Hi'ilawe Falls in Waipio Valley
Hi'ilawe Falls, the crown jewel of sacred Waipi'o Valley. The legends agreed that once upon a time a young couple - Hi'ilawe and Kakalaoa were hiding in this valley from the god Lono who wanted to separate them during his search for Hi'ilawe - his intended bride. The young people decided that they would stay together forever and threw themselves over the cliffs edge. As they fell Hi'ilawe turned into a giant waterfall, while Kakalaoa transformed into an enormous boulder, landing at the base of the falls. Hi'ilawe is permanently weeping its tears on Kakalaoa. #travel I #adventure I #explore I #hawaii
