Kauai, Hawaii. Geologically the oldest Hawaiian islands, Kauai fascinates with the amazing scenery. At 1,598 m (5,243 ft) high Kawaikini is the tallest peak on the volcanic island, which is also known as the Garden Isle due to the lush vegetation and green landscape. Some of the most exciting hiking trails are found here.
There are various peaks, suitable for the beginners and professionals. Sleeping Giant is easy to reach, while Haupu is visited by a very few adventurers. Kalalau Trail on a dramatic Na Pali coast is a challenging and difficult one, but is very scenic and leads to a striking Kalalau Valley, that can be reached only by hiking or kayaking. However, most of the other sites – canyons, parks, beaches – are easily accessed by car.
Why to go there?

When to go there?
Anytime, although brief rain is very common here.
