Havasu Falls, Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona, USA

Havasu Falls (Havasupai: Havasuw Hagjahgeevma) is a waterfall in the Grand Canyon located 1½ miles from Supai, Arizona, USA. It is arguably the most famous and most visited of all the falls and consists of one main chute that drops over a 120-foot (37 m) vertical cliff into a large pool. Due to the high mineral content of the water, the falls are ever-changing and sometimes break into two separate chutes of water.
The falls are known for their natural pools, created by mineralization, although most of these pools were damaged or destroyed in the early 1990s by large floods that washed through the area. A small man-made dam was constructed to help restore the pools and to preserve what is left. There are many picnic tables on the opposite side of the creek, and it is very easy to cross over by following the edges of the pools. It is possible to swim behind the falls and enter a small rock shelter behind it.
