Havasu falls, Grand Canyon, Arizona. If you have seen video or pictures of
waterfalls in the Grand Canyon, it's likely you are looking at Havasupai falls otherwise known as Havasu falls. There are three main falls in the Havasu Canyon namely Havasu Falls, Mooney Falls and Navajo Falls. Each one has it's own special features and each one is well worth the hike (or helicopter fee) to see. Havasu Falls are the second falls you come to and are located just above the campgrounds in the canyon. Havasu Falls have an incredible bluish green tint to the water and the fall is forked and looks like two falls when the river is flowing heavily. Mooney falls are the tallest at over 200 feet and the hike down is a little dangerous and a lot of fun. We will go into a little more detail on each of the Havasu Canyon waterfalls in the Havasu Falls Picture Tour.
In the spring of 2004 I traveled from Salt Lake City to Havasupai by car with my wife and hiked down the 10 miles to Havasupai falls. Before we left we
find one website to help us make our decisions for travel and hiking. For instance, how hard is the hike down Havasupai? How long is the drive to the
Hilltop? What is the village like now? What are the closest towns and hotels? And so on.
Before we left Havasupai Canyon and the
Havasupai Waterfalls I decided I would build a site with the information we were looking for before we left for our Havasupai hike. If you have any information or images you would like added to this site please send us an email and we will try to get it up to help others to have a great hike in Havasupai. Send email to sewing (at) havasufalls.net.
Enjoy your stay,
