It seems that a lot of people don't know that there are actually 5 awesome waterfalls in the Havasu Falls canyon area. They are all in pretty relatively short distance of each other, and each provides their own unique beauty and tranquility. I enjoyed relaxing...More

Just a little bit scary in the descent and it is well worth it!!! Going up is much easier. The climbing part makes it more fun! It is very doable - my 11 years daughter did it by herself w/o any help with us.

I'm not sure what all the hype is about in going down Mooney Falls. I'm kind of a chicken when it comes to exposure while hiking and I did not feel unsafe going down at all. There are plenty of secure chains and pegs to...More

Challenging descent to the base. Not for everyone. Decent requires going through a cave, using ropes and ladders and is quite wet midway from the mist of the waterfall.

Amazing water fall recommend shoes specific for the water and gloves because the hike down is slippery and you will have to hold on to chains. Don't let fear stop you from making the hike down it's worth it when you are standing in front...More

Nature at it's best. Beautiful blue/green water, 200 foot drop, red sandstone cliffs and a heart dropping climb to the bottom.

Ok, so while the falls is beautiful, we couldn't make the descent to the bottom, which meant we couldn't get to Beaver Falls. You climb down through two short sections of caves, then you have to traverse down a steep rocky section, followed by a...More

I'm a little unclear about your plans. I assume that you already have the required reservation/permit for either the campground or the Lodge. Otherwise, you're not allowed to enter Havasupai territory; reservations have been... More
Unless I am reading the website wrong, this hike requires advance reservation and it cost $66 a person to get on the reservation. Is that correct?
