Чем вы займетесь

The historic coast of Wailua and Kapaa is a dramatic backdrop for the powerful hiking experience of our 3 hour Sleeping Giant hike. We will meet at the Sleeping Giant trail head right after day break and begin the ascent. I will point out key plants and trees along the way, discussing the importance of conserving native plants and the impact of invasive species on the environment and modern landscape.

I’ll outline a concise history of the neighboring Wailua River Valley and the Royal Coconut Coast (of Kapaa) and highlight the cultivation of taro, yams, and bananas, as well as the later industries of rice, sugar and pineapple. Insightful stories inspired with funky characters will entertain and educate.

As we hike up, I’ll point out landmarks such as Kong Mountain, aka Kalalea, that has long been believed to be the spot where new souls enter the world—the Dalai Lama himself stated this on a visit in the 90s. We will be surrounded by ironwood, guava and oak trees, ferns and invasive vines. I’ll share the quick history of these along the way.

Near the summit, I’ll tell the story of Nounou, the Sleeping Giant, who ventured out and ate so much that he fell asleep, his body becoming the mountain range we climb.

At the summit, we will take a long break, taking in the incredible vistas, having a newfound understanding of East Side Kauai and it’s important lands and coast!

I’m an avid hiker and nature lover with professional guiding experience and a deep passion for Hawaiian ecology, culture, history, geology and botany. I’ve lived on three Hawaiian islands, have immersed myself in local culture, and understand and speak local creole—aka Hawaiian Pidgin—as well as can translate cultural norms. I have led hundreds of American and international tourists on Hawaiian adventures and focus on local history, current events and fun facts, and know of dozens of local, insider spots to visit! My hiking experiences focus on wild foods and foraging as well as current island sustainability trends.

Где вы побываете

We will climb to the summit until we reach the picnic shelter where we can choose to rest right on the Sleeping Giant’s chest, or we can keep going to climb onto the Sleeping Giant’s face, depending on hikers’ preferences. If we’re lucky, we will take in views of Mt. Waialeale crater that’s often covered in clouds. Beautiful views of Wailua River Valley, Kalepa Ridge and the coast will create a near 360 degreee experience!
