We will provide round-trip transportation from Phoenix the morning of the hike. We embark on a scenic drive to the top of Hualapai Canyon, and then begin our trek walking down to the junction of Havasu Canyon and then down further to our camp. The trail drops deeper and deeper as we watch the rock layers change and become older. (Rock formations at the bottom of the Grand Canyon are over two billion years old, half the age of the earth.) Eight miles down we pass through the Havasupai Tribal village of Supai. In another two miles, we arrive at our shaded camp area. We unload the gear and food brought and set up our comfortable camp. While the guide prepares a delicious dinner, enjoy your chance to splash around in Havasu Falls. After a long day of driving followed by the journey down the canyon, a restful evening is well earned by all. www.discoverytreks.com firstname.lastname@example.org (480) 247-9266
You awaken to the smell of fresh coffee and breakfast being prepared by your guide. Then we are off for a day of exploring the canyon and the incredible waterfalls. We will visit Havasu Falls, Fifty Foot Falls, and Mooney Falls.
Mooney Falls, the largest of the three main falls by our camp is over 200 feet high, and what a sight it is! To reach the bottom is a challenging descent down a chain ladder through rock tunnels. Of course, for the faint of heart this is considered an option that does not have to be done and the view from the top is just as beautiful.
We enjoy a deli lunch and then an afternoon of exploring another waterfall or just relaxing by the creek side. Maybe this is your time to meditate and just look at the beautiful rock faces above you, take a swim or enjoy a little siesta. Another wonderful dinner is prepared before the shadows deepen. The night skies are a myriad of stars you may never have seen before. Arizona skies are renowned for their stargazing and several astronomical observatories are spread throughout the state.
Eventually it’s time to burrow into your tent for another evening of deep sleep. You may find your dreams take you to places you never imagined, being here in the "canyon" seems to do that.
This last day, we begin preparations for the return to the top. It seems going back up the canyon that the views are always different than on the way down. There is so much to see and so many memories you will have once you are home again. We reach the trailhead by early afternoon, and arrive back in Flagstaff by about 4 pm. We hope to have provided you with a wonderful experience "below the rim.”
