I had written about the Lower Antelope Canyon a few weeks back. I absolutely loved it!
The other one – called the Upper Antelope Canyon – is just a few kilometers away from it. It is the most visited of the two because of two reasons – first, its entrance and the entire length are at the ground level, thus requiring no climbing; second, the beams of sunlight filtering through the top are more common there.I suggest reading my earlier post first as I had given a lot of details there comparing it to its upper counterpart.
Even though the upper is preferred by tourists, I would give a better rating to the lower one, owing to its thrill quotient. Regardless, prefer the summer months to visit as the sunlight creates the effect that would keep you spellbound!If you love photography, these slot canyons will be a delight to capture at every step of the way. Many people go for dedicated photography tours, as those will give you inputs on prominent locations/settings.
We went with the general tours, as written earlier (you can only go with the tour companies, not on your own).
