Chinle Travel Guide

Arguably as mesmerizing as the Grand Canyon, Canyon de Chelly National Monument is one of Arizona’s most underrated treasures.

Book a Navajo-guided horseback trek through Totsonii Ranch; you’ll meander through Canyon de Chelly’s spectacular pair of 1,000-foot canyons.

The mile hike down to the intricate Anasazi ruins built high into sandstone cliffs is the only excursion through the monument that doesn’t require a Navajo escort. To explore the canyons further, arrange for a guide in advance at the visitor center.
