Havasupai is a remote location located West in the Grand Canyon. This land belongs to the Havasupai tribe who has lived there for over 800 years. The bright blue Havasu creek flows through this area, creating several spectacular waterfalls. This is one of the most gorgeous places to visit in Arizona, and therefore extremely popular. The Havasupai tribe only allows so many people to visit, which can make the permit process difficult to obtain.
