Big Island Ground Tour

Stop 5: Waipio Valley

Waipio Valley is one of the centers of settlement of the early Hawaiians, and taro is still grown on the valley floor. Frequently cloud-covered due to the trade winds bringing moisture in off the sea as they hit the windward side of Kohala volcano, Waipio Valley is one of the few parts of the Big island that are rarely seen in satellite images.
