Heiau-Pololu Valley Lookout-King Kamehameha Statue-On Big Island, Hawaii-UHD 4K


This video shows the Puukohola Heiau, the Pololu Valley Lookout and the king Kamehameha Statue. This National Historic Site is home to one of the largest restored heiau (temple) in Hawaii and is part of the National Park System. Heiau were sacred places of worship for Native Hawaiians, and Puukohola Heiau was a site built to fulfill a historic prophecy.

There is limited parking at the Pololu valley lookout, just park along the road as you come to the overlook. A great view from up top, but don’t miss the steep hike down into the valley. The ocean is magnificent at the bottom. You will miss the King Kamehameha Statue before finding it.

The Big Island is the largest and the southeastern-most of the Hawaiian islands, a chain of volcanic islands in the North Pacific Ocean. With an area of 4,028 square miles (10,430 km2), it is larger than all of the other islands in the archipelago combined and is the largest island in the United States.

Kauai Wailua River Kayak-Mud Hike-Secret Falls-HD 4K

We started by loading the kayak on top of the car and driving to the public access launch point. The Wailua river is wide where it meets the ocean with a weak current so paddling upriver presents no problem. A little ways up, it narrows down, and is quiet and very beautiful. You may leave your kayak and hop up at any spot that appeals to you along the way, but you should take the hike to the Secret Falls. If you just paddle up the river, you can’t miss the wide area on the right-hand bank where you can pull up your kayak and find the trail.

The hike was fun, but not easy: up, up, up, through mud, mud, and more mud. Besides the mud, we caught a few brief rain showers as well. Still, it was worth every bit of the trouble. For the first time ever, I was standing under a 100-foot waterfall. The water was pounding onto my head and back like a barrage of paintballs. This is the Secret Falls on Kauai Island in Hawaii.
