Antelope Canyon is a narrow canyon ("slot canyon") on Navajo land east of Page Page, Arizona , Arizona.

Antelope Canyon Antelope Canyon, Arizona includes two separate picturesque sections, the Antelope Canyon as such and the Upper Antelope Canyon.

The canyons have been eroded mainly by water which in heavy rushes through the canyon. The sand carried by the water adds to erosive force.

Like in some other canyons, flash floods can and have killed people. They can occur with no rain or clouds visible, rather caused by some thunderstorm even 15 miles upstream that dumps lots of water. Such flash floods can therefore come with no warning at all.

Antelope canyon can only be visited in guided tours.
