Where is Vermilion Cliffs National Monument?
This region, which was totally unknown until a few years ago, was elevated to a national Monument of more than 1,000 km2 under President Bill Clinton on November 9, 2000.
For many decades, the whole area was considered an insider tip because of the spectacular rock formations, the narrow Canyons and also the adventurous conditions. Again and again photos appeared on which these “manuscripts of the Earth’s history” were depicted – but never described so precisely that one knew as a Tourist where this wondrous landscape was actually located. Despite the establishment of the National Monument, there are very few signposts and markers. And this is likely to continue. Other tourist facilities are not planned. Therefore, this area is ideal for self-discovery.
The multicolored wilderness of Paria Canyon – Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness runs through northeastern Arizona along the spectacular Vermilion Cliffs and winds northwest along Paria Canyon. A small part of the National Monument reaches to Utah. The Paria Canyon is considered one of the world’s best backpacker destinations for Canyon hikes. Towering walls are covered by strips that look like varnished. Gorges meander so closely together that the sky only shines through a thin, blue ribbon from above.
