Comments: Finally I got a reservation to Havasu Falls I went two times last year. Once in July and then in October. What a blast I had to get a trip in this summer. People say it's to hot to go then but once you get down there it doesn't matter. What a awesome place. It's like you aren't in Arizona. I will also make a trip there in the fall as well. Everyone take care and have a great hike to Havasu Falls.

Comments: Beautiful! Beyond any descriptive words. Loved the trails, the falls, the friendly people, the dogs, the village; everything but the hike out! I was especially appreciative of the ways the Havasupai tribe goes to protect their land, like packing out ALL trash and compost toilets. I agree with everyone else to start your hike early for both hiking in and out. And bring LOTS of water, make sure to visit the store for some ice cold soda to spoil yourself for a job well done. Definitely will be visiting as soon and often as possible.
Thank you for opening your wonderful land to tourists such as I!

Comments: During summer remediation school, I always use the Havasupi tribe and the existing information on the web, to have my students do research, comprehension work, and writing exercises in order to prepare them for the upcoming LEAP test. They enjoy reading about your history;viewing the falls; and seeing all the other offerings your web pages have.

Comments: returned from our amazing hike just June 11,we loved the campground the falls and of course the canyon itself. Our first time to venture into the Grand Canyon and many lessons were learned. I highly recomend starting your hike as early as possible, we descended starting at 9 am what a mistake, the sun shown down us as we moved from each shady overhang to the next. We started our hike out at 2am using headlamps, we were worried about heat exhaustion, but the hike was beutiful with pink canyon walls at daybreak.One of the village dogs lead us on the trail we trusted him and I really believe he knew the easiest trails to take us on.

Comments: Twelve of us had an outstanding time in Havasupai this past weekend. A few thoughts from our trip: We were there 2 nights and really wished we'd stayed for 3 nights in order to enjoy the springs (and recuperate) for two full days. It was important to get out of camp by 5 am for the hike out. Could have even left an hour earlier to really hike comfortably. Was brutally hot toward the end! We packed our bags in, but had the mules take them out ($93 for 4 bags - so worth it. Bags arrived at 11:30 a.m. up top, so we had to wait a little while. Better that than walking in the heat). That was definitely the way to go. We wished we had started earlier on the hike into the falls as well - we started at 9 am and it was fairly sun-exposed the entire time. I'd recommend being on trail by/before 6 or 7 am on the way in. We drank at least 100 oz of water on the way in and out each. It was very warm at night (June timeframe) - no blanket or sleeping bags were needed - just a sheet.

Comments: My family visited the last part of May. The trip was the first for my son and his girlfriend and they had no idea what to expect. Despite gale force winds and a bit of physical challenge we all agree it was a fantastic trip. By the second day the weather had settled into beautiful warm blue skies and stayed that way the next three days. They hiked to all water falls and I hiked to the Colorado river, what a great experience. A special thanks to the gentleman at the campground who was generally found where pack animals were tethered. He went out of his way to help me and seemed to be genuinely concerned that our needs were met and questions answered. Thanks to all for another memorable and wonderful trip!

Comments: 15 of us had a great Memorial weekend trip, inspite of the misinformation and indifference of the Havasupai people. I can understand the rates they charge, the falls are truly beautiful and the hike challenging, but the reservation process was terrible and very hard to get thru to. The campground had some trash but nothing compared to how families are living down there and you got a different answer to questions from everyone you asked. We paid our "enviornmental fee" and were still told we had to pack out our trash. When we asked why others had taken our trash, we were told it was because they are stupid idiots who are afraid to tell the tourists to take it with them...nice
We waited 3 hours for our pack animal to bring up our bags even though we dropped them off the day before at 5pm and the animals are suppose to be opperating from 7 to 7 - it was disappointing, but it was such a great time, we will still probably go back within the next year or two.
