The Grand Canyon: National Monument, National Park and World Heritage Site

Date: 2014-09-24 · Category: USA

The Grand Canyon is geologically considered to be a variant of a history book of the United States

More than a billion years can be traced on the steep walls. Numerous rocks of marine origin or former desert landscapes have created the colors and shapes. The Colorado River, which meanders through the canyon, has dug deeper and deeper into the Colorado Plateau. The Grand Canyon is one of the great natural wonders and has turned into one of the most popular attractions and photo motives.

In 1908 the Grand Canyon was named “National Monument”. Since 1919 it is an acknowledged “National Park” and stands under natural conservation. Since 1979, the Grand Canyon is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Every year five million visitors are currently listed – who have been offered more and more additional attractions over the years. In to addition to hiking, boating and the Skywalk, especially the helicopter flights in the canyon are a highlight. Flying close to the rock canyons can guarantee goose bumps.

The participants of the guided Reuthers tours can also have this feeling because the helicopter flight is part of the Grand Canyon visit.
