but getting bored a little landscape, less surprising than new discoveries. Car, car-free village will be limited, to use the bus, but think it's worth.

  • From Yaki viewpoint you have the best sunset view over a big part of the Canyon. Don't forget to look at the clouds in the sky, while they get very special effects too.  more »

  • One of most popular stops on the free Grand Canyon tram. Less crowded overlook than the main one by the Visitors Center. May want to ride to Yaki Point to start your viewing
  • If you wish to get away from mass amounts of people along the South Rim of the Grand Canyon National Park, take the shuttle out to this point and take a nice hike along the top of the rim. Great views for photography. Also, there is a hawk migration count in the fall that is very exciting.
  • Hands down the best place to watch the sunset over the Grand Canyon.
  • One of America' National treasures for good reason. It's is absolutes GRAND. You must see it in person to understand its sheer size. I picture just won't capture how majestic it truly is. There are numerous bathrooms, a lot of parking, paved trails and viewing areas as well. There are even opportunities to venture off the trail, away from the herds of people. Yes, you can find areas to appreciate its awe by yourself or with a companion.
  • Great place for the sunsets at the Grand Canyon. Desertview is also a great place of you wanna go further east.

Where to stay in Grand Canyon National Park

You'll find plenty of options if you want to stay inside Grand Canyon National Park. Most campgrounds and lodges sit around the South Rim area, and they tend to fill up quickly for summer visits, so book as far in advance as possible. The price range for lodge accommodations varies greatly, so there's something for nearly every budget. The less-visited North Rim features one lodge. For those who hike to the bottom of the canyon, dormitories and cabins are available at Phantom Ranch. If you can't secure a place in the park or find something there to your liking, the small village near the south entrance offers inns and economy motels. You’ll have the convenience of nearby restaurants if you stay there.
