Good hike, cheeted and had the mules carry our stuff. Amazing vews.
The hike can be brutal so make sure you not only have all of your gear, but you’re prepared to hike when it’s dark to avoid the heat. Headlamps, waking sticks, and water are a must, in my opinion. Mules will take your heavier gear down (you must have a permit to do this and previous reservations). Once you make it, your tiredness and pain from the hike will instantly disappear when you see the views and get inside of that turquoise water. Everything about Havasu Falls is breathtaking and worth the work. To access other waterfalls prepare yourself for some treacherous descents down a nearly vertical wall. Safety here and awareness is a must, but other than that, this place is dreamy.
Must make reservations a year in advanced you hike in not an easy trail. Only open certain parts of the year. Camp Out only WORTH THE HIKE YOULL NEVER SEE ANYTHING THIS Beautiful !
Obviously this is worth all the blood, sweat and tears getting here. The tribe was so kind, the village was cute, and the waterfalls were amazing. If you're lucky enough to get tickets, GO.
I have gone every year for the past few years and I am never disappointed. it's a 10 mile trek from the car down the canyon and through the town to get to the campgrounds. the campsites are not numbered, you pick a spot that looks ideal and set up camp. snagging a permit is the hard part, February 1 all the spots go up for sale which is now an online system which makes it easier than previous years. they sell out within the first hour or so. monsoon season is june-august so I would avoid going after July because flash floods can be deadly. you have a few options for getting there from the car, you can hike or take the helicopter which only runs on certain days. there is a fresh spring to collect water so no need to bring it for your whole trip although its ideal to bring a water filter system. the falls themselves are absolutely beautiful, there is a series of them from 50foot falls all the way to beaver falls which is miles down the trail. havasu seems to be the most popular one to hangout since beaver is a long trek from the campground and has several water crossings. this is bucket list material and I hope that everyone gets a chance to visit this beautiful land.
This campsite is very spacious with quite a few options to set up camp. Each spot is far enough from your neighbor and has its own picnic table. Some spots are along the water which is really nice if you want to take a quick dip when it’s hot. Plenty of trees for hammocks. Site has water that comes from the spring and is drinkable. Restrooms are nice and clean. The hike to the campground is brutal but definitely worth it when you get close to the campground and see all the waterfalls.
This is beautiful, unforgettable place in the grand canyon owned by the havasupai tribe. Online reservations for the campground for the year begin feb 1st and sell out quickly. From the trailhead it is 8 miles to the village where you check in, and 2 more miles through sand to the camp grounds. No water is available between the hilltop and the village so bring enough for the hike down. The village has a couple stores and cafe's where food can be bought. There are 5 beautiful waterfalls that can be hiked to and viewed in the area. Two (little navajo and 50 ft. falls) are inbetween the village and the campground. The most famous of the 5, havasu falls is right before the campground. Mooney falls is at the end of the campground. It can be viewed from the top or you can go through a couple tunnels, scale down laders and chains and see it from the bottom. This part is not for the faint of heart. I would recomend three points of contact and gloves. The ladders and chains are slippery, muddy and wet from the water fall. If you are able to brave going down, past mooney falls are multipule paths and river crossings that will take you to the last waterfall which is beaver falls. It is about 3-4 miles past mooney depending on which path you take. The campground is a mile long. it is very primitive. No campfires aloud. They do offer a few self composting bathrooms. There is a fresh water spring that comes out of the side of the cliff towards the beginning of the campground. It has good clean water to use while in the campground or to fill up conainers with before any day hikes. The campground is a free for all with picking a spot. There are a couple spots that the tour groups like to use, but other then that you just find a spot you like and set up. Some spots have picnic table and there are lots of trees for hammocks. This is a amazing area to visit and you will not be disappointed. If you would like more information about resevations or the area the tribes website is: http://theofficialhavasupaitribe.com
This is a test of ones ability, it was hard, I won't lie, but well worth it. I would also say it is more mental than physical. We left about 4:30 am to hike into the canyon. The sites are first comes first serve, I recommend you go early. We also moved closer to the front of camp the second night. The bathrooms were great considering what it was. Campsites have a table. Many trees to hang hammocks. Fresh water spring as you enter the campground. Waterfalls are amazing.
Getting to havasu falls takes some planning. Its roughly 10 miles down a dry hot canyon to get to these stunning falls. It also requires permits. Once into the camp ground there is a spring with water to keep your bottles, camelbaks etc filled. There are multiple compostable toilets. No showers or sinks. In the town of supai a couple miles from the campground there is a general store. Must pack out EVERYTHING you pack in. Be reapectful. Exploring is endless once your at the falls. The hike out is a bit more strenuous as it is up hill the last mile or two to get back to the hilltop parking lot
Havasu Falls is an amazing place! The campground is a mile long with sites being first come first served. A permit issued by the tribe is required to camp. There is potable water near the beginning of the campground and 4 sets of composting toilets scattered the length. Campsites are on both sides of the creek with small footbridges to cross back and forth. If you need multiple hammock spots and tent spots for your group those sites are harder to find. If you have all tents it will be easier to stay together as a group.
