Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park is home to one one of the largest Native American tribes. One of the best ways to see everything there is to see here is to hire a guide, but you can also opt for a self-guided tour. There is a fee to enter the park. You'll love the towering buttes and beautiful red hughes. There is a visitor center and museum that are worth visiting. For full services you'll take a quick trip to Gouldings.
Monument Valley was added to the Navajo Reservation in 1884 by President Chester Arthur. But the area didn't become famous until it was featured in Western movies starting with John Ford’s “Stagecoach” in 1939. Many more movies followed. Today, Monument Valley gets about 500,000 tourists a year, many from foreign countries.
