I read so much about sunrise viewing, t was on "my list". Because of kids and staying in Lahaina, it just didn't happen. On a whim after missing closing time on the Lavendar farm, we headed up the hill, hoping to catch sunset instead (no reservations needed!!) We kept turning up the hill, saw some endangered birds... (Nunu, Nene, I... More

Very worthwhile experience. It was cold...very cold and a little crowded but worth the trip. Bundle up and tough it out long before sunrise. We waited in the van too long and many had acquired the optimal spots at the railing. We still had a unique experience just not as serene as I had hoped for.

Sunrise from the top of a dormant volcano. Absolutely worth the 2:30am wake up call. You will need reservations and a coat, gloves and hat. 38 degrees at sunrise. The view is simply spectacular. Highly recommended.

This is an amazing place. It really has the feel of what I envision Mars to be like in places. The stars at night are incredible and the night sounds are truly unique.

It is a long and winding road to the top of Haleakala, but if you get a clear day, the view is worth it. It is fascinating to see the tops of smaller craters within the larger ones. The view goes on forever here and you are literally up above the clouds.Remember though, that being up at 10,000 feet is... More

This is just an incredible place, probably any time of day. We went in early afternoon and spent several hours walking, shot tons of pictures and just taking in the breathtaking beauty of this place.

We visited Haleakala Crater to see the sunrise which was a truly special life experience. I would recommend staying after the sun has risen and the crowds have left to enjoy the breathtaking views. If we were not so jet lagged were would have also done some hiking. Driving up in the dark to catch the sunrise can be a... More

The drive to the top was beautiful. You gradually climb above the clouds and can see all of Kihului below you. The displays at the visitor centers were very informative.
