Havasu Falls in Arizona – This time we will talk about desert oases. Yes, Havasu Falls in Arizona is a virtual Garden of Eden at the end of a grueling 10-mile walk to the southwest corner of the Grand Canyon. Not many people ever reach the turquoise pool and a hundred-foot cascade here. They were too busy fighting the crowds in the Grand Canyon’s Southern Circle. However, that is their loss. Havasu Falls is hard to get to but well worth the effort.
Havasu Falls in Arizona has been the destination of the avid hiker and adventure seeker in the Grand Canyon for years now. As a result of this ever-increasing demand, the impact on Havasupai has grown too large. So, there are some significant changes this year for booking your Hiking and Camping trip to the Falls.
