HAVASUPAI FALLS

The trip to Havisupai Falls in the Havisupai Canyon is not for the faint hearted. Visiting this beautiful landscape requires a 10+ mile hike into the canyon and reservations at either the Havasupai Lodge in Supai Village or the Havasupai Falls primitive campground. No day hiking is allowed, so you must reserve at least one night at the Havasupai Lodge or at least three nights camping. If you get a chance to brave this adventure, Havasupai Falls is a pristine oasis in the desert that few get the chance to experience. Below are the instructions for a DIY trip to Havasupai Falls, but if you’d rather have someone else do the logisitics work, we recommend booking with Wildland Trekking Havasupai Tour.

BOOK YOUR TRIP
Reserve your spot at the Havasupai Campground or book a room at the Havasupai Lodge. Spots fill up very quickly, often a year in advance, so reserve early.
GETTING TO SUPAI VILLAGE
There are no roads to Supai Village and tourists have two options: hike in or take a helicopter. The hike into Supai Village is around 8 miles, and is a fairly simple hike. The Lodge is located in Supai Village but the campgrounds are an additional two mile hike from the village. Alternatively, helicopter rides are available to Supai Village for $85 per person, one-way. Make sure that you check into your campground or lodge before hiking to the falls and get your wristband that shows you are a valid permit holder. Rangers will check for your permit throughout your stay.
GETTING TO THE FALLS
There are multiple waterfalls in the canyon that tourists can visit. When you check in, you should get a map of the local area with information on hiking to the waterfalls in the area: Navajo Falls, Havasu Falls, Mooney Falls, and Beaver Falls.
LEAVING THE VILLAGE
You leave Supai Village the same way that you came in. That means that the easy downhill slope hike on the way into the canyon turns into a mile long, uphill hike out. Make sure that you are prepared with a full gallon of water for the hike, or opt for the helicopter ride out.
