Just minutes away from the bustling state capital of Honolulu – but still within the city limits – is the lush Manoa Valley. This residential area is home to the University of Hawaii at Manoa, receives almost daily rain, and was the site of the first sugarcane and coffee plantations in the Hawaiian Islands. Hidden deep within Manoa Valley, in the middle of the forest, is a spot similar to one you would find in a horror movie, and one of the most haunted places in Hawaii. Check it out — if you dare.
