We were unable to go for the sunrise because you need reservations which we didn't have, but went anyway just after and it was awesome, so glad we did. It is cold on top, bring a jacket or some kind...
We tried to get a reservation for sunrise - but were unable to. We had visited a number of years ago and did the bike ride down after watching a sunrise covered by clouds. The sunset was magnificent! ...
Be prepared for cold winds- bring jacket. Rain or shine, the top might be clear once you get there. BLow off the sunset bike tours, they dont go to the top in the park, rent a good road bike in Paia ...
Halekara National Park to see the volcano ~ drive two hours to arrive, the whole process is U-shaped mountain road, when the clouds pass through the rain, I think that I can't see anything up, and the result is that the volcano summit is another scene~ It was shocking and shocking. We sat on the top of the mountain for a long time and felt it!
Haven't been to Haleakala National Park, you can't be a Maui, you can't say that you have touched the soul of Maui.
Hareakala National Park spans the southern and eastern coastline of Maui, with the highest peak of Maui, the Haleakala volcano, at an altitude of 3,055 meters. It can be seen from any location on the island. . The park has three separate visitor centres with a variety of natural environments. You can travel at the highest peak of Haleakala, hike in the clouds, and ride horses in a desert like a paradise. As the park stretches towards the coast, it gradually descends to sea level and even visits the verdant tropical areas that are filled with waterfalls and streams.
A lot of tourists and locals get up early to drive to the Haleakala Visitor Centre, which is the best place to watch the sunrise. On a clear morning, watching the sunrise on the top of Haleakala is an unforgettable experience. Even those who have seen this scene many times have said that they have never seen the same sunrise twice. Equally spectacular is the sunset and starry night of Haleakala.
