Lower Antelope Canyon (Arizona) – this visit was part of a 2-week trip in the American Southwest (May-June 2018).
Antelope Canyon was created over millions of years by the forces of water and wind that carved the sandstone into spectacular shapes. The canyon includes 2 sections: Upper Antelope Canyon and Lower Antelope Canyon. We decided to visit the latter because it was cheaper.
Lower Antelope Canyon
- a slot canyon, very narrow and a great place for photographers;
- depth ~130ft / 40m;
- entry fee $96/two people (Dixie’s Tours);
- cheaper entry fee, very popular and more crowded;
- includes ladders to descend down into the canyon;
⚠️Before visiting the canyon, check if the weather is good. If there is any forecast of flash flood, flooding in the canyon can occur. Don’t ignore the danger.
🛈 Photograph Peter Lik set the record for the world’s most expensive photograph ($6.5 million dollars) with a photo called “Ghost” taken in the Lower Antelope Canyon and capturing some light beams.
