Oheo Gulch or popularly known as the Seven Sacred Falls is one of the most known waterfalls on Maui. This
succession of several waterfalls is located downstream of Waimoku Falls. The name of the falls is somewhat
misleading as there isn’t really seven falls and it isn’t really sacred, however, the falls got its name because each
pool is connected by a waterfall which fills the next pool until it empties into the ocean. Probably the ‘sacred’ in
its name is taken from the stunning view which you can enjoy from a short walk through the bamboo forest
leading to the mesmerizing falls.
Getting to the Seven Sacred Falls requires an entrance. And if you want to stay overnight and do star-gazing,
there is an area where you can set up a tent and camp, and again, it requires a camping fee. Since the Seven
