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

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

  6. Martín Salazar on March 26, 2020 at 3:26 pm

    I liked the blue of your eyes more than the lake

  7. James Boyd on March 26, 2020 at 3:27 pm

    No Mooney or Beaver falls? You missed the best part.

  8. Tony Gareth on March 26, 2020 at 3:28 pm

    I want to hike to the bottom of the GC and I’ve been looking at Bright Angel trail and Phantom ranch BUT I’ve always wanted to go to these falls and camp down there! This may be the route I take. What’s required to do this?

  16. svaughan41 on March 26, 2020 at 3:38 pm

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

  17. ARSACE123 on March 26, 2020 at 3:40 pm

    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!

  18. Shawn Claycomb on March 26, 2020 at 3:42 pm

    Great hike, reminds me of Smith Rock in ORegon.

  19. Amber Bryeans on March 26, 2020 at 3:44 pm

  20. BILLY THE PHOENIX on March 26, 2020 at 3:46 pm

  21. Michele McCoy on March 26, 2020 at 3:46 pm

  22. Amber Bryeans on March 26, 2020 at 3:47 pm

  24. bryantroll on March 26, 2020 at 3:48 pm

    thanks for the vlog — I’ll be there this September and this is the first video I’ve watched that really takes you through the experience. What time of year were you there?

  25. James Hollenberg on March 26, 2020 at 3:48 pm

    What time of year did you go to Havasu?

  26. Wayne Fuller on March 26, 2020 at 3:49 pm

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

  27. Rigo Urias on March 26, 2020 at 3:54 pm

    There mules not donkeys.

  28. KAPS In Paradise on March 26, 2020 at 3:59 pm

    Great work on this vlog! The location is very beautiful and I urge you to keep up the good work. I am in the process of planning a similar video on a hike that I have in mind back here in Trinidad so again great content! ⭐️ New Subscriber!!!

  29. Taz G on March 26, 2020 at 3:59 pm

    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.

  30. Alexander McInnes on March 26, 2020 at 3:59 pm

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

  31. Raul Angel Fonseca on March 26, 2020 at 3:59 pm

    I’ll be your donkey pls 🖤💟🖤

  32. RealCity X on March 26, 2020 at 3:59 pm

  33. Isabella Restrepo on March 26, 2020 at 4:00 pm

    When did you stay here? seems like the weather was chilly.

  34. Iguana Pete on March 26, 2020 at 4:01 pm

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

  35. vipan puri on March 26, 2020 at 4:02 pm

    Waterfalls is beautiful so you babe & young man

  36. Anthony Fox on March 26, 2020 at 4:04 pm

    Great footage! Heading there next month! Finally!!! What camera /stabilizer did you use?

  37. Mike Federis on March 26, 2020 at 4:04 pm

    Great video! Always pleasing when the video is super smooth motion! Looking forward to seeing the next episode. #inspired

  38. Edward Jones on March 26, 2020 at 4:07 pm

    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!

  39. Mehmet Gürsoy on March 26, 2020 at 4:09 pm

    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.

  40. Faith Jay on March 26, 2020 at 4:10 pm

    No need for TP

  41. Kelly Agnes on March 26, 2020 at 4:10 pm

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

  42. Rock the Park on March 26, 2020 at 4:10 pm

    ⛰ this is AWESOME!

  43. Randy Gemar on March 26, 2020 at 4:11 pm

    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. 😉

  44. Robert Matesic on March 26, 2020 at 4:13 pm

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

  45. Jim Bonilla on March 26, 2020 at 4:14 pm

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

  46. Natalie Patino on March 26, 2020 at 4:14 pm

    What month of the year did you guys go? It looks so empty! Im going in November

  47. Cher Bee on March 26, 2020 at 4:15 pm

    What time of year did you go?

  48. Jordan Navarro on March 26, 2020 at 4:16 pm

    What kind of sunglasses are those? Very nice =D

  49. Constatine XI Palaeologus on March 26, 2020 at 4:16 pm

    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.

  50. Smug Smugly on March 26, 2020 at 4:16 pm

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