Supai

Supai, the capital of the Havasupai Reservation, is on a plateau about 2000 feet below Hualapai Hilltop. About 200 people live there year round, almost all members of the Havasupai Tribe. There is a tourits office, post office, market, and lodge at the center, and a smaller store and fast food window at a residence beside the trail as you enter the village from the south. Tourists are required to stay on the main trail and not photograph local people or their residences. The campground is about 2 miles further along the trail.
