it's full of natural local plants and trees on the trail. It can be used as a quick stop and short walk for changing the pace. It is more like a wayside scenic park. Only takes a half hour to complete the whole trail.

When we came here, they were renovating, so a lot of trails were closed. Locals and tourists come to swim in the river, with their floaties. It was great to see the mountains, green nature, there were clear signs of where to go on the...More

Not much to do here but inhale the fresh air , admire natural scenery and cool your feet in the stream.

Went here when it was raining slightly. The mist gave the area a great aura! They have walkways and areas for vistas.

After visiting the Needle viewpoint, follow the trail back down the hill and take the trail to the bottom by the stream, this is a great place to wander around and see the bottom of the valley. The stream can be entered but there are...More

I should start by saying that this isn't a huge park, so you won't be here for more than an hour or two. There are some side trails you can take, but I think that's frowned upon with the recent flooding. After you pay $5...More

I am sure there are tours from the cruise ship to Iao. If not then you would need to either rent a car or take a taxi. Not aware of any public transport bus that goes into Iao Valley.
