If you love the outdoors, you will definitely enjoy a trip to Havasu Falls (Havasupai Falls). With its insanely beautiful waters and the pristine nature of its surroundings, going to Havasu Falls will only make you want to experience more outdoor activities.
If this is going to be your first time to see the iconic Havasu Falls of the Grand Canyon, here are tips that you should never forget!
- Pack Light
Don’t overdo your packing by bringing your entire house with you. Pack lightweight camping items such as tents and sleeping bags. If you don’t have equipment or gear of your own, make sure to borrow from friends or family. You will be hiking for several hours before you can reach Havasu Falls, so make sure to pack sensibly so you don’t end up exhausted just by carrying your own supplies.
- Bring fun, but lightweight items to make your trip more fun
The Havasupai Indian Reservation is home to five scenic and majestic waterfalls. This means that you have five opportunities to bathe in the blue green-water that spring from the Havasu Canyon. Here are items that should be included in your backpack:
- flotation device
- Pack on the essentials
If you are going to camp at Havasu Falls for at least two nights, you will need to pack provisions and necessities that you will use when camping.
- Sunscreen lotion
Regardless of season, you always need to make sure that your skin is protected from the harsh rays of the sun.
- Hiking Shoes
Don’t use brand new hiking shoes. Before your trip, it is best to break them in so you won’t have a hard time walking on them during the ten-mile hike from Hualapai Hilltop to Havasu Falls.
MREs are ready-to-eat meals that you can purchase from camping outfitter supplies. They are lightweight but are highly filling- the perfect food to choose when hiking or camping in the Grand Canyon.
