Grand Canyon

Bright Angel Hike Trail the famous spot in the park for hiking and surely a treat to the hikers out there. A shuttle bus from the village will take you to the destination. The complete trip is almost 19 miles and will take 2 days to cover the entire area on foot, so the hikers often walk down in a short distance. But let me warn you, the hiking trail is not suited for anyone with a serious fear of heights. It’s ideal for beginners who would want more of experience in hiking and less of a jolly good ride.
