The Amazing Beauty of Na Pali Coast, Hawaii

When I was watching Jurassic Park I was wonder where is that beautiful place, is it exist and real? And I was thinking too that the setting place for taking Jurassic movie is only animation, but when I read that place really exist in this world make me want to know more about this place. So where is it? Maybe I late for this information but I still want to share about this place in here.
The amazing beauty of Na Pali along the shore of Kauai, Hawaii, and the rugged coastline will give the visitor unforgettable adventure. Na Pali means “the Cliffs” and those characteristic sheer cliffs which drop 4,000 feet (1200 m) straight down into the ocean make much of Na Pali Coast inaccessible by car. Nā Pali Coast State Park has 6,175 acres and stretches for 16 rugged miles along the northwest side of Kauai paradise. Honopū Valley has been made iconic from movies filmed on Na Pali. After seeing the pictures many times and decide to make the post in here then I know the reason why many people told that Hawaii is so beautiful place. Ok... here are photo collection of Na Pali along the shore of Kauai, Hawaii, and the rugged coastline, hope you enjoy.... (courtesy
Nā Pali Coast's view from the ocean 
“Nā Pali Coast State Park encompasses 6,175 acres (2,499 ha) of land and is located in the center of the rugged 16 miles (26 km) along the northwest side of Kauaʻi, the oldest inhabited Hawaiian island.” This rugged coastline on the shore of Kauai literally means “the Cliffs. (this picture make interest to know more about this place)”
Honopū Valley, aerial view. Wikipedia reports, “No landing of any aircraft or boat is allowed in Honopū Valley or on its beach, so visitors must swim from an offshore boat or from neighboring Kalalau Beach. The valley, because of the mystery surrounding the exodus of the people who lived there until the mid-19th century, is sometimes called ‘The Valley of the Lost Tribe.’ In 1922, visiting archaeologists found several skulls thought to be primitive, pre-Hawaiian people. Later studies of the valley and its artifacts determined all of its residents were clearly Hawaiian, but the erroneous legend endures.”
Ruggedly beautiful Nā Pali Coast State Park and famous-in-films Honopū Valley. “Aircraft and boats that are part of Hollywood film productions are the only ones allowed in Honopū Valley. Honopū Valley is perhaps most famous for its appearances in the 1976 remake of King Kong and in the 1998 movie Six Days Seven Nights. In the 1976 remake of King Kong the beaches and jungles of Kauai, Hawaii were made to stand in for South Pacific…The producers and production crew of King Kong were told that Honopū Valley was uninhabited, but on the day that they arrived to start filming, they were shocked to find honeymooners on the beach. Scenes that involved filming in the ocean were hard to film due to the 12-foot-high waves. Most of the crew got seasick and one filming boat almost capsized. Examples of involved scenes are when the party arrive on Skull Island and the nighttime arrival to rescue Dawn; other scenes are the arrival of equipment to capture King Kong and Fred Wilson directing the rescue mission…For the film Six Days Seven Nights Hawaii was made to stand in for French Polynesia. Among the scenes filmed on Honopū Beach is the one where Harrison Ford runs from pirates. The arch is also included in the film. Other Hollywood movies with filmed in Honopū Valley are Honeymoon in Vegas, Acapulco Gold, and Raiders of the Lost Ark.”

The Kalalau Trail which DailyVenture described as “Coming around the bend is Hanakapi’ai Beach then Ke’e Beach where the road ends (or begins, from our point of view). This is also the trailhead of the Kalalau Trail. Winding along the cliffs, through valleys and over streams, the Kalalau Trail is a rugged 11-mile (18 km) trek to Kalalau Beach. It takes 4 – 8 hours to do it, depending on speed and experience. In certain aerial photos the trail is visible, razor-sliced into the ridges in bright red strokes.”
