This is so much more than a hike to a waterfall. Anakala Pilipo Solatorio was 7 years old when the 1946 tsunami hit Halawa. You share a Honi ceremony (Hawaiian breath exchanging) before he tells you the history and culture of the valley from his own personal experiences. His son leads the hike to the falls. No offense but all the other guides do not include the cultural part and are just hikes to a waterfall.
Such a wonderful time learning from Father and Son about the Halawa Valley, its history, its culture, its way of life today, how to identify trees without looking at leaves, and learning to love this valley on Molokai that many may never see. Am glad there is a documentary being made to let others know of this unique place and where it fits into the greater global picture of ohana.
it will be worth your time to take this hike
