    Ka'au Crater Hike

    November 5, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    After we passed 3 waterfalls and climbed the last one we reached the top of the Ka’au Crater and had a 360 ° view. Although there were some clouds we still got to see everything but without the heat.

    Wiliwilinui Ridge Trail

    November 24, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    I went finally hiking again with my two hiking buddies Charly and Michelle. The hike starts in a gated community and on our way back we got picked up up by security while waiting for our Uber. Apparently someone called them cause three “strange” people were sitting on the side of the street 😅. The security guide then told us it’s a super high society neighborhood with mayors and governors etc. The hike however is a short and nice workout to start the day off.Read more

    Ka'au Crater hike

    Very nice 5-hours hike along beautiful waterfalls on top of and around the crater - even good with cloudy weather! Does also involves some climbing and slipping in mud

    Ka'au Crater

    October 24, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 0 °C

    While being on Oahu and enjoying summer, we were up for some hiking. So we looked into some blogs, where we could do a medium-level hike and found the Ka‘au Crater hike. Some people classified it as easy, some as medium. But wow, I think it’s at least medium, if not difficult (and amazing at the same time). We „walked“ through the jungle feeling like Indiana Jones, climbed up waterfalls and along the muddy small crater-ridge (with the help of ropes) - and were rewarded with an incredible view. Seriously! Even though we needed to walk back through the city and had muscle ache for the next three days, I’d definitely do this again. I mean... look at these pictures!!!
    Auf Oahu konnten wir uns ein wenig vom “Reisestress” erholen und den Sommer genießen. Dennoch können weder Nickels noch ich eine ganze Woche lang die Füße still halten, weshalb wir nach ein paar Wanderungen suchten - und die Ka‘au-Krater-Wanderung fanden. Auf manschen Blogs wurde sie als „leicht“ auf anderen als „medium“ eingestuft - ich weiß bis heute nicht wieso. „Mittel“ - okay. Aber leicht war sie auf keinen Fall. Es ging es durch den Dschungel á la Indiana-Jones, dann Wasserfälle hinauf und auf dem schmalen, matschigem Kraterkamm entlang (mit Hilfe von Seilen). Und es war ganz wunderbar (aber nicht „einfach“). Trotz einer weiteren „Wanderung“ wieder zurück zum Hostel und Muskelkater für die nächsten drei Tage, würde ich dort sofort wieder wandern gehen. Ich mein....schaut euch diese Bilder an!!!
