We drove up today to see the crater. It's a long windy road with many pulls off for the perfect photo op. Beautiful! Within no time you realize you are above the clouds on the lower parts of the island. It almost feels like you can see the mainland from here (j/k). Lots of bicyclist coasting down the mountain and... More

Visiting the park s a must see. If you want to see the sunrise check on a trusted weather site before you go. I would recommend driving yourself. Leleiwi lookout should be a stop. It is a close hike to the lookout. You get a better view of the site. Taking the tour bus is something you should think about.... More

Started at 4 in the morning to see the sun rise which was one of the most talked about place in Maui. Trust me it was worth it. So beautiful,calm and the chanting made it more surreal. I took the blanket with me,it's not possible to stand outside as it was damn cold. Worth it,enjoy the moment silently.

Thanks to other trip advisor reviews we opted to camp at this 7,000 elevation to acclimate and avoid altitude sickness with our teens for the full day hike the next day. We arrived in Kahului airport in the morning, went to Target and Costco to get provisions, then drove up in time to catch the truly spectacular views of rolling... More

I woke up at 2 a clock am to go to Haleakala and was expecting to see a beautiful sunrise over a crater only to learn it's not a crater. We arrived around 4 and stood outside in 20 degree temperature staring at a dark cloudy sky. The sunrise was very nice but, the whole experience was not close to... More

Haleakala N.P. has two campgrounds for camping - Hosmer's Grove and Kipahulu. Both are free once you pay the $10 admission to the park. Hosmer's is located at about 7000' above sea level on the northern side of the crater, making it easy to see both the sunset and sunrise atop the mountain. The campsite is an open concept, which...

We stayed in Kapalaoa Cabin. It was nice to not have to pack in a tent or cookware, but I almost would rather stay in my own tent. The cabin was full of flies - there were more flies inside the cabin than around the horses that were outside when groups would stop by to use the outhouse. This was... More

We stayed in the Holua Cabin for one night and it was great. Clean. GREAT location. The wood-burning stove was great - there was plenty of wood and it kept the place pretty warm. The propane burners made it easy for us to do a quick dinner. Very quiet! The nenes were adorable. When we got up in the middle... More
