NO LUCK NEEDED FOR THESE SLOTS
Antelope Canyon’s Slot Canyons are one must see location to add to your Lake Powell bucket list. The Slot Canyons are narrow canyons formed by the wear of water rushing through rock. Antelope Canyon is split into 2 slot canyons, the Upper and Lower canyons, both with their own separate perks.
aka Corkscrew Canyon
The Upper Canyon is one of the most beautiful places on earth due to its iconic light beams which can be seen in the months of April – September. It is 1/4 mile long on flat ground and 130 feet deep. It runs south of from State Route 98 in AZ about 15 minute drive from Page. Simply pay the permit fee and park in the parking lot when entering. A guide is required when touring the Upper Canyon, so be sure to plan for an additional tour fee. Check Page Az, for tour guide information.
aka The Crack
Lower Antelope Canyon is a half a mile long and is 120 feet deep. Tours and entrances are different than those of Upper Canyon as no guide is required for the Lower Canyon. To enter Lower Canyon, you must be able to walk down several steps of metal stairways to enter, and short ladders and stairways to exit. The Lower canyon is less crowded. Check Page Az, for tour guide and fee information.
The Antelope Slot Canyons are located near Page Arizona on Navajo Nation land, just outside Glen Canyon National Recreation Area and close to AZ 98 a few miles east of town (at milepost 299). Upper and Lower Canyon are across the way from each other, making it easy to see both canyons in the same day.
The permit fees to enter either Antelope Slot Canyon is $6 (price subject to change). Additional tour guide fees may be required. (Check tour websites for rates.)
