When the soft sunshine passes through the lush mango forest and shines on the waterfall, the waterfall falls down from the cliff into the clear pool, and the rising mist is light, like the veil floating gently with the wind, forming a wonderful rainbow under the refraction of the sunshine. So it's called Rainbow Falls. It's drizzling today, and we can't see the rainbow at all. It's a pity. Slowly descend the mountain along the ornamental trail. Turning to the bottom of the waterfall, I felt that the water volume of the waterfall was not small, and fell in the deep pool with white mist. Ear-shaking waves echo in the dense jungle, the magnificent momentum is amazing. The water in the pool slowly flows into the winding canyon, moistening the dense forests on both sides.
Rainbow Falls is one of the highlights of the island. As it is close to the city and airport, every visitor to Hiro will visit it. The waterfall is 51 meters high and 24 meters low. Hidden in layers of verdant tropical plants. However, it was disappointing to be on the spot. First, in terms of momentum, not to mention the Niagara Falls on the US-Canada border, even the Huangguoshu Falls in China are not up to it. Second, there is no rainbow in the waterfall. The tour guide explained that it was a misunderstanding that there was a rainbow in the waterfall. In fact, the rainbow and the waterfall should be looked at separately. It didn't rain today, and there was no rainbow in all the surrounding skies. But Rainbow Waterfall is a magic waterfall. If you look at the middle of the waterfall, the ground will rise at the point where the water column falls. So locals call it "a magical waterfall".
Rainbow Falls is close to the town of Shiloh. It is said that only 20% of the people can see the rainbow. Besides the light and angle, there are weather conditions for rain to pass through the sunshine. Although it is rainy in Shilo, they can only see the rainbow by luck. Passing through the parking lot, you can see the nameplate of the scenic spot set off by the bright egg flower. The waterfall itself is not very good, and along the trail you can reach the rubble beach upstream of the waterfall. From the warning signs, this side is strictly prohibited, but the banyan forest at the end of the waterfall should be the exception. The banyan forest is not big, but several old branches and branches are intertwined to form a closed space, giving a sense of suffocation.
Rainbow Falls & Rainbow Falls, located in Shiloh, is known by its name as Rainbow Falls. The most beautiful moment here is that the rainbow will appear at the waterfall (famous for the beautiful rainbow formed by the sunshine refraction of the fog of the waterfall). Unfortunately, the rainfall during this period is not enough, and the flow of the waterfall itself is very ordinary, so even the rainbow can not be seen. And the short-sighted hiking passage in the figure below has been closed. The hint is that it will take several days to open. It's worth mentioning Rainbow Falls, a cave here that used to be a passage for volcanic magma flows, has now been blocked. It is said that Kamehameha, the first king of Hawaii, buried his father's dead here.
