The top 5 attractions in Kayenta

Of Cultural Interest in Kayenta
Navajo National Monument
One of those forgotten corners in the American West. (Monument Valley takes all visitors interested in Indian reservations.) Near a main road, which connects the city of Page to Monument Valley. The basic tour inside the park is short, so I think that should be a must, if only to rest for a few hours. Basically what you can see are the ruins of an Indian village carved into the rock. There is a gazebo (less than half an hour walk) with stunning views across the cliffs, a cave and inside the village. I started to follow another path that seemed to take the town, but being March, there was still snow and what was worse, ice, so I decided not to continue my adventure ...
Deserts in Kayenta
Agathla Peak
Right in the middle of nowhere, Agathla Peak seems like something from another planet. Colorful in the golden daylight, it is truly spectacular. There's so much more to Monument Valley than what you've seen in westerns...

Unusual Places in Kayenta
Sentinel Mesa
Located right at the entrance of the Monument Valley park, Sentinel Mesa is one of the main natural attractions, and shouldn't be missed. It is a series of particularly impressive, high rocky plateaus which will leave you feeling awfully small! They resemble huge tables, hence their name (mesa = table in Spanish).
Caves in Kayenta
John Ford Point
Located in the heart of the Monument Valley National Park, John Ford's Point is one of the main natural attractions, and should not be missed. It is home to a small Navajo market where there are particularly beautiful examples of Indian jewelry to see, but you'll also find one of the most famous views in the United States, that have been used in so many westerns! A discovery that takes your breath away, especially at sunset.
