Waipio Valley Lookout - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT
This is much more impressive in real life than this panoramic picture shows. The colours are amazing. The road down is very steep, it feels like a 1:1 gradient as you walk down to Waipio Valley itself. Having driven a few hours to get here we were keen to start off towards the Hiilawe Falls. The hill was not so appealing at the end of the day coming back up though. Verdict - Waipio Valley is stunning and deserves more than a week, let alone a day, to explore.
