One of the wonders of the world
There isn’t another place which would intrigue and surprise you as much as the Grand Canyon. The visual effect created by the immensity and beauty of the region is what attracts so many visitors to the park. Here the world seems bigger. Storms, sunsets and sunrises seem more impressive. Here one will stop, be quiet for a while, contemplate and become meek and mild.
No matter when you go, what time of the day, the canyon looks different. From hour to hour, from sunrise to sunset, the vast shapes and always changing colours of the Grand Canyon’s wilderness of rocks interact with the eyes of the tourists.
Many lucky people, staying for more than a day at the Grand Canyon’s site, enjoy the light show of millions twinkling stars making their appearance and adding to the indescribable beauty of the far reaches of the canyon at a full moon.
In March 2007 one of the greatest tourist attractions at the Grand Canyon was opened – Skywalk. It is situated on the West Rim, along the Colorado River, on the edge of the canyon.
Grand Canyon Skywalk is a horseshoe shaped glass walkway. With it’s height of 1,200-meters (4,000 ft) above the floor of the canyon, it exceeds the height of the world`s largest skyscrapers. For more information, and tours, please visit the Grand Canyon Skywalk section.
