The United States has no shortage of breathtaking natural wonders, but one stands out among them all. Havasu Falls, known worldwide for its unparalleled beauty, and has some of the bluest water in the country.
Havasu Falls in Arizona, is one of the most beautiful destinations on Earth, however very few will ever see it. Of all of America’s waterfalls, Havasu Falls is one of the most difficult to reach.
Aside from the challenging hike, the popular waterfall is located on Havasupai tribal lands, and is one of the most admired waterfalls in the country! A permit is required and must be obtained for visiting the Havasupai Reservation. Then it’s an eight mile hike from the hiker’s parking lot to Havasupai Village; and another two miles from the village to Havasu Falls.
If a 10 mile hike is not your thing, there is a much easier way to get to the falls. For a fee, you can bypass the hike and jump aboard a helicopter that ferries hikers in and out of the canyon.
Once you have arrived, there is no shortage of things to see in this breathtaking oasis.
