In the last few decades, Antelope Canyon has become world-famous for its incredible sandstone walls of undulating red rock, which rise 120 feet above the streambed. For many more generations, this natural wonder has been a sacred place to the Navajo people, who own the land today.
Because of its deep religious significance, members of the Navajo tribe treat Antelope Canyon with incredible respect, similar to how a devout Catholic might consider a cathedral. Being able to see this particular slot canyon is a privilege, and guests to Antelope Canyon should exercise reverence and take care to treat the canyon respectfully and thoughtfully.
A visit to Antelope Canyon is a peaceful and awe-inspiring experience, and a reminder of the power of things much larger than ourselves.
Note: Antelope Canyon is currently closed due to COVID-19.
