Arizona has 2 of America’s 15 best waterfalls you can swim in

Waterfalls are great to look at, but they are much better when you can actually swim in them.

If you are looking for the best of the best in the country, Arizona has two of the top 15 in the country according to Thrillist.

Havasu Falls in the Grand Canyon and near the Havasupai Indian village of Supai is a beautiful spot to take it in.

With a 100ft chute cascading down stunning red rock cliffs into a shimmering pool of turquoise water, the most picturesque falls you’re ever to lay eyes on come at a heavy price. Located in a remote section of the Grand Canyon 1.5 miles outside the Havasupai Indian village of Supai, you’ll need to either charter a helicopter or hike 10 miles in the Arizona sun before basking in the rejuvenating rewards of its pristine, year-round 72-degree waters. On the bright side, if you don’t feel like schlepping all your gear on the hike to the falls, you can rent a pack mule. Seriously.

Another waterfall at the Grand Canyon, Mooney Falls, made the list.

Like Havasu Falls, the otherworldly Mooney Falls is located in the Grand Canyon but not in Grand Canyon National Park, with land administered by the Havasupai Indian Reservation. And like Havasu Falls, it is one of the most beautiful waterfalls you will ever lay eyes on. Also like Havasu Falls, it ain’t easy to get to. While the strenuous trek crawling through tunnels and climbing down a sheer rock-face isn’t as soul-crushing as the 10-mile slog to Havasu, it ain’t for beginners either.
