Overview

Dating back to 1100 CE, these well-preserved Anasazi cliff dwellings are a must visit for anyone interested in history and ancient cultures. The dwellings feature over 40 rooms, including a revered ceremonial kiva. All the tours are self-guided and require some ladder and stair climbing to enter the structures. Two on-site museums, which feature Anasazi artifacts, offer sharp insight on the how, where, when and why of this cliff-dwelling culture. Visit from June to August and witness traditional Indian dancers.
