Havasupai Indian Reservation and Navajo Reservation
On the south side of the amazing Colorado River, you will find Havasupai tribal lands, a gorgeous tributary canyon, and other Havasupai Indian Reservation areas of interest. This is located just about 190 miles west of the popular Grand Canyon area known as the Village.
This region is just outside of the Grand Canyon. In this area, you may observe the Havasupai Indians in their natural habitat, see a vast array of wildlife and flora, and even observe the beautiful and wild Havasupai Falls. In addition to the Havasupai Indian Reservation, you may also visit a Navajo Indian Reservation.

The Kaibab National Forest and Sonoran Desert
Do you enjoy the thrill of adventuring into the forest? Do you enjoy seeing wildlife in their natural habitats? Do you have a passion for plants and flora? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you should take the time to visit the Kaibab National Forest while visiting the Grand Canyon.
This amazing forest surrounds both the South Rim and the North Rim. You may hike, bike, backpack, or camp in the forest! If you are mesmerized by the beauty of the desert, you may also tour the Sonoran Desert.
While exploring the desert, you will come in direct contact with the Oak Creek Canyon – an absolutely wonderful location for a picnic! If you have an interest in setting up a tour, visit the following link: 3-Day Sedona and Grand Canyon Traveler.
The Sensational Skywalk
Situated just west of the national park is the absolutely stunning and sensational Skywalk. This is a glass structure that extends over the rim of the canyon – immediately over the Hualapai Indian Reservation.
This is located about 250 miles away from the South Rim of the national park. Here, you will get to observe the canyon in all of its beauty. You will be absolutely thrilled by the appeal of the structure and the area!
