There are many viewpoints from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon on the Arizona side or south rim. Some are reached from the South entrance, others on the west side in the Navajo Reservation. Some of our favorite view points are, from anywhere along Hermit Road to Hermit Rest, like pima, mariopa, hopi, or views from various areas and Yaki which can only be accessed by bus.
Then there are the major viewpoints like Mather, and Yavapai, which are must see locations. Probably at least 90% of visitors go there so they can be crowded
Less crowded locations, with fantastic views are Guano, Lapin, Moron, Navajo, and Desert View. Most all of the viewpoints have views of the Colorado river, but some of the best have no view of the river or very restricted one. Maps of the park show some of the areas that you would like other than Mather and Yavapai. Peaks that are prominent such as Isis Temple, Thor, Zoroaster, and views of the Abyss. There are also many trail heads along the south rim where you can walk down a ways (take plenty of water) or even all the way to the river.
For thousands of years, the Grand Canyon has been continuously inhabited by Native Americans who built settlements within the canyon and its many caves. The Pueblo people considered the Grand Canyon a holy site and made pilgrimages to it. The first European known to have viewed the Grand Canyon was Garca Lpez de Crdenas from Spain, who arrived in 1540
