It is quite the experience to actually be above the clouds. This limited our views, but was worth it. We hiked down into the crater, which really looks like you are on the moon. Very desolate! The weather changes quickly in the crater, so dress...More

Some clouds that morning but still good sunrise. We were lucky enough to see a couple get married at sunrise. Wear a coat. You'll need it!

We’ve been to Maui many times and decided to check it out this trip. When you get to the top it’s like being on the surface of Mars. We did it in the daytime, buy it would be awesome at night.

We were picked up at our resort at 2.30am, and after picking up more passengers, headed up the mountain. Our driver, Bessie, was full of knowledge and history of Maui. Upon arrival at the top, we got out to freezing cold and gale force winds....More

A great contrast to the other island environments. Looks like a moonscape atop of a lush mountain. It's a bit of a drive, but less time than the road to Hana for contrast. Well worth the trip.

We have seen the sunrise in the past and opted out of the mayhem this time. An interesting national park with an amazing history. Definately worth a visit. Bring warm clothes!

Like the road to Hana, this is a must do if it's your 1st time to Maui. The road is a piece of cake and a fun drive. Lots of places to snap a few photos along the way up or down. When you get...More

Do a google search for pictures of Haleakala sunrises and sunsets and I am pretty sure the sunrise wins by a long shot. Be aware that in addition to reserving a spot (at least 2 weeks in advance) there is also a good... More

It is good road all the way. I have driven it many times over the last 20 years in both daylight and nighttime. It is a long road but just take your time. Full two lanes all the way up.
