Monument Valley, located in the city of Oljato-Monument Valley, United States, is a natural wonder that boasts an array of sandstone masterpieces that tower at heights of 400 to 1,000 feet. Framed by scenic clouds casting shadows that roam the desert floor, the angle of the sun accents these graceful formations, providing scenery that is simply spellbinding.

This dirt road starts at the visitor center and winds through the majestic formations such as the East and West Mitten Buttes and Merrick Butte. For a more immersive experience, guided tours led by Navajo guides offer insights into Navajo culture and the valley’s history. The valley is also home to the Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park where visitors can learn about Navajo history and culture.
