Occupied about 1000 years ago--can access it by a hiking trail, descending 600 feet into the canyon--or visit it on a jeep tour with a Navajo guide!

This is at the bottom of the Canyon and very well preserved ruins of the Pueblo people. Do the walk in the morning or late afternoon and take water as there is no water in the Canyon

The hike is well, worth it, and the ruins give you a glimpse into the past history of the canyon and it’s people. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

Take the Beauty Way Jeep tour to get the full and complete history of all of the ruins. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable as he lived in the Canyon as a young boy.

White House Ruin is the largest structure in Canyon de Chelley but it is not nearly as well known as similar sites across the Southwest. That is precisely why i like it. Also, a dirty little secret of the park service is that the more...More

You can view this from the overlook with binoculars & zoom camera or you can hike through the base of the canyon with a guide. It's well worth looking at either way.

From the bottom of the canyon, one is too far away from the ruin to see much. Further, I didn't see any additional information about the site. It was a long climb and hike without much payoff. If the ruin is what you are interested...More
