Getting A License AND Reserving a spot FOR HAVASU FALLS

That is assuming you’re among the fortunate few ready to score a booking when the season’s dates go live on February 1 at 8 a.m. (MST).

Where to remain

The Camping area

The camping area is a region crossing a mile on the two sides of Havasu Stream between Havasu Falls and close by Mooney Falls. There are no appointed locales; meaning, when you show up, you’re free to camp out any place you like inside the assigned region.

To make a campsite reservation, visit before February and make a record. ( You can’t acquire allows or reserve a spot for the camping area using the telephone.) You’ll express gratitude toward us some other time when the site goes live and you’re not playing with logins, particularly since reservations can sell out in practically no time. Having a record allows you to take a look at the crossing out/move page for dates that resume later in the year.

On the off chance that you anticipate setting up camp, remember all camping area reservations are for three evenings and four days — no more, no less.


Not a camper? You can rather reserve a spot at the Hotel, found two miles from the falls, beginning June 1. ( Note: These are nitty gritty facilities.)

Not at all like reserving a spot for the camping area, which is online, the Hotel just acknowledges reservations by telephone. Call (928) 448-2111 to book a space for dates between February 1 – November 30. Assuming you call and nobody replies, attempt once more (and once more) until you contact somebody, and feel free to allow it endlessly to ring).

All installments are expected at the hour of booking, and just a single charge card is permitted per bunch. Installments are non-refundable and license reservations are non-adaptable.

What to bring

Havasu Falls is remote, so anticipate a climb with some shade. Bring sunscreen, a cap, an emergency treatment pack, tidbits, and a lot of water. There is no water accessible on the path, and it’s suggested every individual bring essentially a gallon for themselves. Traveling posts are discretionary, albeit numerous explorers see these as accommodating for the precarious curves.

For your visit to the lower part of the gorge, bring a swimming outfit, water shoes, a towel, and a camera. Pack a tent, hiking bed, resting cushion, inflatable pad, and compact exploring oven on the off chance that you are enjoying nature. Bring food regardless of whether you are remaining at the Hotel.

The actual climb

The trip to Havasu Falls is — to state it essentially — troublesome. Contingent upon your wellness level, the climb can be very difficult, starting (and finishing) with curves that adjust the height by 1,800 feet in the initial two miles. The trouble is compounded by heat in the mid-year.

You’ll begin from the Hualapai Ridge, walking down the Havasu Falls Trail into the lower part of the Excellent Ravine. The following six miles to Supai is moderately level. From that point, it is two extra miles to the campsite.

En route to the campsite, you’ll pass three cascades: Fifty Foot, Lower Navajo, and Havasu Falls. Plan to go through no less than four hours climbing down to the campsite, drink a lot of water, and rest in the shade when you can.

Havasupai wasn’t frustrated this time. We had four days of clear skies and daylight. This made the 45+ miles of climbing we did considerably more agreeable (22 miles out and back from the parking area, 18-mile day climb to Beaver Falls and the Conversion, + other brief day climbs). It was considerably less packed than in October, so we fundamentally had the paths to ourselves. The main drawback to this season is that the daylight never truly hits Havasu and Mooney Falls. Makes for a cold swim. Additionally, except if you’re an ardent explorer and truly appreciate thrashing yourself on the path, I wouldn’t go on past Beaver Falls. The path to the Juncture is incredibly congested, comprising of an additional 6 knee-profound rivulet intersections, a rope close by a precipice, and adds 10 miles onto your climb. Any inquiries regarding this climb if it’s not too much trouble, go ahead and inquire.
The outing chief ought to be ready to give a personal ID to get all grants, wristbands, sack labels, and an entry structure, which should be finished and displayed to the Havasupai Reservation limit designated spot staff. All individuals from the gathering will be approached to show all necessary desk work at the Havasupai Reservation limit designated spot, around 5 miles from Ridge (the trailhead).

The Havasupai Hotel is situated in Supai Town, so assuming you’re remaining here, drop off your sacks in your room and unwind — you made it! To progress forward to Havasu Falls and the campsite, you have one more two miles of climbing to go.


What to do during your visit

As well as absorbing the miracle that is Havasu Falls, you ought to make time to investigate the region’s different cascades. You’ll see three of them on your climb from Supai Town to the campsite. Two additional cascades sit only north of the camping area on Havasu Falls Trail.

Once got comfortable at camp, a great many people day-climb to different falls. Simply a half-mile from the campsite, the Havasu Falls Trail requires scrambling down fog-covered gulch walls while clutching a chain to get to the pools of Mooney Falls and keep on beavering Falls. Courageous explorers can go the whole way to the Colorado Stream.
