You'll Need To Train For This Iconic American Overnight Hike

By Mina Elwell


The beautiful Havasu Falls in the Grand Canyon sees thousands of visitors annually, but making your way down into the canyon is a lot harder and needs intensive training.
The journey can be long, hot, and intense, and climbers need to train to be fit enough for the hike. Many prepare by doing difficult hikes until they’re ready for the Havasu Falls.
This hike is days of physically hard work, from tricky switchbacks to grueling heat. If you go to Mooney Falls, you will have to descend a cliff with only chains to cling onto.
Hikers typically carry heavy backpacks to replicate the experience and practice climbing. It is advised to train for six hours a week for three months prior to visiting the canyon.
