Oahu’s north-shore is rich with enviornmental diversity from mauka to makai (mountain to sea). Unfortunately many miss out on cultural elements that amplify the area’s beauty. Even fewer take part under the guidance of a Kumu (teacher). If you have ever dreamed of bathing in a mountain pool under a cascading waterfall in Hawai’i, here is your opportunity. Imagine coming upon a beautiful waterfall as we walk through a lush valley. Add the joy of learning a hula dance and making a beautiful flower lei as we show you the way. This walk story begins and ends at Waimea Falls, on the North Shore of Oahu.
