Havasu Falls offers a perfect balance of natural forces: turquoise water and red, red rock, glowing beneath a blue desert sky. Other falls are taller; other falls carry greater volumes of water. And boy, are other falls easier to reach―to get to Havasu, you hike 10 miles into Havasu Canyon near―at least on the map―to the South Rim, having obtained the required trail permit from the Havasupai Indian Reservation months earlier. But no waterfall in the world is so worth the work.
