#87 of 90, Wailau Valley Taro Cultivation
Restored ancient taro ponds in a remote valley on the backside of Molokai look no different than they would have hundreds of years ago. The stone walls in the area date back 1,100 years and the valley has several springs with some of the cleanest water on Earth. There are few inhabitants today, but the valley supported a large population of early Hawaiians.
