Travel up past the Hilo Medical Center on a narrow two laned windy road and you're here, Boiling Pots. Boiling Pots is extremely beaufitul and dangerous. The reason they call it that is because of its shape and it looks as if it is boiling. It's a terrace of water pools that leads down to Rainbow Falls, a popular tourist stop off. We frequently get many Japanese tourist and in the right light, they appear frightened at the signs posted all over "DANGER". Many have died carelessly by swimming here and getting sucked under the rock bowls.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
