Hiking there needs a permit so one needs to win the walk in lottery if not lucky obtaining the permit online. The hike wasn’t too hard, just that it was in Aug and the weather was scotching hot after 11am. Great views during the hike and was well worth it when you reach The Wave.

This is one of the natural wonder in the world. A must see but, you have to be lucky enough o win the lottery to see this place. The lottery is held at the Kanab BLM office, the office is located within walking distance of our house.

Requires a permit from BLM, which is not easy to get (lottery most of the times)

The Wave is a spectacular geologic formation, located 35 minutes from Page, AZ. Permits are required, so make sure and plan ahead.

Awesome but such a popular place. Best to make reservations at least 1 year in advance.

Wind and rain have worked their magic, eroding lines that swoop and swirl across the sandstone formation. The result, which resembles a cresting wave, is one of the most photographed—if not easy to reach—spots in the American West. A permit is required to make the unmarked hike to the Wave, and only 20 are given out daily. It’s almost easier to make the journey to southwest Australia to see the Wave’s down under counterpart, Wave Rock.
