Havasupai Falls


The Havasupai Waterfalls are located near the bottom of the Grand Canyon, on the Havasupai Indian Reservation. The water flows over orange travertine cliffs in a desert oasis of stunning beauty! The blue-green hue is created from the lime it carries from the travertine/sticks/leaves deposits.

The contrast between the desert landscape of the canyon and the lush vegetation near the water is amazing!

There are five main waterfalls: Navajo Falls, Fifty Foot Falls, Havasu Falls, Mooney Falls and Beaver Falls. Yes, the campgrounds are crowded and permits are very difficult to obtain, but this truly is a paradise in the desert!

  1. Wow, Keven! It has been years since I’ve been there but this takes me right back! I’m so glad I looked at these on my pc rather than a small device. The grandeur is breathtaking. I looked at the stills first and they are crystal clear, beautiful and fun. It is such a beautiful place – hence, all the people. It is worth it, though. But then I watched – and listened to – the video. So much water! I don’t remember there being quite that much water. The sound of the falls really gives you a sense of its power. Excellent work, as always. I got the impression, even though I don’t see you, that you had a good time. 🙂 I hope so. Thanks for posting your outstanding work. I’m going to send it to my buddies that hiked down there with me so they can relive it, too!
