This amazing natural wonder is considered one of the Grand Canyon’s best-kept secrets. Elves Chasm is a beautiful shaded grotto with a luscious waterfall. After tying up your raft at the Royal Arch Creek drainage on the Colorado River, you hike up the drainage preforming a few slippery, slithery moves to reach this wonder of the Grand Canyon. There is a cave-like climb up into the waterfall and a spot that you jump from but be very careful.
