Hiking the Upper Antelope Canyons Navajo Tour, Arizona

The Antelope Canyons can be found on Navajo land east of Page, Arizona. The only way you can visit is by booking a tour to visit either the Upper Canyons or the Lower Canyons, both formed by erosion and flash flooding.  Both are slightly different, so take a look at the differences of each one and the requirements before booking. If you are planning to go here, make sure you book your tickets in advance too.
