Ya’ at’ eeh. Hello. And welcome to the land of the Navajo. This cultural kaleidoscope not only takes to the Navajo Nation of Arizona, but also Antelope Canyon, Monument Valley, and Canyon de Chelly National Monument.
The Most Beautiful Train Ride in the World
Copper Canyon is the largest canyon in North America. At an altitude of 8,000 feet, the mountain peaks are snow-capped in the winter while the canyon bottom remains a tropical climate. The Copper Canyon is home to the least acculturated Native Americans in North America, the Tarahumara Indians, who are semi-nomadic cliff dwellers. The “Train Ride in the Sky” provides the only access to this wilderness and is probably the most dramatic railway journey in the Western Hemisphere as it travels through 86 tunnels and over 37 trestles.
