The Havasupai Reservation is a treasure of the Grand Canyon that many people don't get to see. Havasu Canyon is known for its majestic waterfalls & beautiful blue-green waters. The spring fed Havasu Creek runs over 10 miles through the canyon. Five major waterfalls cascade along the way. First is New Falls, which was created after a 2008 flash flood. Here, many different falls seem to come out of the vegetation falling into a soaking pool. Second is Navajo Falls, which drops 25 ft . Although it is downstream from New Falls, it is the first fall seen from the trail. Next, Havasu Falls shows the true beauty of Havasupai. With its large soaking pool, this 100 ft fall is a surreal place to float the day away. Mooney Falls at 200 ft is the tallest. Descending requires scrambling through a series of tunnels followed by chains & ladders that are bolted into the cliff face. Don't attempt if afraid of heights or unsure of climbing abilities. Beaver Falls, about 2 miles downstream from Mooney, is a series of cascading falls with many soaking pools to enjoy.
