Wupatki Pueblo is the largest pueblo in Wupatki National Monument. The pueblo contained more than 100 rooms, a community room or kiva, and a ballcourt. This virtual trail guide mimics the paper trail guide and benchmarks you would experience in person when walking the trail at Wupatki Pueblo. The text derives directly from the Wupatki Pueblo Trail Guide currently used by the National Park Service at Wupatki National Monument.
Knowledgeable Hopis feel the proper place name for this area in Nuvaovi (the place of the snow) and the site known today as Wukoki was Wupatki.
