In the West Sedona hills, the consecrated Buddhist shrine of Amitabha Stupa can be admired, which is set quite spectacularly amid juniper stunningly and piñon. Further down there is another smaller stupa as well.

Palatki Heritage Site
The cliff dwellings in Sinagua and the rock art there are 1000 years old, which is an ideal reason to tread upon the 9-mile long dirt road that leads up to this charmingly located archaeological site.

Archaeology buffs would definitely want to explore the Honanki Ruins by traveling 3 miles towards the north.

The Vortexes
It is quite common to hear about vortexes when in Sedona, but many travellers who pay a visit to the city do not exactly know what they are. They are actually cyclones of energy coming directly from the earth and anyone within the vicinity of these vortexes gets to feel that energy. Uniquely shaped rock formations are also present there, which according to the locals apparently emit energy. Sedona has four primary vortexes, each of which emits its own unique energy.

Verde Valley Wine Trail

However, Sedona is home two Verde Valley where access to water and dry climate are offered, two essential conditions that are required for grapes to thrive. Thus, for wine lovers, following the Verde Valley Wine Trail is something they would not want to miss. They can visit four of the most popular wineries in the area and sample some locally made wine at each of the five tasting cellars.
