Where you'll be

Take in beautiful ʻŌpaekaʻa Falls then hike gorgeous Kuilau Ridge for possible views of majestic Mount Waiʻaleʻale - dubbed "the wettest place on earth" (with over 450" of annual rainfall some years). After our hike we will have the opportunity to view a tall grove of colorful rainbow Eucalyptus, take a dip in Keahua Stream, and perhaps visit a rare rudraksha tree forest/stone Ganesha statue that is part of a Hindu Monastery.
