Made famous by its sandstone buttes, Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park straddles the border of northeastern Arizona and southeastern Utah. Established in 1956, the park strives to preserve the Navajo way of life and features an otherworldly landscape of rugged sandstone hills and soaring rock spires. The protected park lies within a Navajo reservation near a small town of Goulding, which once served as a trading post. Start your exploration at the visitor center, where you can check for current road conditions, arrange for guided four-wheel drive or horseback tours of the valley, and try authentic Navajo cuisine. As you drive up to the visitor center, keep an eye out for roadside stands selling Navajo arts and crafts.

  • Must go on the dirt road or what they called "red" roads for the valley drive. The scenery is just out of this world especially right before sunset. However, the Valley drive closes at around 8.
  • do a guided sunrise tour, just do it, it is worth every cent. if you plan to drive yourself have an off road vehicle
  • Such an evocative place, the off-road drive is a must for any photographer. Every photo must have already been taken of this place, but you can't help yourself. The drive to the Rain God Mesa is worth the effort.
  • Simply amazing. Few other places in this country look so beautiful and untouched. The Navajo people have worked hard to preserve this area and I'm very grateful. It's important to understand that many of the rules and regulations here are the only reason it has remained pristine. We paid only $26 for all 5 of us to visit for the whole day. I hope some day to spend at least a night here and go some of the longer tours.
  • Iconic rock formations. Worth the stop to get close. I abused my rental SUV on the dirt road through the park. Definitely not for your average sedan.
