Hawaii tunnelsTill date, Hawaii has continued to woo tourists by its unique flavors of the Hula dances, spectacular beaches and whale-watching activities. Now, it has something more to offer to its visitors.

 

Tourists who are turned on by the rush of adrenaline in their veins would now be capable of enjoying a lazy river-ride through 150-year-old tunnels in this region.

 

These tunnels had been built quite a long time ago, during the 1800’s by plantation workers, with an aim to irrigate the sugar cane crops. It is indeed a broad network of tunnels.

 

In the year 2000, sugar was no longer cultivated on the Lihue Plantation. This is the reason why the tunnels ceased to be of any proper significance for the plantations of sugar cane.

 

Therefore Kauai Backcountry Adventures started taking access of the beautiful system of tunnels, and transformed it into a majestic lazy river ride. The water that start close to the top of Mount Waialeale are channeled through ditches and tunnels that has been dug out by hand in 1870.

Tourists would not be able to enjoy floating along the waterways in an inflatable tube.

 

Thereafter, they would pass through long tunnels that are lighted up only by the light of the headlamps on the visitors. This water system runs through a few of the most remote landscapes on the island. And so, tourists would be treated to some breathtaking views of the Waialeale Crater and the surrounding mountain ranges.
