Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend In One Day - A Must Read Guide (Upper/Lower Antelope Full Comparison)
Antelope Canyon Introduction
The Antelope Canyon has been quite popular in recent years. However, due to the size of the location, they can only open to a limited amount of guests each day. If you want to visit the antelope canyon (upper or lower), be sure to book your tickets ahead of time. Besides Antelope Canyon, most people also visit the Horseshoe Bend nearby.
In fact, one of the reasons why Antelope Canyon is so popular is that the most expensive photography in the world was shot here inside the Upper Antelope. Since the upper antelope has this mysterious light beam, it is difficult to get a ticket for the upper antelope, especially during the summer time. It is often sold out, and you should definitely book in advance if you want to visit the Upper Antelope Canyon.

What is the difference between the upper antelope and the lower antelope?
Many people may be curious as to where the Upper Antelope Valley and the Lower Antelope Valley are worse. In fact, the terrain and scenery on both sides are similar. Here we use a table to organize the way to let everyone know at a glance, understand the difference between the upper and lower Antelope Valley.
|Upper Antelope||Lower Antelope|
|Comparison of terrain and walking difficulty||A single entrance enters the park, and the ground shape is almost flat and the walking difficulty is low.||One side enters, the other side comes out. The terrain is undulating and needs to climb up and down, making it difficult to walk. (not suitable for pregnant women)|
|Feature comparison||The upper antelope can see the light beam if it enters the park at noon (as shown in the picture that was originally auctioned for millions at the beginning of the text). The Upper Antelope Valley is a jeep entering the park, while the Lower Antelope Valley is lined up. (The crowds are raging in the summer, and sometimes the antelopes wait for an hour when they line up in the park.) Therefore, the local antelope is called the "VIP group" between the local guides.||The general route of the lower antelope is longer, and the attractions are also richer. One of the characteristics is that one of the attractions in the park is a built-in tablecloth shooting point of Microsoft (below)|
|Tour time in the park||An hour or so||About an hour (but long queues before entering the park, etc.)|
|Ticket price comparison||75 / person||55 / person|
The Upper Antelope Valley can be imagined from the name of the VIP group, attracting more people to see, so the light ticket is more expensive than the lower antelope 20 block / person. And because the Upper Antelope Valley is more popular, tickets are usually sold out a few weeks ago. If you need to book, please check in early, especially during the summer vacation.
