Point Imperial

Grand Canyon, Arizona

When you first stand at Point Imperial to take in the sight, you might want to have someone nearby—it’s the kind of view for which the Grand Canyon is famous, the kind that can make you dizzy with awe. At 8,803 feet, Point Imperial is the highest vista point in the park, and its view of the Vermillion Cliffs, the Painted Desert, and the Colorado River canyon is the sort of rapturous thing that has made The Grand Canyon one of the most popular tourist attractions in the world. Take it all in, but please hold on.
