Havasu Falls

Considered the crown jewel of the Grand Canyon by many adventure seekers, Havasu Falls may be the most misidentified landmark in Arizona. When prompted to guess the location of a towering waterfall that gushes into a tranquil, turquoise pool, many people respond with Central and South American countries as guesses. Who can blame them? HavasuFalls2

It’s hard to fathom that in a state practically synonymous with the Saguaro cactus such a sight would exist. Yet, people in the know often wait a year or more for their turn to trek nearly twenty miles round trip to witness the splendor of Havasu Falls, Arizona. And while the hundred-plus foot fall captivates all who seek it out, dozens of smaller and equally refreshing falls dot the final two miles of trail leading to Havasu.

Ready to add Havasu Falls to your bucket list? Cool – just be sure to plan well in advance. Few people have what it takes to hike to the falls and back to their car in the same day. You’ll want to make camping or lodging reservations with a guide company or the Havasupai Indian Reservation. Wait lists tend to be very long.

Long hikes in Arizona require lots of water. With the Miracol Hydration backpack you can carry up to 2 liters of water on your back and keep it cold.
