Went with the first shuttle bus to catch the sunrise. Beautiful view of the canyon and not a lot of people. Highly recommended!

This is my favorite spot for taking photos at sunrise or sunset. The colors are the best here. Be sure to shot your pictures from both directions to get all the colors.

I would highly recommend that you take the hike trail to Ooh Aah point, is a really nice walk and the view is breathtaking. If you like, you can hike further down the canyon.

We went there early enough (what was very hard thanks to jetlag!) to watch the sunrise and it was sooooo worth waking up early!

If you are in a hurry, this is not too far from the village and Mather Point. It has decent parking and great views.

This is the place you want to be to watch the sunrise. Catch a shuttle and the driver will ensure you get to the right place. Sunrise and sunset times can be found in hotel room info. It's early but get up and do it....More

This is a great spot to see the canyon. This view, like just about every other view is awe inspiring and should be on your list of places to stop at on your Grand Canyon tour.

Yaki Point is along Desert View Drive, and is the eastern-most stop made by the orange shuttle line. It is not open to individual cars. I think taking the shuttle is easiest, though you could also use the park's taxi... More
