"Backpack" Supai by Vigg

Supai Travel Guide: 32 reviews and 58 photos

Upscale camping

Only after a 13 mile hike down in the canyon - SW end of Grand Canyon that is. You CAN opt to travel by horseback or helicopter.

Stunning water falls, desert landscape, wildlife, and more stars you could ever imagine. I climbed out of this hole after 5 days a revived woman. Best to travel during the cooler months! June was already too hot.

Back to basics

Select your camp site wisely! While the proximity of the outhouse for those night runs might seem appealing, the odor after a day's heat is not worth it. No phones. No light pollution. Bring plenty of hand sanitizing liquid.

If you like bats, they're everywhere come twilight. It's spectacular - had to be 10 different species flying about every night. I also saw three species of owls around 3 AM on my way out. Incredible.

Culture

Do NOT photograph the Supai Indian without first asking permission. You are on sovergn land, and the Supai Indian will let you know it. Don't mess with them. You might lose your food. Be accurate about the weight of the stuff you have trudged in by mule. 40# is the limit - and a pound over they'll steal your pack. Fortunately, my tribe smart medicine woman of a boy scout master sister-in-law charmed her way into the tribe mascot's heart! We got our food several hours later.
