A Relaxing Hike Through One of the World’s Rare Cloud Forests

  • Cloud Forest – Embark upon a truly rare and unique ecological adventure.

    On the Big Island of Hawai’i, in the heart of an area known as Kaloko Mauka, is the privately owned 70-acre Kona Cloud Forest Sanctuary. Located fifteen minutes from the Kona-Keahole Airport it is the most accessible cloud forest in Hawai’i.

    Much of the sanctuary is still covered with native plants. In some designated areas of the property, a fascinating environment of non-indigenous plants that are carefully managed have been added, enhancing the variety of fragrance and color.

    The sanctuary abounds with ancient Koa, Ohia, over 100 varieties of bamboo, Orchids and gigantic tree ferns, some of which are 30 feet or more in height. The native forest contains many rare and endangered species which Kona Cloud Forest Sanctuary is committed to protecting.

    It is also home to many endemic and exotic birds, including the Hawaiian Hawk and Honey Creeper. At 3,000 feet elevation directly above the Kona coast, the cloud forest helps supply water to agriculture, golf courses, residences and hotels below.
