WAIPI'O VALLEY

is one of the most ravishingly beautiful valleys in the world. Route 240 ends at an overlook that amazes with its views of towering cliffs, waterfalls, black beaches, and lush green fields. Waipio is home to plantings of taro, fiddlehead ferns and few who are relucant to leave. Wreaked by tidal waves, much of Waipio's inhabitants have left and horses roam free. For a closer look at the valley, call from the overlook for a ride down in a 4-wheel drive. Do not attempt this in a rental car, the road is too steep and in very bad condition. You can hike down, it's just over one mile, but remember, you'll probably have to hike back up.

    I've hiked down into Waipio Valley and it was SOOOOOOO steep hiking back out - it was worth it, though!

    I would like to ride a horse, never mind to become wet. And to ride to the fortune-teller :-))
