Kauai - Another World

Drenched with about 500 inches of rainfall every year, Kauai’s Mount Waialeale is considered one of the rainiest locations our world has to offer and hosts the “Wall of Tears.” It’s named for featuring thin, long waterfalls inside a crater wall of dense foliage. The spot isn’t easily accessed, so helicopters fly over and around the region to catch a glimpse of its beauty. The extreme precipitation routinely blocks visibility with clouds that hug the landscape tightly. But as you can see here, few photographers got lucky during their helicopter rides, giving us a peek at phenomenal Hawaiian tropical scenery.
