In search of paradise? Look no further than this oasis nestled deep in the Arizona desert. After embarking on an 8 mile hike that descends into the deep canyon of Havasupai, you arrive at the town of Supai where the members of the tribe live. From this point, only 2 miles remain until you reach the campground and the first of several incredible waterfalls.

The tribe very graciously opens up their land to adventurers so that others can experience the unreal place that they call home. Planning a trip here isn't the easiest since reservations must be made well in advance, but the effort is well worth it. There are endless things that make this place so amazing, but here are 5 that should be more than enough reason for you to add it to your bucket list ASAP!
