Attractions & Sightseeing in Grand Canyon

 

 

 

The Grand Canyon, one of the Seven Natural Wonders in the World, took five million years with a little help from the Colorado River, to take the shape that it is in today. Situated in Arizona, this mammoth structure stretches 277 miles and is a mile in height. The Canyon attracts almost 5 million visitors each year, thus making it one of the world’s premier natural attractions. It is comprised of 3 parts – the north rim, the south rim, and the inner canyon.

Casual sightseeing is frequent in the south rim. But for the adventurous kind, whitewater rafting, hiking and helicopter tours are available. The rim-river-rim hiking style has been discouraged by the officials because hikers are subject to intense physical pressure and heat exhaustion because of the heat at the bottom of the canyon, but experienced hikers frequently complete the hike.

 

The North rim sees an ultra marathon each year known as the Grand Canyon Ultra Marathon. It is a 126 km race which stretches over a day. Camping in both the rims is restricted only to established campsites. The North rim boasts of large camping areas managed by the Kaibab National Forest. But the North rim campsites are often closed due to seasonal snowfall and resultant road blockages. Recetas faciles y rápidas

For those who want a relaxing view of this epic natural wonder, the Coconino Canyon Train is the best option. This 90 minute train ride originates in the Grand Canyon National Park and takes passengers through 24 miles of scenic beauty. The train runs on tracks built in the 1800s.

Tourists who prefer a more vertical view can board helicopters or small planes from Las Vegas, Phoenix and the Grand Canyon National Park airports. A late 1990s crash has forced authorities to law down the law with regard to the height factor. Flights are not allowed to fly within 1500 feet of the Canyon.

There is also the Grand Canyon Skywalk on the south rim, opened by the native Hualapai tribe. It is a spectacular glass bottomed structure which has been in the news recently, but has opened to mixed reviews from visitors. These are mostly because cameras are not allowed on the Skywalk, for the risk of damage to the glass caused by any falling articles. The Skywalk has also been criticized for having a steep admission fee. Nevertheless, a visit to the place is worth your money.
