Kipu Falls is a small 25 ft. waterfall located south of Lihue in Puhi, is the most dangerous ‘pool’ ever seen. Locals say it’s either a swim of a lifetime or something that can take your life. Others call it “the pool of death”.
The waterfall is popular because it has a swimming hole and is great for jumping off the falls into the pool or by a rope swing. Kipu Falls can be accessed from a trail alongside Hule’ia Stream, on Kipu Rd. just before the bridge.
