How to visit
Monument Valley has one entrance off U.S. Highway 163 in Utah, between the small towns of Mexican Hat and Kayenta. It’s about 2.5 hours from Moab, Utah, and about 2 hours from Page, Arizona.
The entrance Fee will cost you $20 per car for vehicles holding up to 4 people (it’s $10 per person beyond 4). I highly recommend to drive the 17-mile Loop Road. Backcountry tours are extra.
Navajo Spirit Tours, which cost $75 per person. The “classic” Monument Valley tour is the most popular, though most companies also offer tours to places like Mystery Valley, Hunts Mesa, and Teardrop Arch if you want to get off the beaten path.
When to visit: Monument Valley is open to visitors every day of the year except Christmas and New Year’s Day. It’s busiest during the summer and school holidays.
We were up at 5am to see the sunrise. It’s a beautiful moment to take pictures. As is the sunset but be warned: it gets really chilly!
