The breathtaking sandstone rocks are the most beautiful at sunrise and sunset, when their unique red hue comes to spotlight. They appeared in many movies. The most famous is probably Forrest Gump.
Monument Valley is located on the Indian territory of the Navajo tribe, on the border between Arizona and Utah.
Visitors can pay for their own car entry ($ 20) or use the guide service ($ 130- $ 200). We decided to go on own. The road was unpaved and dusty, but the terrain wasn´t as difficult as expected.
Different sources say that you spend about 1-2 hours in the park, but get ready for a much longer visit. A really spectacular scenery ... Let´s say monumental.
Refreshments, souvenirs and toilet only at the beginning... Visitor Center
