Hawaii received statehood for US in the year 1959. Located in Oceania, it is a state that is made up of islands entirely. Being in the central Pacific Ocean, it is one state that lies beyond the boundaries of North America.
The state is comprised of volcanic islands mainly. There are about hundreds of islands that span 1500 miles. There are eight main islands here that spread from northwest to southeast. Among these Maui and Island of Hawaii are most visited. The diverse scenery of the region, its tropical climate, oceanic landscape, active volcanoes and public beaches are some of the reasons that Hawaii remains a sought after destination for many which include surfers, tourists, volcanologists and biologists. There are diverse cultural and communal influences here from Asians, indigenous Hawaiian tribes and North Americans who are natives of the place. There are about a million or more permanent residents spread out across the islands of this state.
Hawaiian archipelago comprised of volcanic mountains and there are islets and small rocks spread across the islands. The mountains, islets and rock formations are erosional, marine sedimentary and volcanic by nature. The tallest mountain here is Mauna Kea, which is about 13796 ft above sea level; the base of this mountain rises from the Pacific Ocean floor due to which it measures even more than Mount Everest.
For those who wish to have a heart racing adventure in Hawaii will find several Zipline adventure tours waiting for them here. There are daring and longer as well as higher rides as well as some which are easier and gentler. Many originate from rope bridges while others have aerial tree platforms and rappelling included. My cousin, John and his wife Amanda who owns an Albany hair salon, went to Hawaii for their honeymoon and went zip lining. They said it was an amazing experience speeding over the canopy. Jesse, another friend from Upstate NY, owns All Star Pest Solutions, and went here, too with his wife for a trip away from the craziness – they, too, had an amazing time and told us we would have to go the next time we get to the Big Island.
One can try known zip line tours like Keana Farms North Shore adventure, Princeville tour that is found on Kauai Island; there are others like Kualoa ranch adventure, zip lining at the Coral Crater adventure park and so forth.
