Havasupai means people of the blue-green waters. The spectacular waterfalls and isolated community within the Havasupai Indian Reservation attract thousands of visitors each year. The Havasupai are intimately connected to the water and the land. This blue- green water is sacred to the Havasupai. It flows not only across the land, but also through each tribal member. When you enter their land, you enter their home, their place of origin.

I loved this trip. Pack light and take lots of water. You will need at least 64 oz. There is a spring you can get water while down in the canyon and get more for the hike back out. Leave early - about 3 or 4 am to beat the heat. PLEASE pick up and pack out your trash! Also PLEASE pack out your own backpack. Don't pay to have the mules haul it out for you. They looked so worn out! One group had the mules haul down big camp stoves and coolers and had them haul everything back out. The mules had sores on their hind quarters from the straps sores on their legs from the rocky steep trail going up to the parking lot, and were really breathing hard. We saw one mule had lost a hoof along the trail - not a horse shoe - a whole hoof. So I am sure he had to be put down. The river and the falls are spectacular - but please don't litter and if you can't haul your own backpack out - you shouldn't go.

Hi, I have 1 spot for Havasupai camping permit on 5-8 Oct 2017 due to my personal issue. Any one interested please send me email for detail. email whyitishard911@gmail.com

The most breathtaking place you will ever hike to... the hike with a 40lb pack was intense and totally worth it at the same time. It’s definitely a bucket list place to go. The hike was about 12 miles to the campground the last two miles were the hardest. We started at about 4 am and reached the campground by 8am. Make sure to have a bear canister and put all food in there or the squirrels will get to it. I recommend staying at least two nights so that you won’t be too sore hiking back. The hike back is grueling at the end towards the parking lot. Bring lots of water!

Anyone selling permit for September 2017
Please email me g0din3z@yahoo.com thanks

Amazing place. Worth every mile. Give yourself plenty of time and be prepared for some switchbacks! Also the trail is gravel at some points but all in all not extremely difficult.
