Mount Haleakala is a beautiful volcano with lots of interesting and stunning views to see.
The experience of climbing the summit is jaw-dropping to say the least, making the journey unforgettable.
You can tell your friends you climbed a volcano!
When you reach the top, this stunning view of the clouds resting over the mountaintop and you get this amazing feeling of standing on one of the highest peaks in the world.
This place is also full of history, vibrating with stories of ancient and modern Hawaiian culture, protecting the bond between the land and the people.
Viewing the sunrise at the peak is also an experience that you should take advantage of.
When the sunlight hits the mouth of Hawaii’s largest volcano, the shadows it creates at the crater are a marvel to look at.
This is not an easy hike as it takes place entirely above 6,990′ in a desert environment.
The end of the hike involves a steep climb, and the temperatures can swing 30 degrees at a moment’s notice while rain and even ice can occur at practically any time.
There is no water and no shade present.
Haleakala owes its existence to its position atop a “hot spot”. This hot spot is responsible for producing all of the Hawaiian islands.
In spite of this, the chance to stand atop this awesome landscape is unlike no other!
