The protected park lies within a Navajo reservation near a small town of Goulding, which once served as a trading post.

As you drive up to the visitor center, keep an eye out for roadside stands selling Navajo arts and crafts.

  • We went back to this magical place after it is visited for the first time 20 years ago. The one time we swore we'd come back again, and honestly I wouldn't have believed that this time he could arouse such strong emotions. We visited this time in the company of some friends and through us making yourself the full tour of the Park. Dispassionate advice we give to everybody I talk is to shop around in the late afternoon by calculating the time to fully enjoy all the time of sunset. Once again, as then I try the same powerlessness faced with the impossibility to describe with words, colors and atmosphere of this place for me is unique in the world and the strong emotions that no other place I can give.

  • We stayed in nearby Kayenta. About 20 minutes away is the famous Monument Valley. in the morning we took a ride on horseback in the northern part of the Park ... it was really good because that area of the Park can be visited only in that way. In the afternoon we visited the southern part of the park with a jeep than usual owner who had sold l excursion with cavalli...la the South is so beautiful as to leave you speechless, it's like another planet. I highly recommend you spend extra money to do this hike, as from a certain point on the road is accessible only by them and not by any tourist. We were impressed because in addition to the fantastic (but classic and much photographed) Monument Valley panorama we could visit really unexpected scenarios that we have left in our hearts. bottom line: I recommend to visit the length and breadth of the Monument Valley.

  • We went in October, so less world. We did we even (in jeep) at our own pace. It shakes indeed. We were able to stop to take pictures that we wanted, unlike the proposed shuttles that seem not to stop.
