Havasupai is home to the people of the blue-green water. Located within West Grand Canyon, this hike consists of 5 different turquoise waterfalls: Upper Navajo Falls, Lower Navajo Falls, Havasu Falls, Mooney Falls, and Beaver Falls. Each with their own type of adventure.

To hike from Hualapai Hilltop (parking lot) down to the last waterfall at Beaver Falls and back is a total of 28 miles. I had reservations for only one night. Our trip ended at Mooney Falls which meant 11 miles in Saturday and 11 miles out on Sunday. Next trip I plan to camp 2 nights to add in Beaver Falls and extra time to enjoy my surroundings.

Some people choose to hike the entire trip, some will ride a mule, and some will take a helicopter. I prefer the challenge of hiking in and out with all my gear.

This trip was taken in November of 2015. Reservations fill up quickly so it's recommended to plan months in advance to acquire the preferred dates.

As I approach the village I get the sense like I'm in a different country. It did not feel like I was just a 4.5 hour drive from Vegas.
