Hawaii’s Weeping Wall Is The Most Majestic Waterfall You’ll Ever See

Hawaii is undoubtedly a magical land full of unsurpassed natural beauty, and some of the most breathtaking waterfalls in the world. And while we love Hawaii Islands Akaka Falls, and the two waterfalls found on Maui’s Pipiwai Trail as much as the next person, there is one waterfall that stands out in a crowd — or rather, is the crowd. Deep in the heart of Kauai is the epic Weeping Wall, a collection of stunning waterfalls cascading down the towering, verdant cliffs of Mount Waialeale, one of the wettest spots on earth.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!

Still not 100 percent sure that Kauai’s Weeping Wall is the coolest waterfall ever? I’m pretty sure that this incredible footage, uploaded by Vimeo user Hawaii Revealed, will convince you.

I don’t think a more gorgeous waterfall exists anywhere on this incredible planet we call home, but here are the 14 tallest waterfalls in the state, and these 12 waterfall hikes should definitely be added to your Hawaii bucket list. What is your favorite Hawaiian waterfall? Is it one you can hike to or do you need to charter a helicopter to experience it in person? Share your thoughts with us in the comments below!

Hawaii Waterfalls

April 24, 2020

What is the tallest Hawaii waterfall?

Measuring in at a whopping 2,953 feet tall, Oloupena Falls is not only the tallest Hawaii waterfall but is also considered to be the fourth tallest waterfall in the entire world. It’s tucked away on the remote northern coast of Molokai, flows seasonally, and is only visible from the ocean or the air.

Which Hawaiian Island has the most waterfalls? 

While each of the main Hawaiian Island is home to cascading waterfalls, there is perhaps nowhere will you find a greater selection of easy-to-find falls than off Maui’s notorious Hana Highway. In fact, we even created a waterfall road trip that meanders down this well-known highway and stops at nine waterfalls in just 44 miles. And who knows, you may just spot another waterfall or two along the way worthy of pulling over for. Don’t forget your camera!

What are the best waterfall hikes in Hawaii? 

It’s true that while you’ll find several Hawaii waterfalls hiding in plain sight — no hiking required — there are even more that are found off-the-beaten-path and only accessible via hiking trails. The trail to Hawaii Island’s famous 442-foot Akaka Falls is short and sweet, and though short in stature, Waimea Falls on the island of Oahu is not only tucked away in a picturesque botanical garden but you can actually swim there. We’re also secretly obsessed with Kauai’s Uluwehi Falls, which requires not only a hike but a kayak excursion as well.
