Angel’s Landing In Utah’s Zion National Park Really Is Like Hiking In Heaven

If you have visited Zion National Park, you probably saw (or even hiked) Angel’s Landing. If you haven’t been to Zion yet, you would probably still recognize this iconic rock from photos. The march to the peak isn’t for the faint hearted; it’s only 2.4 miles long, but includes 21 narrow switchbacks and climbs more than 1,000 feet in elevation. It isn’t easy, but the view from the top is absolutely heavenly.

This stunning video, shot and shared on YouTube by Amazing Places on Our Planet, shows off Angel’s Landing, as well as another famous spot to explore in the park – The Virgin Narrows. This hike leads you along the Virgin River and through an incredible slot canyon. The majority of this 3.6-mile-long hike is actually done in the river, as the canyon is so narrow that the Virgin River flows wall-to-wall. The Narrows is considered one of the best hikes in the United States. Both of these beautiful hikes are so incredibly otherworldly that you may think you’ve died and gone to heaven.
