Tsankawi Ruins at Bandelier National Monument

Thursday May 3, 2018

3:00pm – 7:00pm

Price: $130 per person (includes transportation)

Pick up Hilton Santa Fe Buffalo Thunder: 3:00pm
Arrival at Tsankawi at 3:30pm
Return to the Hilton at 7:00pm

Part of Bandelier National Monument, Tsankawi is located on a mesa with amazing views of the surrounding mountains. Tsankawi has numerous cave dwellings with remarkable petroglyphs along the cliff walls. The trails here are more rugged than at the main park – you’ll walk along ancient footpaths without rail guards and concrete steps. For the adventurous hikers, there are options to explore beyond the mesa loop, off the beaten path to secluded caves and rarely seen petroglyphs.

Please note that although portions of the area are an easy walk, there are some ladders and ancient steps to navigate.
