  • This amazing lookout is a place where clouds are always passing. So you'll see lots of clouds. But if weather is good enough, you'll be impressed by the beautiful Kalalau Valley and ocean. When it's cloudy, the longer you can stay at the lookout, the more chance you'll see it clear up. Better bring a jacket since it becomes cold. Sunset from this lookout is also amazing!!!
  • Amazing views - you can easily spend time here admiring the views. There are some trees growing in front of the lookout but still plenty of unobstructed viewing.
  • The entire canyon is beautiful but the view from here is unreal. Be sure to check the weather for a clear day or you will only have a view of clouds, this happened to us a few years back, but this time the weather was perfect.
  • The views of Napali coast and Kalalau are magnificent, if you arrive on a day that has clear weather. Good to say in cabins one or two nights to have better opportunity and to get in more hiking .
  • Dramatic views of the napali cost and it's valley
