Grand Canyon Skywalk, Hualapai Reservation
Categories: Observation Decks, Tourist Spots
Grand Canyon Skywalk--a transparent, horseshoe-shaped platform that extends over the edge of the Grand Canyon--is not for the faint of heart. Walk out and gaze down 1,000 m (3,500 ft) to see the Colorado River rushing below. This feat of modern engineering is part of the Hualapai Indian reservation; it was commissioned by and is owned by tribe. You must pay a fee to enter the reservation, plus an additional fee to go out on the platform. Personal items, including cameras, are not permitted on the Skywalk, but you can purchase a professional photograph of your visit from the gift shop.

I read lots of reviews about the Skywalk and was very pessimistic before we went and thought I would likely not go through with it. Having gone on Wed., 10/12/16, I have to admit the experience was be... read more »

Is very little time for so much to be appreciated. Each season of the year recently a different scenario, the extreme heat from 40° C to-10° C snow. Amazing.show original

SKYWALK-Walking on clouds-Grand Canyon West By Marcia Palmer-text and images the feeling of walking on the will of the cliff is indescribable. In Eagle Point (Eagle Point) of the Grand Canyon West, in the United States (Arizona), the SKYWALK is an amazing piece of engineering, able to cause chills in who the visit. It is a horseshoe-shaped glass, which juts about the emptiness of Cliff, providing a vision so extraordinary as great. Who is standing on the SKYWALK and, suddenly, dare to look down through the glass floor, what you see is a huge void that plunges to the bottom of the Canyon, the 1800 m deep. Downstairs, flanked by massive colorful walls and cliffs of the Canyon, the river Colorado. Unique combinations of colors and geological erosion, decorate the spectacular Gorge, which has 446 km long, 29 km in width and 1.8 kilometers deep. For those who fear height, the butterflies is inevitable, but can walk quiet, the structure is absolutely safe, it was designed to withstand the equivalent of 71 "Boings" 747 or an earthquake measuring 8.0 on the Richter scale. For 2 billion years of geologic history, the Colorado River and its tributaries cut their walls through layers, forming the channels, while the Colorado Plateau was uplifted. The Colorado River, finally established its course around the region there are about 5 or 6 million years ago. Since that time, he has broadened and deepened the gap. The Grand Canyon is divided into three banks: South Rim and North Rim, which are within the Grand Canyon National Park and West Rim, located within an Indian reserve and where the Skywalk. The Grand Canyon West is the home of the HUALAPAI Indian nation. The western part (Grand Canyon West, or West Rim) is very close to Vegas, about 195 km of tours, with the perfect option for a back and forth.show original
We know about no cameras policy before so not disappointed. There were 2 photographers on the skywalk.. both are very good.. giving ideas for perfect pictures. Out pictures came out very good. The experience of walking on the skywalk is breathtaking. We started early and went there by 9:00am on a Saturday. Perfect time! Girl at the ticket counter sold helicopter ride and it was awesome. I was not for big money spending on a 20 minute ride.. but it is worth every penny.
Don't do this ever! It's not worth the money. You have to buy one of the packages they offer. You will spend over 200 dollars. The day started out with a bus driver yelling at a couple for asking if the bus route went both ways. He was irritated that they couldn't speak English well. He then asked me where I was from and proceeded to tell me it's a good thing I speak American. You are not free to drive around on your own. You are forced to take a bus and go to the pre planed spots. The day ended with my daughter wanting a water. I mention this because they have the audacity to charge $3 for warm bottle water or $5 for a cold bottle water. This place should be avoided. If you're traveling from Vegas make the extra 2 hour trip to the south rim. It worth it.
Way overpriced, rip off. Scam. Worst thing is the skywalk photo scam. they prohibit use of your own camera and you have to buy their photos. Told to leave your camera in a locker. All kind of silly reasons are given. By the way in other skywalks eg Sears tower Chicago you can photograph as much as you like, same glass floor construction. The included meal option not worth it.
Skywalk is great cunstruction but overly priced not for skywalk but just for riding their buses($49 for riding bus and $22 for skywalk). I went there paid ticket for 2 person total was around $160. Just after we walking pass by ticket counter trying fegure out which way to get out of that building. their security guard was just got mad at us for blocking his way. Bus drivers were very friendly. We made it to skywalk by their bus from parking and total distance was 1.7 miles ..... great! Now we heard that skywalk is closed for bad weather so we had to wait till it reopens. We waited 4 hours and left after seen over 100 people waiting for same thing . We went back to ticket counter asked for refund. they refunded total of $44 and few change when I paid over $160. When I asked how much ticket was for skywalk? And what are those extra charges for? Their answer was because we used their transportation for total of 4 miles they charges about $50 and about $22 for skywalk. People who works at reception act likes they don't want tourist at all. Rating is 1/5 only just for people who works there otherwise I would rate it 5/5.
Welcome to the Indian money maker. It wouldn't have been a problem if they just honestly let us know about the concept when we begun our ~2hours journey to the west rim. When you get there you have no other options than PAY! Customer service is 1/5. The view is great btw.
