Not much to say other than it is so beautiful here. They have a fun little rope swing to jump into a pool on. You do have to do a little hair raising climb down in to the falls. Just take your time and don't look down and you will be fine. We explored down the river a little ways.... More

All of the waterfalls in the Havasupai Reservayion are gorgeous but Mooney Falls is the most rewarding. The trail down is a little scary but 2 almost 50 year olds in average shape were able to do it. It was like finding a piece if paradise. The base of the falls themselves was a little crowded but hiking along the... More

No words to describe. Simply amazing. Getting down to the falls is tricky. Read other reviews. But worth it.

Lot of people say that Mooney Falls is most beautiful waterfall in the world. And they may be right. The place is breath taking and worth 11 mile hike. Descent to the bottom of the waterfall may be a challenge, be careful. Personally I like Beaver Falls more then Mooney Falls, but to get to Beaver Falls you need to... More

Taking the winding path through a cave, not handicap accessible, you climb almost 200 feet down. Use the chains and ladders to get down. The thundering sound is awesome and the cool water refreshing. Many stay there all day relaxing and jumping off the little falls just below.

Fully reviewed in my Havasu falls entrance. Do not miss it, be careful, but if you get scared, just take solace in the fact that kids as young as 11 and as old as 70 made the journey. Suck it up, plus you have to go here if you want to get to beaver falls, and you really don't want... More

To get to the base of the 190 foot high waterfall, you must crawl through two tunnels carved into the rock, and make a dizzyingly steep climb down the rock face. Several very sturdy chains and a few reasonably sturdy ladders are there to assist you. Hold on with both hands, go slowly, and you’ll be fine. The reward: the... More

Incredible to think something like this exists anywhere much less in the middle of the desert. Hiking through caves and down ladders really makes you appreciate the beauty even more! Definitely try to go during the week so you have more solitude

Don't attempt to climb down to the bottom unless you are fearless. Getting to the bottom requires strength, endurance, patience (as you wait for others to safely pass by), a like for dark caves and trust in the giant chains embedded into the rock. Now you have to climb out. But SOOOO worth it! Not recommended for children under the... More

A recent hiking trip to Havasupai included climbing down to the base of Mooney Falls. The climb down is not for the faint of heart. You have to go through a cave and tunnel before reaching the wall. You go backwards hanging on the chains and metal spikes. I advise having gloves for the climb. I used a golf glove... More
