If you are looking for a fun experience and like the idea of exploring a narrow canyon, then Lower Antelope Canyon gets our vote. To book the Antelope Canyon Lower tour with deals in this season. To avoid the worst of the crowds, visit this canyon early or later in the day, if you don’t mind missing out on the ideal lighting.
Features about the Lower Antelope Canyon:
One big reason why people shy away from Lower Antelope Canyon is the stairs. They’re honestly not a big deal, though. If you are mobile and don’t have problems with stairs in everyday life, these won’t trip you up. Don’t worry about them being treacherous. This would really only be an issue for the elderly or those who have mobility limitations.
No light beams
It is rare to see the light beams in Lower Antelope Canyon that have made Upper Antelope so famous. The light still does get through and make the walls glow, but you won’t get those iconic beams shining through to the ground.
Most of the photos you have seen of sand falling to the ground were probably also taken in upper rather than lower antelope Canyon. In upper they regularly threw up sand so that we could see it reflected by the light, but in lower they said that they did not want to create dust. I suspect that on the photography tour in lower that they do throw some dust on the walls to photograph. I don’t know that for sure, though.
