Why Not Take the Back Way to the Grand Canyon?

Looking to do some hiking around the Grand Canyon area? Here’s what the secret (well, sort of secret) back way looks like.

The Grand Canyon is an amazing place to really take in the sights of nature, showing off the sheer power of water as well as nature in all of its glory. Most people who choose to visit the canyon do so from above and look down into the river that appears to be nothing more than a small stream below. But what many people don’t know is that there is a back way into the canyon.

The Havasau Canyon leads into the Grand Canyon through the Havasupai Indian Reservation and can be accessed by swimming, rafting, or kayaking ten miles through the turquoise waters. There is a $40 fee to get access to the river through the Indian Reservation’s land but after seeing some of the images from this pristine wilderness area, we’d say it’s well worth the price of admission.
