Alright, you must visited Florida, New York and other stunning modernized cities in the United States of America. In these cities, it looks as if heaven has come down on earth because of the type of civilization that has come to these places. For someone who is coming from a less developed country, these cities are simply heavens on earth. Does it mean that everywhere in America is developed? We would be taking you to an Indian village that is hidden within the Grand Canyon. It is eight miles from the nearest road.

It is eight miles from any close road and the rugged terrain is what makes it a bit difficult to use a car to visit.  This is why mule has become the closet friend to those who are coming here. Supai is concealed at the bottom of Havasu Canyon, in the heart of the Havasupai Nation reservation. It was in 1975 that this picturesque destination was claimed by the Havasupai tribe from the National Park rangers after many court battles.
