Waimea Valley #Hawaii Edition
A world of colors, natures soundtrack and the unrealness of tropical perfection is how we will remember Waimea Valley and the Falls aka Waihi Falls.
Located on the North Shore of Oahu facing Waimea Bay, Hawaiians believe the reddish waters, coloured by iron oxide, have healing powers and used to take wounded soldiers there. Also this is where a number of movies filmed their tropical scenes, Lost, Fantasy Island and George of the Jungle to name a few.
As we entered the park, we were momentarily greeted by a world of fauna. Unimaginably co-habitating worlds of trees, flowers and wildlife.
We found plants from New Guinea, Guam, Fiji and Madagascar to say the least.
We seriously felt like we have entered someone's personal heaven, a dome-like sky covered with leafage and wild roosters roaming the grounds. This is 3/4 mile of a trek to it's main destination, the falls. And once arrived, all we could do is: stare.
