The original four-wheel drive tour of the Waipio Valley is what the brochure stated.
We went to the Last Chance Store in Kukuihaele as instructed to book this tour.
It seems as though we should have made reservations because there was no room for us on the next tour. A local fellow offered to take us in his station wagon.
You will get a look at Hawaii's longest unbroken waterfall. Dropping more than 1,000 feet is Hiilawe Falls.
It is said that the harvest god, Lono, found his bride-to-be bathing at the bottom of this fall.
Getting to it is not easy or recommended so it is best to admire from afar.
Waipio is the largest and most important valley in Hawaiian history. As many as 30,000 people once farmed this fertile ground. There are still a few farmers that have taro plots.
There is also a commercial lily pond from which lotus flowers and roots are harvested.
You will also see many wild tropical fruits and blooming flowers.
