most developed area of Grand Canyon National Park, the South Rim offers amenities such as bus service, hotels and water stations, but is also more crowded than the North Rim.
The Grand Canyon has several routes to play in the south, north and west. The north is relatively remote, and the west is a lot of one-day tours, with glass planks, and the south rim is full of self-service tourists. You can stay in Tusayan for one night and then the next day Spend a whole day playing here slowly. You can park your car in the nearby free parking lot, and then take the free sightseeing car in the scenic spot. The sightseeing car will stop at each sightseeing spot until the end point, so you can choose to get off the car and walk for a short distance. After reading it, wait for the next bus to take you to the next point, or you can choose to walk to the next point on foot. In short, it is very convenient. Pay attention to sun protection and bring enough water and dry food. There are no shops or vendors selling things along the way. There is only one at the end.
The southern part of the Grand Canyon in the United States does not have a spectacular view. The advantage of the tour is that it can be very worry-free for those who are in the Grand Canyon for the first time. There is an observation deck here, which is said to be a former aboriginal residence. Now it has become a place to sell souvenirs. I heard that the helicopter tour is also a good experience, you can make an appointment in advance.
stunning landscape and views ! very scenic spot for photos and just simply enjoy the spectacular view of the Grand Canyon
Those who like to see the beauty of the Grand Canyon up close and savor carefully can choose to hike; if you want to experience the spectacular scenery overlooking the landscape, you can choose to take a helicopter. For the first time to visit the Grand Canyon, and friends who have never taken a helicopter can give it a try, absolutely unforgettable. It is also necessary to book in advance to take a helicopter. We took a helicopter to visit the South Canyon (the helicopter is a self-funded project, although it is quite expensive, I think it is worth the ride). Before boarding an airplane, you must first weigh your weight. The seats on the airplane are allocated according to your weight. A helicopter can only seat 6 people. Large items such as bags are not allowed on the plane, I just took the camera and mobile phone on the plane. The entire flight time is about half an hour.
Before taking the plane, the first thing to watch is a safety education video, and everyone wears a life jacket. Then assign number plates according to the weight just weighed, and arrange sitting positions according to the number plates.
For the first time, I discovered the benefits of being thin and light, that is, you can sit on the nose of the machine, have close contact with the captain, and you can directly watch the scenery directly in front of you. I put on the headset and asked where we are. I replied that it was China. He tuned the channel in the headset to a Chinese commentary, listening to the commentary and slowly watching the Grand Canyon. If there is a problem, you can talk to each other through the microphone.
