The Wettest Place On Planet Earth Is Right Here In Hawaii And You Need To Visit

The beautiful Hawaiian Islands are known for tropical weather, awe-inspiring beaches, and sunny skies – but the islands receive a great deal of rain, depending on where you go. For an almost-guaranteed rainy experience, head inland on Kauai, where the lush, emerald Mount Waialeale, one of the wettest places on the planet, rises more than 5,000 feet into the sky and is covered by an ever-present blanket of clouds.

The best way to experience the beauty that is Mount Waialeale is by helicopter tour, or hiking the nearby Alakai Swamp Trail. For other trails and information, check out Waialeale.org.
