MUST WATCH: A Real Video Of Stairways To Heaven!

A+ A-

The Haiku Stairs also known as the Stairways to Heaven is a steep hiking trail on the island of O'ahu, Hawaii. It has 3,922 steps span along Oahu's Ko'olau mountain range. 

In 1942, contractors for the United States Navy began construction of the Ha'iku Radio Station. This is the top secret facility that was to be used to transmit radio signal to the Navy Ships. In order to obtain the necessary height for the antennae, the Navy stretched them across Haiku Valley, a natural amphitheater surrounded by high ridges. To accomplish this, they needed easy access to the top of the ridges, so they made a wooden ladder up the mountain. 

In 1950's, the Naval base was decommissioned and the United States Coast Guard used the site for an Omega Navigation System station. In the mid- 1950's, the wooden stairs were replaced by metal steps. The station and trail were closed to the public in 1987 but the hikers ignore the "No Tresspassing" signs and continue to climb. 
Watch the video below to see the astounding view from the top.


Until now, the Haiku Stairs is not open to the public, although there are a lot of illegal hikers are enjoying the wild and dangerous climbing.
