In contrast to most forests, which are watered by rain, a cloud forest receives as much as 40% of its precipitation from moisture that condenses on the leaves of trees from mist and clouds that move through these upland forests. On the slopes of the Haulalai Volcano, you will walk through this amazing forest that almost seems to appear out of nowhere. On your way there, you will hike through fields of lava and scrubland. As you approach it, more vegetation and trees start to appear. Continuing further, you suddenly find you’re in a what seems like a magical forest.
The Kona Cloud Forest is a riotous explosion of green, a chilly jungle at 1,000 feet. Statuesque blue marble Rudraksh trees from India, Chinese bamboo, sprawling green fronds from Africa and even an old Ficus houseplant mingle with endemic species found in other more familiar Hawaii landscapes —flowering ohia, squat and endangered loulu palm and the unfurling fronds of hapuu, the native Hawaiian tree fern. The result is a breathtaking array of colors and textures, a verdant oasis in the midst of a volcanic landscape. It is this juxtaposition makes this trek so special.
