Havasupai, known as the “land of the blue-green waters,” is an unexpected oasis deep in the bottom of the Grand Canyon that has been home to the Havasupai Indian Tribe for hundreds of years. It has become a popular place for hikers and campers and over the last few years photos circulating across the web have generated an influx of people interested in hiking to the waterfalls. This website has been created to help interested people gather information about how to plan a trip to visit Havasu Falls on the Havasupai Indian Reservation. Information is collected from across the internet and from hikers’ own experiences. Please consult the Havasupai Tribe website or call the tribe office for official information and updates.
Within the Grand Canyon, perennial water sources are rare and life-giving. The water of Havasu creek has been the life-source of the Havasupai Indian tribe who have called this part of the canyon home for centuries, and it also gives life to thriving plant and animal communities. Canyon grapevine and giant Fremont cottonwood trees create a swath of lush greenery against the red rock of the canyon walls and provide refreshing shade to hikers and adventurers. The biologic diversity here is astounding and it is not uncommon to see canyon tree frogs, cottontail rabbits, rattlesnakes and desert king snakes, a variety of cactus, or even a majestic california condor soaring overhead. This riparian community exists in a careful harmony which we as visitors threaten with our very presence, we must take great care to treat this canyon oasis with the respect and awe that it deserves, it is a delicate balance.
