|About these ratings|
Lauded by travelers as one of the most beautiful sights in the Grand Canyon, the Havasu Falls is a desert oasis, complete with crystal blue waterways and gushing falls that add an almost surreal quality to the dry canyon backdrop. The falls lie just south of the national park in the Havasupai Indian Reservation. To get there you must hike about 10 miles, beginning at the Hualapai Hilltop. Facilities are scarce, with just a large parking area and a few portable toilets.
Don't try Havasu Falls if you don't plan on spending the night camping. The initial hike to the waterway is far too strenuous to complete in one day.
After you've visited the falls, stop by the village of Supai, where the Havasupai Indians sell souvenirs and snacks. However, be aware that -- because this community's economy depends on tourism -- prices here are exceptionally high.
