The Havasupai Indian village of Supai, located in Havasu Canyon, is remote – only accessible by mule, foot, or helicopter. Havasupai means "People-of-the-Blue-Green-Waters," and once you visit, you'll understand why. The highlights of Supai are the turquoise pools and roaring waterfalls that beckon visitors from all over the world.
You can camp in Suapi at a primitive campground that operates on a first-come, first-serve basis, or you can stay at the rustic Lodge in the village. The rooms have no phone or television, but they are charming and clean. Located at the base of a steep cliff, the Lodge is located about 1 1/2 miles (hiking) from Navajo Falls, the first of three beautiful waterfalls that cascade into deep, blue-green pools. Swimming is encouraged, and the photographic opportunities are endless.
All visitors must pay a fee and register with the Havasupai Tribe when they enter the village of Supai.
