Formed over hundreds of years of water running through sandstone, Antelope Canyon is both a sacred site for the Navajo and a favorite destination for tourists from all over the world.
To Navajo people, entering Antelope Canyon is like entering a cathedral. They pause before entering to be in the right frame of mind and as a sign of respect. This also allows them to leave feeling uplifted by what Mother Nature has to offer, and to be in harmony with something greater than themselves. It was, and is, a spiritual experience.
