Akaka Falls Rainbow

Located 12 miles north of Hilo and just above the sleepy town of Honomu, ‘Akaka Falls is the breathtaking reward for a short but mildly arduous hike through a lush, tropical rainforest. Free-falling 442 feet, the Kolekole Stream creates a spectacular scene against the sheer vertical walls of its gorge, ending in a misty explosion in the pool below. The early morning sunlight adds a touch of color and texture, casting deep shadows and a faint double rainbow.
