It’s obviously beautiful and lush. Don’t plan on getting a workout on this hike. I think it’s 3/4 of a mile of sight seeing.

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.
