I am often asked, I want to go to the western United States to see the natural western scenery of the United States, but how should the route be arranged?

I don’t know if you have noticed. In fact, most of the places worth visiting cannot bypass the city of Las Vegas. So, let’s take this city as the central axis and see how to play——From Las Vegas.

If you want to go to all the places on the map at once, the best route should be:

First go to Death Valley, back to Las Vegas, and then clockwise, take Zion National Park, clothLesCountry, Horseshoe Bend, Antelope Canyon, Grand Canyon National Park, and then back to Las Vegas after a circle.

Of course, you can also use Las Vegas as the basic point and mix freely.

Come see-

  1. Death Valley | Stargazing at night in the Badlands

Distance: 142 miles (228km)

Driving time: 2 hours 15 minutes

Suitable season: autumn and winter (October-April)

Play time + play points: 1-2 days, Dante’s view, the highest point of Death Valley, stargazing at night in Death Valley.

Death Valley is about a 2-hour drive from Las Vegas.

During the period, I have to drive on a road that can’t see the end and is desolate. The surroundings are silent and silent, passing over the neatly cut wasteland cliffs, and the gusts of wind whistling past…

It’s really like stepping on a road full of horrors all around.

Death Valley is unbearably hot in summer (the highest temperature on earth was recorded at 56.7 ℃), and the surrounding area is extremely desolate and barren. Animals and gold diggers in the 19th century lost their lives here. But since the U.S. government established a national park here, it has become a destination for countless people.

On the official website of Death Valley, four self-driving routes have been announced, namely: the fastest route, the best route, the relic route and the most scenic route;

The landscapes you see are also different: meadows, deserts, hills, cracked land…

Standing at the highest point of Dante’s view in Death Valley, there is a feeling of staring into the abyss.

Death Valley is very big, it is recommended to play for 1-2 days, you can stargazing overnight, it is like going to another planet!

  1. Zion National Park | Another possibility in the world

Distance: 160 miles (228km)

Driving time: 2 hours 30 minutes

Suitable season: summer and autumn (May-September)

Play time + play point: 1-2 days, standing on the canyon connecting bridge overlooking the Watcher Peak

Unlike other western national parks, Zion National Park has a different kind of softness wrapped under the roughness.

Due to its location at the junction of plateaus, basins, deserts and other areas, Zion National Park has peculiar landforms and rich biodiversity – as many as 289 species of birds, 75 species of mammals (including 19 species of bats), 32 species of Reptiles and countless species of plants inhabit the park’s four areas: desert, riparian, woodland and coniferous forests.

In Zion National Park, you can enter the bottom of Zion Canyon, meander through the narrow canyon, enjoy the scenery on the bottom and sides of the valley, the babbling streams, dense coniferous forests…

Although Zion National Park is not as well known as Yellowstone and the Grand Canyon, it is veryHow beautifulChinese people like the hiking routes with diverse landscapes here, so it is known as a “hiking paradise”.

  1. Bryce Canyon National Park | Huge years eroded stone pillars

Distance: 260 miles (418km)

Travel time: 4 hours

Suitable season: summer, autumn and winter (May-December)

Play time + play point: 3 hours – 1 day, the shock of sunset and sunrise; stargazing with naked eyes

People often confuse Bryce Canyon National Park with Grand Canyon National Park because of the distance, but in fact Bryce Canyon National Park, although called “the canyon”, is actually composed of thousands of years of erosion. Formed by stone pillars!

Looking around, it is spectacular.

Especially in winter, the snow can set off the maroon rocks even more bright red and beautiful.

And when night falls, it turns into an astronomical placeHobbythe heaven.

Under the dark and pollution-free night sky of the Bryce Grand Canyon, people can see more than 7,500 stars with the naked eye. It can be said that the universe is just overhead!

  1. Horseshoe Bend|Concave shape, test on the edge of the cliff

Distance: 281 miles (452km)

Driving time: 4 hours 30 minutes

Suitable season: summer and autumn (May-October)

Play time + play point: 2-3 hours, the best cliff observation point is concave shape.

From Las Vegas, it takes about 4 hours and 30 minutes to reach Horseshoe Bend.

After parking the car, it takes about 20 minutes to climb over a mountain before seeing the majestic canyon and U-shaped river in front of you.

This is not a scenic spot, there is no ticket, and the parking lot is free. It is completely wild and natural. On the cliff at the best observation point, there is not even a guardrail.

If you want to take a **** photo, you have to walk the devil’s pace and carefully test on the edge of the cliff. Of course, the rock here is very hard and flat, so there is usually no problem.

So a group of actors played here:

  1. Antelope Canyon|The magical place of ever-changing light

Distance: 281 miles (452km)

Driving time: 4 hours 30 minutes

Suitable season: summer and autumn (April-September)

Play time + play points: 2-3 hours, the upper antelope changes light beams, and the lower antelope has a large scenery.

Antelope Canyon is very close to Horseshoe Bend, so the two can be played together!

In fact, the Antelope Canyon is also divided into the Upper Antelope Canyon and the Lower Antelope Canyon. Generally, what we call “Upper Antelope Canyon“, it is hotter here, and there are more unpredictable light beams from April to September. Hard to book!

The structure of the Upper Antelope Canyon is narrow at the top and wide at the bottom. When the sun is high enough from April to September every year, the light at noon will form a beam of light through a certain position on the top slit, just like God cast a light on the people in the cave.

The Lower Antelope Canyon needs to climb a few iron rope stairs , which is not suitable for the elderly and children, but because of this, there are few tourists here, there is plenty of light, and there is another type of beauty, which is very suitable for shooting large scenery.

  1. Grand Canyon National Park | Can’t tell the difference between Xixia and Nanxia?
    Distance: South Gorge 253 miles (407km); West Gorge 125 miles (201km)

From Las Vegas,

It takes 2 hours and 25 minutes to reach Xixia and 4.5 hours to reach Nanxia.

The South Gorge is what we have always called the Grand Canyon National Park .

There are many scenic spots and hiking routes in the Grand Canyon National Park. There are 4 play routes in the park, namely: Hidden Living Road, Village Line, Kaibab Trail and Desert Landscape Route Map.

In it, playing for the last 1-2 days is no problem.

The West Gorge belongs to the Indian Reserve and is not within the Grand Canyon National Park . The most famous scenic spot is the glass trail in the air.

Of course, there are 3 ways to play in the Xixia, sea, land and air, which can also make you happy!

Sea: Cruise to enjoy the West Gorge. This is usually associated with a helicopter. After flying over the Grand Canyon, it landed deep in the bottom of the valley, and looked up at the rocks on both sides of the river bank for hundreds of millions of years from the gurgling stream.

Air: Helicopter flying over the Grand Canyon. When you are in the sky above the majestic and majestic Grand Canyon, the shock will be unforgettable for a lifetime!
