Grand Canyon NP


Sunrise & Sunset

There's not one single point but instead many with different views and every visitor has diffferent expectations and preferences.

  • Hopi Point is a desirable viewpoint for sunset, it attracts crowds of people and buses, especially in the summer.
  • Yaki and Pima Points offer spectacular views of the canyon, are less congested, and may allow you to hear the sound of the Colorado River a mile below!
  • Mohave, Navajo, and Desert View are offering great east and west panoramas
  • Lipan Point, near Desert View, offers incredible views of the canyon with the San Francisco Peaks to the south, the distant Painted Desert, and extensive stretches of the river below.
  • For a memorable sunrise, try Mather or Yaki Points.

Editorial Note: Many people we spoke to rember Mather Point on the South Rim is the best spot to watch a sunrise in the Grand Canyon, but again, that's personal preference.
