Rainbow Bridge National Monument, Page

4.7
#5 of 9 in Nature in Page
One of the world's largest natural bridges, Rainbow Bridge National Monument spans 71 m (234 ft) in the isolated foothills of Navajo Mountain. Though known for centuries by Native Americans who held the bridge scared, and sighted by trappers, prospectors, and cowboys in the 1800s, the existence of this massive sandstone bridge was not made public knowledge until 1909. To reach it, take a boat trip on Lake Powell, followed by a 1.6 km (1 mi) hike from the dock that crosses rugged terrain. Both the bridge and the trail are on Navajo tribal lands, and the National Park Service asks visitors to be respectful of this. It is not illegal to approach or walk under the arch, but the Park Service requests that you stay in the viewing area.

  • You should necessarily descend to the bridge, you will not regret it. You can descend through beautiful wooden ladders.

  • We did the half-day boat trip up the Lake to the branch leading to the bridge. Engine power is reduced and the boat glides between high red rocks while the water changes color Scarlet. All around the silence. Then he lands on a long jetty and we walk on the path leading to the bridge. Wonderful show. This is a sacred place for the Navajo Indians and you feel a sort of spirituality. We stayed on the boat for practical reasons and time and even if the cost is quite high experience was unforgettable
