2. Havasu Falls

Havasupai is an Indian reservation in the Indian state of Arizona.

Havasu Falls is what you are heading for after you’ve seen the Little Navajo Falls.

The color of the water is just stunning and the rocks were formed naturally as the creek was flowing in the direction of the Colorado River.

If you are getting ready to hike to the falls, you must know that there are at least ten miles that you should pass.

4. Visit the Grand Canyon

The Antelope Canyon is divided into two zones only – the Upper and the Lower Canyon.

The Grand Canyon has four zones and each of them is attractive for tourists.

In the North, the canyon is for brave and hotshot.

In the South, the canyon is for hiking and jeep exploring.

If you want to explore the Grand Canyon with lots of other tourists, start with the south part.

In case you are going for more secluded areas, go to the north.
