  1. Love Hamama, though when I went it was a little dryer than what I’ve seen in these photos and others. Maybe I’ll go back after a good rain as there’s still another waterfall to see off the main trail called Waihee Falls. It’s supposed to be pretty as well.

    Aloha and thanks again for sharing these wonderful photos.

    • Hey Punynari, yup, we were actually supposed to go looking for Waihee Falls too on the way back from Hamama. We found the junction one the way up and then when we were coming down from Hamama we forgot all about the second falls! Oh well, gives another reason to go back!
