Yesterday, we visited Hanakapi’ai Valley. At the ten mile marker, we’ve literally hit ‘the
end of the road’. We arrived at lovely Ke’e Beach, a lagoon which offers fabulous
swimming and snorkelling opportunities. And it’s where it’s where the Kalalau Trail begins. The entire trail encompasses 11 miles of hills and switchbacks, overlooking stunning scenery, a total of a 5,000 feet elevation.
A challenging hike, the trail is narrow, steep and includes some stream crossings.
The first two miles of the trail encompass a spectacular view taking 1 ½ to 2 hours.
The sacred Kalalau Trail is known for the Earth’s energy vortexes.
We arrived at Hanakapi’ai Beach, and alluring sandy beach – beautiful to marvel at, but with treacherous waters to swim in.
We embark on the next section of trail, a veritable tropical jungle. Along the way, we spot a bamboo thicket with trunking clacking together as wind softly blows.
The highlight of the of the Kalalau Trail is the Hanakapi’ai Falls. It provides a rich reward with a refreshing and magical swim in the pool set amongst lava rocks. Exclusive and sacred, it is a key energetic ‘sweet spot’ on the planet.
