The starting point for many excursions is Alakai natural reserve, a considerable part of which is occupied by vast rainforests. It’s not easy to enter the territory of the reserve, because roads there often turn into rapid mudslides due to abundant rains. Those who manage to get to the reserve would experience unforgettable impressions. Rising to the top of Waialeale with a nature reserve on its slope, you can literally walk through the clouds. There is a magnificent observation deck on top of the mountain.
There is another interesting sight, Fern Grotto , to the east of the island. This grotto, as well as many others, was formed of lava; it’s completely covered with dense thickets of ferns. It resembles an incredibly beautiful and solemn arch; this grotto is a must see place of all excursions.
