NileGuide Expert Says:
This tropical paradise in the heart of the Grand Canyon is a strenuous day hike in. And reservations must be made months in advance. This is easily the most beautiful spot in the Grand Canyon.
NileGuide Expert tip:
NOTE: Due to severe damage sustained during floods in October 2010, Havasu Canyon has been closed indefinitely. Check website for updates.
- Hike down to the famed blue green waterfalls, home of the Havasupai people who have called the Grand Canyon home for the last 800 years. Or take a mule, or take a helicopter! Camp or stay at the lodge located in the village of Supai. After a beautiful but strenuous 8 mile hike to the Village of Supai from Hualapai Hilltop, visitors can validate their reservations for the campgrounds, and from there it is a beautiful 2-mile hike next to the water. Passing Navajo Falls, a series of rippling waterfalls that feed a wide stretch of canyon, the campgrounds are nestled at the bottom, right after passing the wide-mouthed Havasu Falls. After a long day of hiking, it may seem temping to pitch a tent at the first empty campsite you see, however, there are some great places further down the trail that are even better! Another mile or two down the trail will lead you to the top of the majestic Mooney Falls, which drop 210 feet to the bottom. There is a trail that will lead hikers down a very scary, yet exciting rock corridor where hikers must rely on chains, ladders, and metal stakes driven into the Travertine rock. Beaver Falls, are located 3 or 4 miles from the bottom of Mooney Falls. Eventually the trail hit the Colorado River. The fee to visit is $35 per person and another $17 per person/ per night for the campgrounds.
