Discover The Havasu Tribe And Their Many Waterfalls

The Havasu are a tribe of Native Americans who have lived within the region of the Grand Canyon in Arizona, for approximately eight hundred years. Their land covers one of the most scenic areas in the United States, if not the world. The Grand Canyon and many of its beautiful features are accessible from the reservation for a small fee, which goes towards the upkeep of the roads and amenities which the tourists use. The Havasupai tribal area contains many stunning waterfalls.

The most famous waterfall out of all of them are the Havasu Falls. Havasupai actually translates to the people of the blue-green waters, and upon visiting any of the canyon tributaries and waterfalls it is clear to see why. The waters are likely to be the most beautiful color that tourists have ever seen. Whether the water is flowing slowly or pouring over the edge of a cliff face, the turquoise pure water is a sight to behold. The other falls in this region are the New Navajo Falls, Fifty Foot Falls, Mooney Falls and Beaver Falls. The most visited are the Havasu Falls, and it is a well-known spot for people to dive off the cliff into the water at the bottom of the falls.

The Havasu Falls can get quite busy during holiday periods (but you can check grand canyon tours for details), and for those looking for a quieter experience, then the other falls in the area should be the target. All of them involve hiking for a few miles, but even in the summer heat, they are all well worth the effort. For those who enjoy geological features, then the Beaver Falls are a must see, as they involve a series of small falls, which include mineral deposits. Although most people who visit the tribal area go straight to the canyon itself, going off the normal tourist tracks will ensure a memorable experience.
