An incredible adventure with shuttle service through the Valley to the awe-inspiring Manoa Falls
Description / Overview: This Oahu waterfalls hiking tour includes a shuttle from your Waikiki hotel to the Rainforest with round-trip service. The driver provides you with a bottle of water and some bug spray. The beginning of the trail crosses over a footbridge and then crosses a small stream through a grove of Eucalyptus trees, the trail gradually ascends through a lush rainforest ending at a viewing area set back from the base of the falls. Another factor that makes the Falls trail a favorite hiking destination for many, is the 150-ft. (46 m) waterfall that awaits after a relatively easy 45-minute walk up the mountain! The water cascades down from the mountain into a small pool at the end of the waterfall, creating a perfect background for pictures!
Trail Conditions: This hike is located in a beautiful lush valley and hikers may often experience rainy weather. The trail is not paved but is covered in stones. Some parts might get a little muddy or slippery, adding extra excitement to your adventure, but don’t worry! We provide walking sticks for extra support. Ponchos are also available for purchase with your driver. Expect some sections with stairs and a few parts where you have to climb up over boulders.
Inclusions: Round-trip transportation from Waikiki, bug spray, and a bottle of water.
As a courtesy reminder please do not eat food in our shuttle and/or bring any drinks to be consumed inside.
What to Bring & What to Wear: You can wear sneakers and comfortable clothes that you wouldn’t mind getting muddy.
Additional Information: In case there is rain we have ponchos for purchase for $5. At the hike, there are snacks at the gift shop, where the bathrooms are also located.
Pro Tip: Even though it looks inviting, it is not recommended to swim in it because of the many risks of rock sliding/falling, which have occurred in this area. Also, it isn’t safe to drink the water because of leptospirosis contamination.
