Antelope Canyon

Monday, 2 March 20150 comments

The amazing antelope canyon is a slot canyon in the American southwest. It is located on Navajo land near page, Arizona. Antelope canyon includes two separate, photogenic slot canyon sections, referred to individually as upper antelope or the crack and lower antelope canyon or the corkscrew. Antelope canyon was created by erosion of Navajo sandstone primarily due to flash flooding and also due to sub aerial processes. Antelope Canyon is a popular location for photographers and sightseers.

Antelope Canyon is visited exclusively through guided tours, in part because rains during monsoon season can quickly flood the canyon. Rain does not have to fall on or near the Antelope Canyon slots for flash floods to whip through, as rain falling dozens of miles away 'upstream' of the canyons can funnel into them with little prior notice.

The road to antelope canyon is gated by the Navajo nation and entry is restricted to guide tours led by authorised tour guides. Tours can be purchased in nearby Page, and range from $35 to $82 per person, depending on the time of the day and length of the tour

Located within the lechee chapter of the canyon. Lower antelope canyon hasdestwazi or 2spiral rock arches” located within the lechee chapter of the canyon.
