There are numerous slot canyons near Page, Arizona including Upper and Lower Antelope Canyons. While both canyons are indeed spectacular, they are also spectacularly crowded. The Antelope Canyon tours are almost always booked to capacity, the result being that you’re literally shoulder to shoulder with hundreds of other gawking tourists. I know because I’ve been a gawking tourist at Upper Antelope twice and Lower Antelope a half dozen times. They are gorgeous but most photo compositions must be shot above the crowds unless you WANT the crowds in your photo or unless you pay a premium fee. The premium fee allows you to carry a tripod and the guide will stop other tours at various spots in the canyons while you compose your photo. At Mountain Sheep Canyon, there was just me, a friend, and our very friendly and knowledgeable Navajo guide. No one else. It was great! The short canyon was every bit as beautiful as the more famous canyons nearby.

Travel Information

Like many (most/all?) slot canyons near Page, Mountain Sheep Canyon is on Navajo land and you must pay a Navajo guide to take you to and through the canyon. I booked my tour through “Adventurous Antelope Canyon Tours” but there are probably other companies in the area that can get you there. I suggest you shop around because prices may vary.
Crowd Factor Nearly no other people
