You should choose Shash DinAi?? only if you do not conceive adventure ‘to a certain extent’ and if you seriously wish to leave behind comfortable life and have a daring, but definitely unforgettable, tA?te-Ai??-tA?te with the extraordinary and extreme marvels of the Far West.Ai??A proper ranch with corrals, disused caravans, short little houses and a black pick-up truck that comes and goes raising red dust ai??i?? this is the charming and spartan prelude to Shash DinAi?? glamping. An extremely simple and extremely authentic glamping that lies on the red earth of Navajo Nation. Baya, a dinAi?? (‘the people’ in Navajo) born and raised on this land, Paul and their little daughter welcome you with smiles and warmth.Ai??A large family of dogs wag their tails at your arrival, goats and sheep move placidly among the short bushes, a white horse runs against the horizon behind the guests’ tents and it is such a spectacular sight that you cannot help but wonder if it was trained to do so.Ai??There are also a wooden veranda, a fireplace and the essentials to grill meat and potatoes. In the tents you will find the basics for the night ai??i?? a can of drinkable water, two surprisingly comfortable camp beds, sleeping bags, Navajo blankets, books and theme board games.
