Often called the "Shangri-la of the Grand Canyon," visitors can hike, camp or just soak up the sun around these beautiful falls where rushing water spills from red cliffs into brilliant aquamarine pools.

I did A LOT of research prior to my trip to Havasupai and I am glad I did. We were a group of 7 and stayed 3 nights camping. Some tips and tricks! 1. Get a permit. The hike is 10 miles in and if you are going on a weekend, they may not have space for you to camp.... More

Making a reservation/sneaking in: We had been calling and calling for days to make a reservation for the campground, most of the time we didn't get through or they just didn't pick up the phone. When they finally did pick up, they told us they were fully booked for the 3 days we had in mind, eventhough reservations were just... More

I am probably the least active person I know. I did not go on too many hikes to prepare myself - in the end I can say I under estimated the hike BUT I survived. We started our hike down with all our gear at 630am and took us about 6hours to reach the campsite - there were plenty of... More

It is hard to get reservations here so plan in advance. Hike is tough and long, especially with a full pack. Bring water and electrolyte. If you get cold suggest a shortie wet suit which extends your time to play in the water. Recommend water shoes with closed toe. Potable water available in the village near check in and in... More

Definitely a bucket list item, however you need to know exactly what to expect. Don't get me wrong: we loved it. That stated, here are a few gotchas. Guide - We used Wildland Trekking (Dakota was our guide) and were happy with the service. If you can get a permit, you are way smarter than me. We tried for days... More

I hiked the Havasu Falls trail with a group of friends on a 3 day 2 night camping, guided tour booked through Wildland Trekking. It was my first, but not my last, trip to the Grand Canyon and I loved it! Wildland Trekking provided transportation from our hotel in Flagstaff, which was about a 3 hour drive. They also provided...

This is a very interesting side of the Grand Canyon filled with culture, beauty and adventure. We found the supai people friendly, but cautious. Many provisions can be purchased at a premium price at the supai general store. No souvenir tshirts found. Flatbread sold by corral was a treat. We drank the spring water flowing from pvc pipe out of... More

We hiked with friends to Havasupai Falls this past weekend. We left the trailhead around 7:45 am, carrying 20-30 pounds each on our backs. In hindsight, a mule may have been a better idea! Following the steep downhill climb from the trailhead, it is a gradual downward gradient, so not difficult. We reached the village around 11:30am and stopped for... More

We started our hike at the Hilltop. It's about 10 miles until check in. I recommend hiking in around dusk. Once at check in it's about 3 miles to the campgrounds. Such a gorgeous place. We took the helicopter out. The helicopter is first come first serve so the wait was a little long. Definitely worth it!

August 2016 Recommendations Hike in early Plenty of water and electrolytes Water shoes Orange buckets (ask for them at the camp office) critters have become very forward. Watch for squirles on your day hikes or if you leave them by a waterfall, etc. Be respectful and don't leave trash out in the wild
