Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park (USA) Reviews
Newest Review: ... conditions-- We decided to do the longest drive on the first day and the seven hours to monument valley went relatively quickly. We took advice from people on tripadvisor, bought a cheap cool bag, some ice and a tray of water which cost us less than $15 from the amazing Seven Eleven (love that place!) and started our desert adventure. Except, it wasn't really as much of a desert as we had imagined. Sure, it was sandy, we knew it wouldn't be a proper desert as is arid land rather than semi-arid but I'd imagined narrow roads elevated above sandy shoulders, and we didn't get that at all! It is by no means a complaint, in fact, we both found it ... more

**Background and Location ** Monument Valley (MV) is nowhere near as famous as the Grand Canyon, but in my opinion it is so underrated! MV is in the American South-West in Arizona, but close to the borders of Colarado, New Mexico and Utah. The climate is semi-arid (aka VERY HOT in the summer) and if you google search 'Monument Valley', you are likely to recognise the landscape as it is where most Western Films were set (especially John Wayne stuff). It is famous for it's huge monoliths of rock which are shaped and sculpted by natural erosion and weathering processes. I didn't realise how close this was to the Grand Canyon, just a 3 hour drive ... Read the complete review

I had never heard of Monument Valley (part of the native American lands of the Navajos in the middle of America, somewhere near Utah and Arizona) and having just visited the Gran Caynon did not think I would/could be more impressed by a nature wonder. Secretly I was torn between excitement of going and wondering if the drive could possibly be worth it! As we approached Monument Valley all my doubts disappeared, I had never seen before or since such a remote, stunning, spectacular or breath-taking place. You may think I'm going over board but this is a truly amazing place. Stepping out of the truck felt like stepping out onto Mars, with burnt terracotta sands ... Read the complete review

"The Valley of Rocks" ------------------------- It's called "The Valley of Rocks" by the Navajo people or the Native Americans. You probably will already recognise Monument Valley, even though you maybe think you don't - as it has been used as the setting for many western films and backdrop for numerous other media related things... So, a film fan's paradise, but, as much as I love movies, and as much as filming has contributed in making the park as well-known as it is today, there is so much else to see and learn here that I don't really consider Monument Valley primarily to do with the fact that the park has featured in many ...

Monument Valley is located in Northern Arizona, near other famous attractions like The Grand Canyon (which I have also reviewed) and Meteor Crater. It is in the Navajo Nation and they run and own the park; they are the native Indians of this area. *Cost: unfortunatley you cannot use an Annual Parks Pass to enter the Valley however the cost is only $5 per person. At this point you must ensure you have sufficient fuel to complete the 17 mile long drive through the valley or you can use the buses provided at $65 per person for a 2 hour long tour of the park. *What to do there: the visitor centre has few locally made gifts for example, arrow heads and ...
