Waipi’o Valley is definitely a glimpse of Hawaii’s big island, a land of peach blossoms near the sea at the island’s northeastern tip. Self-driving tourists can only reach Waipo ‘o Valley Lookout on the top of the mountain. In order to go deep into the Valley, they must pass a one-lane road with an Angle of 25 degrees, although it is only 0.6 mile. Excellent technology is necessary for four-wheel-drive vehicles. The friend that wants to go down really, still have a kind of method, can choose to walk along this road to the valley bottom namely, not far, but the road is bad to walk.
we did not go down with the children, for the view above had fascinated everyone, and it was a pleasure to see it. Waipi ‘o Valley was once the residence of an island king. Waipi ‘o means “curved water” in Hawaiian. It hides some of the island’s most beautiful waterfalls. In the map above, you can clearly see the location of the top Waipi’o Valley. The waipio valley, on the windswept side of the kohala mountains, offers a unique view of Hawaii: white waterfalls cascading almost vertically from emeralt-colored cliffs, jungles, flowering plants and ancient taro fields at the bottom, black sand beaches and waves lapping against the shoreline.

layers of blue together here. It is said that most of the inhabitants here are aborigines, who are self-sufficient in agricultural products and mainly grow taro. There are only about 2,000 indigenous people. In 1946, the tsunami inundated entire valleys and villages, and the excessive rain prevented tourism and investment in golf courses. Enjoy the drizzle, let the sound of waterfall, birds, with the breeze and nature blend one.

Our own Milky Way galaxy is thought to be at the centre of the whole of Laniakea. The Milky Way is surrounded by thousands of celestial objects that correspond to the Milky Way. The brighter stars in the Milky Way are called stars. & have spent & have spent To make it easier to identify the large number of stars in the sky, astronomers have artificially divided the sky into regions, each of which is called a constellation. The naming of constellations is entirely artificial. Many constellations are the names given by the ancient greeks after they got drunk. Many constellations are the names of animals or the figures in Greek mythology, among which the big dipper, the most famous star, is called the constellation Ursa major. The small shop of
