2 tunnels later and with the help of chains and bolts, you will arrive at this magical landing with the full frontal view of the Mooney Falls. This is the best fall in supai in my opinion because of the thrill of the descend. It...More

This fall is a mile hike from the Havasupai campground. To get to Mooney falls you have to climb down 2 tunnels and ladders on a cliff. I went with Pygmy guide and it was a breeze. I am scared of heights, but my adventurous...More

Sorry, I couldn't help myself. There were two "terrible" reviews and one of them wasn't about the falls at all, but about the horses and mules. It got over 100 helpful votes. While I don't advocate animal abuse THAT has nothing to do with Mooney...More

There is no explaining Mooney Falls nor explaining the climb down, but I will try. The majestic thunder of water slams to the pool below, all enveloped in a caress of red granite soaring into the blue sky. Amazing!!!. The climb down is not bad,...More

So the climb down is straight towards the sign that says "descend at your own risk". If you go straight from the Havasu trail you will see the sign and go towards the right to find the path down. I have a fear of heights...More

It's like Havasu Falls, but bigger. Twice as tall, in fact. The thumbnail photo that Trip Advisor has here is as far as I'd recommend some people go. Here's why: Just past the campground, you'll come to a few signs that say "descend at your...More

This was an adventure! To get to the falls you have to go through a short cave and scale the side of the mountain climbing down wooden stairs and using chains. It was well worth the anxiety! Beautiful falls and down stream from the falls...More

To get to the base of the fall you will need to climb down through a couple of tunnels and ladders. Go in the late afternoon and the area is just about deserted.

The pools are an inch deep to 6' or more. I would NOT jump into them. The pools are deceptive. In one place, you are on an underwater ledge 2' inches deep, one step over and it is 4' deep. I would make sure you have either... More

It should be no problem for a kid who likes to be outdoors. Just make sure he has respect for the edge. If you expect to see a lot of safety equipment (handrails, etc) you will be disappointed.
