A hidden jewel at Java’s centre Amanjiwo rests in the shadows of the largest Buddhist temple complex in the world, Borobudur, which reopens to visitors from 1 March 2023.
With sweeping views of stratified rock formations and towering mesas, and the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument looming in the distance, Amangiri sits in the heart of 600 wild acres of protected valley – a scenic base for a multitude of outdoor adventures, including desert hikes, ridge-top horseback rides, and exhilarating climbing routes.
Invented centuries ago in the Italian Alps, a via ferrata (‘iron road’) is a series of cables and ladder rungs fixed onto rock face to enable the ascent of steep mountain routes. Amangiri has a range of these routes through the canyon landscape, catering to every level of ability and taste for adrenaline.
Amangiri’s various via ferrata each explore a different aspect of the landscape, offering a memorable adventure for every level of experience.
The Hoodoo Via Ferrata incorporates a narrow suspension bridge across a deep gorge; the Vertigo route presents a more physical challenge, and, for those willing to put in the effort, the Red Line Ridge ascent to the summit of Stud Horse Mesa rewards climbers with tremendous views.
For younger adventurers, the Canyon Crossing via ferrata has been designed to challenge and inspire the whole family, introducing children aged six and up to the skills they need to tackle the challenging terrain of the Colorado Plateau.
Launching straight from the resort at sunrise, hot-air balloon flights provide extraordinary views of Amangiri’s moon-like landscape, as well as a deep and memorable sense of tranquillity as the balloon drifts smoothly across the sky.
Fly by helicopter or fixed-wing plane to the Grand Canyon National Park and discover one of the deepest gorges on Earth with two billion years of history buried in its striking erosional forms and layers of geologic colour.
Camp Sarika invites the intrepid to discover this extraordinary landscape with a four-day itinerary that makes the most of the perspective-broadening adventure, spellbinding scenery and spiritual heritage of the region.
A day of guided hiking and rock climbing in the desert and mountains ends beside the campfire, admiring the stars.
The morning sees guests arrive on the 2,000-mile shoreline of Lake Powell – the vast reservoir renowned for its otherworldly beauty – to explore its rugged banks and hidden bays by stand-up paddleboard, kayak or boat.
