The Illegal 4,000-Step ‘ Stairway To Heaven ’ In Hawaii Is Pure Insanity

If I was Frodo when Golum led me to the bottom of the secret stairs into Mordor, I would have told him to (bleep) .

If you ask me then the architecture of said stairs should be embarrassed, what ever happened to safety first?

As it goes, he’s not the only death-stair building maniac to grace us with his presence.

It’s called the Haʻikū Stairs, aka the Stairway to Heaven, and it’s has one of the most breathtaking views in the entire world.

However, that view comes with a price… because it’s actually illegal to climb.

The stairway was originally installed during World War II so military could access a radio station antennae that sat roughly 2,000 feet up in the mountains.

The majority of the trek is almost vertical

Located on the Hawaiian Island of Oahu, this staircase, which reaches a peak of nearly 3,000 feet, is forbidden by the Hawaiian government… a guard was even present during the day meaning would-be climbers need to pick their moment carefully.

Looking down is not advised

The stairs can become extremely slippery when wet

In total, there are 4,000 steps

Many people start the hike early in the morning when it’s still dark so they can catch the sunrise.

Sadly, a recent storm damaged most of the stairs making it now almost completely inaccessible in some spots…. the fate of the stairs and the journey they offer is now up in the air unless community organizations come together to restore this historic and breathtaking staircase.

I for one reckon they’re worth saving. It’s not every day you get a view point as stunning as this.
