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!
