Antelope Canyon is one of the most famous slot canyons in the world. Located near Page, Arizona in the LeChee Chapter of the Navajo Nation, the sandstone structure was formed by flash flooding and wind, creating gorgeously sculpted gold- and rose-colored walls with strange and curvaceous textures.
What makes the slot canyon a true standout isn’t just the intriguing structure, but also the spectacular lighting that enters the canyon especially during the summer months, making the colors positively glow. It's a favorite location for landscape photographers and sightseers.
Despite its popularity as a tourist attraction, this is still a natural space — and a dangerous one at that. Flash floods are a concern every rainy season, and as recently as 1997, 11 tourists were killed in a flash flood that started with rainfall a full seven miles upstream. That's one of the reasons why his enthralling place is accessible only with tour groups.
