HIKING TO HAVASU FALLS + THE HAVASUPAI TRAIL | Exploring Havasupai Vlog – Part 1

Join me on a full day hike to Havasu Falls!

My full guide to hiking Havasupai: https://www.alajode.com/havasu-falls-hiking-havasupai-everything-need-know/

@brendanvanson and I decided to spend a couple of nights at Havasu Falls during our US Southwest road trip. The hike to Havasu Falls is a pretty intense one – especially with three days’ worth of camping equipment on your back – and if you keep going a further 10 miles, you’ll end up at the Grand Canyon. The hike into the village of Supai is about 8 miles and the hike to Havasu Falls is a further 1-1.5 miles, so the hike took us almost a full day. Plus, it didn’t help that I picked up two bad blisters along the way!

In this travel vlog, we hike from the trail head to Havasu Falls. We set up our tent in the campground next to the waterfalls (between Havasu Falls and Mooney Falls) and try to take photos of Havasu Falls before sunset.

After a quick photography session, it’s time to make dinner back at the tent: my first ever freeze-dried meal. After that, it’s time for the camping at Havasu Falls to begin!

This was one of the hardest hikes I’ve ever done, my first time hiking a canyon, and my first time sleeping in a canyon.

Part 2 will be up next Sunday, and I’ll be posting a full guide to hiking Havasu Falls (and getting a reservation at the Havasu Falls campground!) on my travel blog soon: alajode.com

    Hi; HAVASU is turkish words. Hava means AIR, Su means WATER. All together AIRWATER. Water in the air. Interesting I wonder where the name comes from.

  6. Mai Cheng Lee on December 5, 2019 at 3:37 am

    If I do plan a trip at the end of December, would I still need a permit? I see that online it says that its close. Lastly, do you think this hike is doable in one day? Thanks in advance.

  7. James Hollenberg on December 5, 2019 at 3:38 am

    What time of year did you go to Havasu?

  8. vipan puri on December 5, 2019 at 3:38 am

    Waterfalls is beautiful so you babe & young man

  9. Alexander McInnes on December 5, 2019 at 3:38 am

    What month did you do your trip? I’m noticing your heavier outerwear at night.

  10. svaughan41 on December 5, 2019 at 3:40 am

    How was the weather that time of year? Was the water too cold?

  11. Faith Jay on December 5, 2019 at 3:43 am

    No need for TP

  12. Taking the Fork on December 5, 2019 at 3:44 am

    love this channel, you guys are so cute! DM me if you are ever road tripping in the US again 🙂

  13. Amber Bryeans on December 5, 2019 at 3:45 am

    Wow, your eyes are the same color as that water! Really pretty

  14. Robert Matesic on December 5, 2019 at 3:47 am

    Very well put together.  What month and the year did you make this hike?

  15. Iguana Pete on December 5, 2019 at 3:50 am

    2:53 if you had a GPS you would know EXACTLY how far it is.

  16. Athena Rubin on December 5, 2019 at 3:50 am

    Great jobs guy’s

  17. Kelly Agnes on December 5, 2019 at 3:51 am

    Hi! I’m a producer with Entertainment Tonight. Can we use your video across all platforms with credit to your youtube page?

  18. lumnir on December 5, 2019 at 3:51 am

    Did u have to make a reservation for this? It looks like you went around January or February(colder) so probably not, But in general during the warmer seasons is a Reservation required?

  19. Smug Smugly on December 5, 2019 at 3:52 am

    It’s because of stories like this I bought 2 MAGA hats

  20. Edward Jones on December 5, 2019 at 3:53 am

    The good donkeys might really be mules in this video? This down-under scene once had an aweful flood, around the turn of the century, that was said to have washed this whole place away? Glad that it’s really still there! It’s very remote & several miles each way, so plan well before your adventure trip here!

  21. Amber Bryeans on December 5, 2019 at 3:56 am

    Girl you look like Emily Blunt and you got the accent

  22. Cher Bee on December 5, 2019 at 3:56 am

    What time of year did you go?

  23. Jim Bonilla on December 5, 2019 at 3:57 am

    Great video! What month and days did you visit? I noticed it wasn’t crowded or as busy?👍☀️

  24. Constatine XI Palaeologus on December 5, 2019 at 3:58 am

    We use to go there every summer but not for a long time. I’ve been busy seeing other places out west as time allowed. I imagine all the mines there are blocked off now. Trips to the upper rims is nice.

  25. Wayne Fuller on December 5, 2019 at 3:59 am

    What time of year did you go there? Looks like November?

  26. Rock the Park / Saturdays on ABC on December 5, 2019 at 3:59 am

  35. ARSACE123 on December 5, 2019 at 4:11 am

    Just went there this June, yes the blue water is unbelievable and so refreshing after that trek in. The hike out is very challenging, particularly the switch backs. great shots!

  36. gorilla muffin on December 5, 2019 at 4:14 am

    If you don’t mind me asking, what camera and lens did you use to take these pictures with? Thanks in advance.

  37. Mike Federis on December 5, 2019 at 4:14 am

  42. Anthony Fox on December 5, 2019 at 4:15 am

  43. Martín Salazar on December 5, 2019 at 4:17 am

    I liked the blue of your eyes more than the lake

  47. Randy Gemar on December 5, 2019 at 4:22 am

    Just completed our November Thanksgiving week trip to Havasupi Falls. Spend 4 days hiking and creating some amazing gallery worthy shots. Thank you for your trip guide and blogs. Keep up the great work and let us know how that freeze dried diet was on the digestive system. 😉

  48. Raul Angel Fonseca on December 5, 2019 at 4:22 am

    I’ll be your donkey pls 🖤💟🖤

  49. Taz G on December 5, 2019 at 4:23 am

    And where are your sunglasses young lady? A great way to contribute to your eye problems when you’re 60. Otherwise this seasoned citizen is enjoying watching your hiking trip to America’s Shangri-la.

  50. Jordan Navarro on December 5, 2019 at 4:25 am

    What kind of sunglasses are those? Very nice =D
