The Havasupai Tribe only offers a 3 night/4 day camping permit to hike to the Havasu Falls. They can be purchased via the tribe’s reservation website. Permits go on sale every February 1st. Only 300 permits are sold daily. They cost between $300 and $375USD depending on which days you choose. Weekdays are cheaper. 

The Hike

You will hike 10 miles to the campsite: eight miles to the tribe’s village to check in and another two miles beyond that. The canyon heats up as the day progresses so start as early as possible. The hike will take you at least four hours depending on your level of experience.
