Definitely not for faint-hearted

Once done with early dinner back at Havasupai Campground, we headed for Havasu Falls. We wanted to spend some time by the large pool at the bottom of the falls. One of the most beautiful waterfalls in America looked quite epic. As was the same at Mooney Falls, the roaring sound of water falling was quite deafening. Not too long ago a bunch of youngsters filmed their crazy jumps from the top of the falls into the pool. This YouTube video went viral, and as dangerous as it is, it glamorized the whole experience of visiting the waterfalls. Mind you, it is about 100 feet high. It is definitely not for the faint-hearted. Because the top of the falls via a dirt path was quite close to the main trail, we saw quite a few people came in and out of sight at the top although no one jumped. Luckily there were some moments where no one was around either at the top or near the bottom of the falls.
