Bandelier National Monument Tours

Bandelier National Monument in New Mexico includes ancient pueblo buildings as well as vast areas of wilderness and lots of hiking trails. The whole area covers 50 square miles, most of which remain the natural landscape, including the Rio Grande and the Jemez Mountains. The main attractions at Bandelier, however, are the ruins of the ancient people who once lived there.

There are several ancient homes, as well as rock paintings and petroglyphs, both near the modern ground level of the canyon and some further up the rock wall. The ruins and markings date from the 12th through 17th century, though there is evidence that people inhabited the area more than 10,000 years ago.

Practical Info

Bandelier National Monument is open daily year-round from dawn to dusk. The visitor center hours vary by season, and the park hours may vary during inclement weather. There is a $12 vehicle entry fee, which includes everyone riding in the vehicle, or $6 per person for anyone walking or cycling into the monument. There are fees to camp at the two campgrounds inside the monument – reservations are required for one, and not possible for the other.
