Our tour guide Garry was informative telling is all about the plant life & more. The waterfalls were beautiful and the hike wasn't too hard. Riding in the 6 wheel Australian army vehicle was the best for me as a off road lover.

Well organized tour. Amazing experience to be so high up above the clouds. Breathing felt a little different, because of the lack of oxygen. Spectacular sunset. Amazing views. Very, very cold. But all worth it.

Hawaii Forest and trail is the tour company, you can book direct. They will cater the walks depending on the group on the day. It's about $100 per person including lunch and diner.
