Nothing can prepare you for the mind-blowing beauty of Havasu Falls. Its crystal clear blue-green waters and its gushing falls create a peaceful retreat from the harsh desert that covers most parts of the Grand Canyon.
The hidden gem of the Grand Canyon can be found inside Havasupai Indian Reservation which is located in a remote region of the South Tim. Havasu is just one of the five waterfalls that can be found in the Havasupai Indian Reservation, but it is the most stunning with its 100-foot waterfall gushing from a side canyon of the Havasu Canyon.
It’s not easy to get to Havasu Falls. Unless you are willing to hike ten miles to the Indian Reservation, this attraction is left for the hardcore outdoor people. The challenging hike starts from the Hualapai Hilltop and ends at the campgrounds within Havasupai Indian Reservation.
The surroundings and wildlife of Havasupai is different from the rest of the South Rim. As water can be found everywhere, the village provides shade to those who want to escape the heat of the desert.
Before you can gain access to Havasu Falls, you need to secure permits first. As more people are becoming aware of its unspoiled beauty, you need to book your campsite slot a few weeks in advance. The Indian Reservation only allows guests entry if they are to stay overnight. For those who do not have camping gear, booking a room in the lodge is an alternative.
The entrance fee to Havasupai Indian Reservation is 35USD, whilst environment fee will set you back 5USD. The reservation for a slot in the campgrounds is set at 17USD per night/per person. As supplies are scarce in this community, come prepared with the necessary essentials such as tent, water, food, and clothing.
