Outside the National Park, 250 miles from the South Rim at the canyon’s western end, you’ll find the Havasupai Indian Reservation with its beautiful waterfalls and the Hualapai Tribe’s Skywalk. This horseshoe-shaped glass and steel walkway projects 70 feet (21 m) from the canyon rim. Two other attractions worth visiting, both a two-and-a-half-hour drive from South Rim, are:
