As reportedly the most photographed place in the world, you may have seen Monument Valley on the screen countless times before, but nothing will prepare you for when you first set eyes on the vast, breathtaking geographical wonder for yourself. Translated as the ‘valley of the rocks’ in Navajo, Monument Valley is situated on the border of Arizona and Utah on the Colorado Plateau, and lies within the Navajo Nation. Offering a window into an ancient world, the sandstone masterpieces tower to heights of 400 to 1,000ft, casting shadows onto the wild, sun-baked desert plain below. A symbol of the American West,
these startling formations have played a starring role in many movies, TV shows and westerns – their towering silhouettes are famed worldwide. The landscape is only part of the story though, and during any Monument Valley holiday you'll learn about the fascinating history and culture of the area and the Navajo people.
