You'll begin by ascending 10,023 feet for one of the most beautiful dawns on earth as the sun peeks above the “house of the rising sun,” which is the English translation for Haleakala.
Nothing can prepare you for the feelings you will experience on the summit of Haleakala volcano. The panoramic sunrise view of Haleakala Crater—a once-in-a-lifetime experience—is overwhelming. Visually stunning, the summit area is enormous in its scale and dimensions.
After sunrise, you'll enjoy discovering native birds in the shrubland, the cinder desert landscape, and endemic plants and animals. The mountain is one of the only easily-accessible areas of Hawai‘i where rare Hawaiian species survive and thrive.
