Havasupai Indian Reservation Closed

This might be a bit of old news, but it's worth repeating considering how popular this attraction (especially Havasu Falls) is.

Back in mid-August of this year, the Havasupai Indian Tribe experienced yet another monsoonal flood that did damage to the Supai Village as well as the basic tourist infrastructure to accommodate visitors. That resulted in the closure of the Havasupai Indian Reservation for visitation.

Floods are nothing new to this part of the Grand Canyon as evidenced by the last major one that occurred back in 1997. That one destroyed Supai Falls and turned Havasu Falls from a singular 100ft waterfall into a double-barreled 75ft waterfall.

But if you're anticipating a visit to this magical part of the American Southwest, you have an opportunity to plan ahead and enjoy its wonders in the Spring of next year.
