OK folks: first of all, get real… Most of these reviews are written by people who flew over. Here’s one from someone who’s hiked it several times.

Wai’ale’ale is the wettest place on earth. The trail is minimal, and crosses the river many times. If the river, floods, which it frequently does, those crossings become manifestly dangerous, especially at,& below the slot, canyon, which comprises the middle 1/3 of the trail.

Getting to the trail head is extremely challenging in and of itself. A four-wheel-drive with good clearance and expert driving skills is absolutely required. Expect to put some damage on your car in the process: you will be driving through a river, through a pond, and over a deeply-rutted road which becomes a river in heavy rain. If you want to walk an extra 5 miles each way, you can park at the Arboretum and avoid damaging your vehicle.

Expect to get wet. And muddy. Bring Tabis. If you’re used to hiking barefoot, wool socks will help you stick to the slippery rocks when in the river. Resistance to rain is useless: you’re going to get wet. So for gear, I usually hike this trail in a bathing suit. Everything in your pack should be in a Ziploc bag and you don’t need to bring water, but a life straw is a good idea.

Pick your day wisely. The ideal day to hike Wai’ale’ale is cloudless & rainy days should be avoided… If it’s raining a little at the coast, it’s dumping in Wai’ale’ale. And hiking Wai’ale’ale in heavy rain is not fun… very dangerous, cold, no view.

Start extremely early. This way you’ll have time to jump in some of the innumerable gorgeous pools that line your route. Go in with an attitude of reverence… this is Sacred land, and you are blessed to have the opportunity to gently explore it. She is incredibly powerful, treat her like a goddess she is.

The trail is difficult to find. In particular, River crossings can be challenging to identify recently someone scratched all the rocks in the trail. There are places where you will need to step on a very particular rock in order to make safe progress… those are currently marked to anyone who has a really sharp eye. But if you’ve never gone before, then I highly recommend going with someone who has or an expert guide.

If your hiking skills are less than excellent or you have significant health problems, this is not the hike for you. If it was a ski slope, it would be rated black diamond.

Enjoy 🙏

Este é um bônus do passeio de helicóptero pela ilha de Kauai. Nem sempre as condições climáticas permitem, pois lembre-se que este é um dos pontos mais chuvosos do planeta. Mas quando é possível, o piloto te coloca dentro da cratera deste vulcão extinto, com dezenas de cachoeiras escorrendo a água que cai quase constantemente nessa montanha. O passeio de helicóptero é caro, mas é a única maneira de acessar pontos fantásticos de Kauai.

We set off in search of the blue hole hike to the weeping wall with very unclear directions...not truly knowing how hard this was going to be. Fortunately we were able to drive all the way up the the river that leads you in but the ride wasnt easy to navigate and took us quite a while. By the time we got to the river it was noon and we were still a 3 hour hike away from the wall!! We hiked about a mile upstream when it started raining!! We decided to take a dip in the river and turn back because floods here can be unpredictable. I'm super stoked we made it as far as we did & stumbled upon the Jurrasic Park gates in the process!! Awesome adventure!!

I had a wonderful time hear with my husband on our honeymoon. We had a romantic helicopter ride around the island and got to see the misty airs and Mt. Waialeale close up. I recommend it was great fun!

We were fortunate to have good weather and no rain during a helicopter tour and flew into the old crater of Mt Waialeale.

It is impressive with the many narrow waterfalls that cascade down 3000+ feet of the mountain, it’s so-called ‘Wall of Tears’.

On an island as varied and naturally stunning as Kauai, this is amongst the highlights for us!

We had to park along the road before the main parking lot as it was pretty full when we arrived in the afternoon. We had to walk a bit to get to the top. A lot of greenery that the wettest place on earth is famous for! We could see the approaching rain clouds from up there, so didn't spend too much time here, and hurried back to the car after a quick look around. There are trails that you can take; make sure that you are dressed appropriately for the hike!

Mount Waialeale is in the center of the island of Kauai, and the top is seldom visible from the valleys and beaches below, due to the near constant cloud cover at the top. The best views are from helicopter island tours that fly around and over the island. With an elevation of just over 5,200 feet, the rising warm and moist air from the island condenses in the cooler area at the top of the mountain and creates a wet tropical mini climate where rain is nearly constant. Rain totals measure over 450 inches annually. The result is lush and tropical growth around the mountain, and water runoff and waterfalls through the Hanalei River to the north, which empties into the Hanalei Bay. It's an amazing ecosystem and ecological gem of the island.

Mt. Waialeale is almost never seen from the resort and beach areas. It is almost always shrouded in clouds that produce rain and making it the wettest spot on earth. Most people view it via helicopter, or you can try Puu O Kila lookout. Early hours are usually the best. The clouds usually roll in late morning and early afternoon. If you are really adventurous there are trails from the lookout that take you through Alakai Swamp to Mt. Waialeale. I have heard people say that this is an amazing hike, but it is slippery and you will get wet.

It is not often that the mountain is visible as it is most often covered in clouds. That is how is gets the reputation for one of the wettest spots on Earth. The mountain gets between 400 and 600 inches of rain per year with a reported average of 454 inches. The best way to really see the mountain is to take a helicopter tour of the island. Otherwise it can sometimes be seen from Puuo Kila Lookout at the top of Waimea Canyon.
