It is accessible via hiking a 1.5-mile (2.4 km) round trip making it suited for every kind of hiker. After around 30 mins you will reach the spot to see the charisma of the most photographed place.

It is one of those natural wonders that was carved out over million of years by the waters of the Colorado River as it made its way down through Grand Canyon.
