Manoa Falls

On Tuesday we took a tour through one of the many sections of rain forest in Hawaii that lead to Manoa Falls. Manoa Falls is a amazing site as it tumbles down a near vertical cliff for approximately 150-feet into a small pool. The hike to the falls is stated to be easy but during our tour we noticed several people giving up and heard the news that a tourist had fallen off one of the many cliff edges last week. Thankfully that person is still here. The trail travels through a bamboo forest, rainforest, and base of the Ko'oaus Mountains. The trail is approximately a 1 ½ mile hike, but we were lucky enough to experience another trail that took us further in and up.

It as also during the hike that we found a base of the Kukui (candlenut), most people will know them from the many bracelets etc.. that have become famous throughout the world. I will be posting about this at a later date, so enjoy the pictures for now!
