Description

Covered with lush vegetation, the island of Kauai is a kind of green temple of the Pacific. The fingers of nature have enough time to penetrate deeply into the oldest island in Hawaii, cut incredibly beautiful fluted cliffs on the coast, Na-Pali, and a huge, deep rugged canyon Waimea.
Waimea Canyon, also known as the Grand Canyon of the Pacific, is a large canyon, approximately ten miles (16 km) long and up to 3,000 feet (900 m) deep, located on the western side of Kau'i in the Hawaiian Islands of the United States. Waimea is Hawaiian for "reddish water", a reference to the erosion of the canyon's red soil. The canyon was formed by a deep incision of the Waimea River arising from the extreme rainfall on the island's central peak, Mount Wai'ale'ale, among the wettest places on earth.
