    Vipul Kapadia reviewed Indian Garden via Bright Angel Trail

    6 months ago

    Approximate time:
    ~ 3 hours going down
    ~ 4.5 hours coming up

    Word of advice:
    What goes down must come back up. What looks easy going down ain't so easy when you have to climb 3000 feet up. You should have good fitness. Start your trip early in the day like 6-7 AM and you will be at Indian Garden around 10 AM. Hang out there, walk around and enjoy your lunch. If you start again around noon, you should be up by 4:30 PM. I do not recommend doing this in summer.

    My experience:
    If this doesn't take your breath away, what will? When you walk through the walls of the canyon carved over 6 million of years with rocks as old as 2 billion years old, you would find yourself humbled. You witness one of the most surreal landscapes in the world. We got to do this again later in 2017 and found it equally appealing. Such is the beauty of the Grand Canyon that you would always find a reason to go back again.

    Recommendation:
    - stay overnight at the village so you can begin your hike early
    - hiking shoes
    - comfortable clothes with a light jacket
    - 2-3 liters of water
    - some salty snacks, protein bars, fruits, electrolytes
    - trekking poles (good for support)
    - toe nails cut (this is important)
    - last but not the least, a friend or two in your company

    Easy but beautiful trail. Lots of petroglyphs on your way. The waterfall is dry currently but when you reach that site, it’s just surreal.

    Make sure to stop at the Nature Center. I have not seen a library in a location like this. If you get tired reading a book, just look outside and the surrounding will take your breath away.

    Beautiful hike. Lot's people but that is a good thing as you feel safer. Took the tram to save time.
