Haiku - Stairway to heaven in Hawaii 2

Haiku Steps is a long walking path located on the island of Oahu, Hawaii (USA).

Initially, the Haiku stairs were opened in 1943 with the purpose of bringing cables and antennas connecting the two cliff sides of Haiku valley.

The purpose of building the first Haiku ladder was to support the construction of cables and antennas connecting the two cliffs of Haiku valley.

When the Navy base was decommissioned in the 1950s, the US Coast Guard used it as an Omega navigation system.

In 2003, the stairs were repaired at a cost of $875,000 from the city’s budget.
