Can be viewed from the Puu O Kila lookout across the Alakai Swamp, provided it is not covered in clouds. At the Puu O Kila lookout there is a directional sign pointing towards Wai'aleale. There is also a trail that leads from this lookout to Wai'aleale
We were able to see the crater of Waialeale from a helicopter, but I'm told there are also hiking trails for the younger and braver to experience this wonder! The walls of the crater are a continuous line of towering waterfalls fed by the more or less constant rain at the top! A misty, but amazing sight to see!!
Awesome site on the north side of Kauai. Been to the mountain many times, but you really need to take a helicopter ride to see the true beauty of the mountain with literally hundreds of waterfalls cascading down the steep cliffs all around.
