In March 2018 I was one of the lucky 150 people that get to experience Havasu Falls.
The Hike is challenging, the cost of camping is high but the reward is something special that will live with me for the rest of my life! Check out the Vlog & my top tips for hiking one of the most unique locations in the world, Havasu Falls.

What did I bring?
Highlight of the Hike?
Reaching the falls! After a long 4 hour hike there was no better reward than seeing the beautiful Havasu Falls and pitching up a tent alongside the creek...
Because the village is so restricted in regards to how many people visit daily you really can find an area of the camp ground to make your own so you really get a sense of being at one with nature. The area also has a strict no alcohol and no drugs policy... After a challenging hike as soon as darkness hit I was asleep and out like a light with just the sound of the stream alongside my tent for noise .
What I did see is a few people who just hitched up with hammocks to sleep in, this is a great idea especially as it reduces the weight of carrying a tent into the park.
There was two food stands inside the campground which opened for a few hours a day serving things like tacos, corn dogs and burgers which were really tasty! These as you expect were cash only. There is two shops in the village with basic supplies.
My top tip however is to try the breakfast burrito from the first store you see as you enter Supai village from the trail!! So yummy and just what you needed after the first 8 miles or before you hike back up to the hilltop (they also have hot coffee inside the store)
Who is this for
