Yes it's hard to get a reservation. It takes multiple phone calls, persistence, and timing. I will be going with friends in early June of 2016. It will be my 3rd trip down there... read more

I recently embarked on a group adventure to tackle the Havasupai leg of the Grand Canyon. This hike is known to be one of the most picturesque and stunningly beautiful hikes....and it lived up to every syllable.....almost! Unfortunately what lies at the bottom of the NW end of this magnificent hike is Supai Village. Accessible only on foot, horseback or... More

I was fortunate enough to get a permit (reservation at the lodge) this August to hike into the Havasupai Reservation. If you are interested in getting a permit, reservations for camping begin Feb 1st and book up for the year pretty quickly. I think reservations for the lodge can be made at any time, but with minimal staff, it will... More

As beautiful as the falls are, their treatment of animals is ugly. Sept 4/5 we witnessed a starving horse tied to a post in the hot sun with no food, water or shade for two days, until we reported it to the local police. There was a colt in a pen where he could barely turn around, alone and away... More

I have visited 10 times and taken family 8... The Havasupai Nation has endured much. Please show respect and do not expect a concierge to meet and greet you. You come to visit their nation and it is a long, hard walk. It is their land and you, like me are an outsider... If you come to observe you will... More

Went to Havasupai to enjoy what I thought would be the trip of a lifetime. The emaciated horses and mules, the wounds on their tired bodies, and the fact they were standing the hot sun for hours, no water or food, was enough to render any "beauty" there utterly null. I would never go back.

There are so many things to say and so much to do, an amazing amount of beauty and a real awakening to being free! No where I have ever been could compare or even come close to havasupai... An in spoilt part of nature I cannot do it justice with my words or pictures, but I will say that the... More

1. Animal abuse. The village keeps these animals to transport luggage and tourists to and from the top. These animals are driven hard up and down and are in a lather and in terrible shape. The harnesses cut into the legs and blood flows down. The wranglers crack a whip or sic the dogs constantly with some whipping. See the... More

We went downhill on April 18th, back uphill on April 20th. Because I had read the Trip Advisor reviews I was acutely aware of, and looking for, signs of abuse. I saw none. These horses and donkeys are bred to preform this task. I saw no sores. They appeared to be healthy. And they were certainly not struggling to carry... More

My sister and I just returned from a trip to Havasupai on Tuesday 4/19. We spent the weekend there, like so many others, to enjoy the beauty of the falls and go hiking. The falls are truly stunning and among one of the most beautiful natural landscapes I have ever witnessed. However, there is another sight that we observed there... More

Yes it's hard to get a reservation. It takes multiple phone calls, persistence, and timing. I will be going with friends in early June of 2016. It will be my 3rd trip down there. So it is possible. I'd suggest that once the lines are opened up you just keep dialing and get 2 or 3 of your friends to... More
