Navajo National Monument comprises three non-contiguous monuments all located within the Navajo Nation in Northeastern Arizona. Each protects an Ancestral Pueblo cliff dwelling tree-ring dated to the late 13th century. Betatakin and Kiet Seel are open for visitation during the summer (late May to early September). Inscription House is closed to the public, due to its fragility.
There are three self-guided rim trails. Tours of Betatakin are offered twice per morning, maximum 25 hikers per tour. Kiet Seel tours are available by making advance reservation; only 20 hikers per day are allowed. Call 928-672-2700.
Two free campgrounds are also available on a first-come basis.
