Other reviews sum this up correctly. I would just add, if you plan to spend time in the water there, make sure you go early enough to be in the sun. It can be cool when shadow cast over the canyon walls.

Once you get to Havasupai you simply have to go to Mooney Falls. Yes the ladders and the tunnels look a little scary but but it's an easy descent/ascent. Take lots of photos because it looks really third world - no guard rails, no signs - you're just responsible for your own stupidity . Nice to be treated like a... More

My family of 4 hiked down to Mooney Falls in June 2016 while staying at the Lodge in Supai. I loved Mooney Falls even more than Havasu Falls, maybe because it is less crowded. Even though we had done our research, the descent into Mooney Falls was more treacherous than I thought it would be. The "steps" with chains going... More

See my review of the Havasupai Lodge for my trip summary, to include the hike in, where to eat, taking the helicopter out. This review will be for Mooney and Beaver Falls only. I will review the other falls independently. Our Havasupai trip was four days total and I highly recommend it. Day 1: Hiking in. Day 2: New Navajo... More

As some people have mentioned, the hike down to the falls is a little tricky. For us, it was mostly the very end where you use a ladder--it got really muddy right there. The falls themselves are breathtakingly gorgeous. The water was REALLy coid--but we found that refreshing!! It was fun to try and swim (creep along the rocks is... More

This is the biggest fall and a must seen but be very careful going down as it is very steep and most of the time it is very wet so be careful as you may slip! Just take your time and have people with you.. In such place all people are in good mood and willing to help each others... More

Mooney Falls is lovely and a wonderful place to spend some time swimming, wading and even using a good-old fashioned rope swing. The tricky part is getting there. Mooney Falls is 200 feet high - higher than Niagara Falls. One can view the falls by climbing a short way down a well-worn path. To visit the falls, however, one must... More

So beautiful to see. I couldn't get over the water clarity and color the reservation is so blessed with these natural features. Challenging factor -Need to single file through a tunnel then down an edge and ladder, had chain for grip. Some folks afraid of heights wasn't able to overcome their fear. Hear there was a video to watch. Going... More

Im a bit older, light but not athletic really. If you're afraid of heights and/ or short and/or not too confident in your physical strength and agility, it is reassuring and important to have your guide give you a good overview of what to expect or if you're lucky enough, to have one hang with you to guide your foot...
