Na Pali

Na Pali

The Nuuanu Pali (cliff) overlooks 985 foot cliffs of the Ko’olau Mountain Range and is one of the best views on O'ahu. It was here in 1795 that King Kamehameha and his warriors defeated the O'ahu armies by sending them over these steep, forested cliffs and claiming his victory.

The Ko'olau Mountains are just high enough to cause clouds and dump their moisture on the windward side. Clouds are forming on the peak.
