I was with a rafting tour on the Colorado in early June 2016. The guides stopped at Havasu Canyon. We hiked about 1.5 mile to beautiful turquoise pools. The place is spectacular. The guides mention the water is light blue from calcium carbonate upstream. We were able to stay in the pools for about an hour before heading back.

This was my 5th trip to HavaSupai but it was my Birthday so why not wake up and be 60 years old in World Class sight. From what I understand it going to be every 5 years to go back from here on. I backpacked my gear this time but might do the mules next time. Will see! Great Hike.

Amazing side hike while rafting the canyon with AZRA. This is a daylong hike from the mouth of them canyon. Popular with rafters so you can go as deep into Havasu as you want.

This was my 5th backpack trip in the Grand Canyon, but my first in Havasu Canyon. You will see raves about the place and I can't add a superlative you haven't already seen. The place is an oasis and garden of eden all in one. Just goes to show what you get when you pour water on a desert. Beautiful!... More

I visited the bottom of the Grand Canyon via the Bright Angel trail from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon last year and wanted to see a different part of the Grand this time. And from all the trip reports and pictures I've seen of this place, the waterfalls seem to be the main attraction. That was not the... More

I'm not that used to Tripadvisor, so spent considerable time on a review of Havasupai Falls. I didn't know I had only one chance to put photos up. So I'm using this review to add some more. If you're familiar with Havasu Falls, the flood made big changes to the landscape. Standing at the edge of the Big Gully between... More

The falls are absolutely amazing, the town is horrible. Hundreds of stray dogs, even horses, port-o-potties completely filled (yes it's as disgusting as it sounds). If you can looks past the town and the way the Indians live and treat the land it's a beautiful place!

Got an early start at the Hualapai Hilltop. My girlfriend and I spent the night before at the Grand Canyon Caverns Inn a 63 mile drive from the hilltop. With the early start we avoided the heat and carried the recommend amount of water for the hike.( 5 litres one way) Even though the hike was not as hot as... More

This is the best part of the grand canyon!! We visited in May 2003. The hike was not as bad as we had imagined. The hardest part is walking in the deep sand in the village. I cannot describe exactly how I felt when I came around the bend and saw Havasu Falls!! I was overtaken by its beauty. The... More
