Monument Valley encompasses the classic Wild West scenery of sandstone buttes, forbidding rock pinnacles and an endless expanse of drifting red sands that have been immortalised in the early Wild West films.

Monument Valley
Such scenery exists elsewhere but nowhere is it so perfectly distilled, and the sheer majesty of the place is breathtaking. The region also remains the stronghold of the Navajo culture and is little affected by tourism, making a visit here a highlight of a trip to the southwest. The most impressive monoliths are a pair called the Mittens, the taller of which rises 1000 feet above the valley floor.

Other highlights include ancient native rock art panels and Ancestral Puebloan ruins. It is possible to drive along a bumpy unsurfaced road through the valley, but the Navajo-led jeep or horse-riding trips are very much recommended.
