Let's go to Jaggar Museum, the only place in the Volcano Park where we can see active volcanoes. Unfortunately, we don't have time to see the fire in the evening. Then Kilauea overlook, Kilauea overlook, Steam vents, Kilauea Iki overlook, Kilauea Iki overlook, Kilauea Crater Observatory, Kilauea, Kilauea, Kilauea Iki overlook, Kilauea, Kilauea overlook, Kilauea overlook, Kilauea, Kilauea overlook, Kilauea, Kilauea Here, we meet the famous grey goose Nene in Hawaii. After lunch, we turn back to Thurston Lava Tube, a cave formed by natural lava flow. It's a short, several-step rhythm, but the ferns at both ends of the cave are very beautiful. About 12 o'clock from the cave, we started the path of the crater, Chain of Craters Road, all the way north to the Elephant Trunk Hill. The scenery of this section is very magnificent. On both sides of the road are black oil lava like twists. After thousands of years of eruption and condensation, it is still growing and growing. Large pieces of green oil plants emerge from the cracks of the lava, stretching endlessly, and the end of the road. It's an endless ocean. In such a vast and vast nature, people will involuntarily worship the mighty power of nature and the desperate vitality. Here, photographs can take less than a tenth of the beauty of the scenery that the eyes can see, because it is too vast and too vast. All the way, when lookout stopped, the wind was so strong that it almost blew people away. Here the hat was the ear of the deaf and the eyes of the blind. All the way north to the famous "Elephant Trunk Mountain", where waves of the Pacific Ocean invade the lava cliff one after another, endless, and the wind on the cliff shore makes people headache. Starting at 2:30 p.m. from the northernmost end of Chain of Craters Road to the south end of Highway 137 to take part in the active volcano hiking, this is one of the most exciting programs of the Hawaii trip.
On the way there, I did my homework in a hurry, and was still wondering if I would take a helicopter to see a magma plunge into the sea after driving. Only when I arrived at the visitor center did I know that all magma watching activities on the island had been cancelled and that Jagger museum had been shut down, because last year's earthquake, magma diversion, and no magma could be seen in the next three years. In this case, we can only choose our wife to drive all the way, until the final net red card "elephant nose". It's almost an hour's walk from the entrance to the destination. There are many scenic spots along the way, which can be parked and watched or down for a walk. It's still shocking to see a piece of cooling magma after the volcanic eruption. Sometimes the remnants of red magma can be seen.
The places worth visiting, like the feeling on Mars, are totally different from other places. There are many scenic spots on the Internet. I just suggest that, first, we must rent a car for $25 per ticket. There is a restaurant near the tourist service center. You can eat while watching the volcano outside the window. Second, drive along the chain of craters road. All the way, there are scenic spots. To the southernmost end is the sea, the really blue sea! All along the way are the geomorphological characteristics formed after the volcanic eruption! __________ Third, wear more clothes and take good rain gear, there are not many service points along the way!
Looking at a lot of pictures, I always thought that the lava from Kilauea Caldera would grow bigger and bigger after dark, and I realized that it was an illusion of visual effect. We can only see the edge of the crater from time to time, and it has been steaming constantly. During the day, it is a feeling of water vapor. After dark, the temperature drops, the temperature difference between the inside and outside of the crater increases, and the water vapor becomes more. Against the background of the surrounding black, the water vapor at the bottom of the crater flashes bright red light. The photograph shows the feeling of a flame. The Jaggar Museum will have staff speaking in English in the open air before dark. As the sun sinks to the West and the temperature on the mountain drops to several degrees in a straight line, the preparation of the cold-proof clothes is indispensable.
The volcanic park on Big Island, Hawaii, is a place where every visitor has to punch in. The volcanoes here are so large that there are still two active volcanoes in the past few decades. They are rare and very famous in the world. Unfortunately, the flowing red magma could not be seen until November 2018. It's bound to reappear in the near future. It's a pity that we didn't see the volcano that has been spraying for decades. Because of the May 2018 earthquake and volcanic eruption, volcano parks are now closed to some scenic spots and roads, most of which are still open. Tickets 25 knives two cars, can be used for 7 days, there are many walking routes in the park, because the limited time is usually along the Chain of Craters Road (volcanic road) to the seaside, is still infinitely good scenery. Before you go, I suggest you check the official website of Volcano Park to know some information about scenic spots and roads.
The crater is about 800 meters in diameter and nearly 300 meters in depth. It has not stopped erupting since it cracked in March 2008. The crater ring road surrounds the huge crater on the top of Kilauea volcano. It passes through different landscapes such as desert and tropical rain forest. Besides the most famous one mentioned above, it's worth it! Thurston volcano cave, walking through, has a history of 500 years. The feeling of the jungle is quiet and beautiful, but there are still some lingering palpitations in recalling the feeling of sparse population. There are many hiking trails in the volcano park, which are said to be endless for seven days. We only walked for two hours. It rained a little hard, so we went back to the parking lot. Here, hot magma once flowed through underground passages, and the walls of underground passages cooled and solidified, forming huge voids from which passages formed. There is a lush tropical rain forest at the end of the passage. Destruction Trail, hiking through paved paths, through lava fountains and ash-covered areas formed by Kilauea Iki eruptions!
Hawaii Volcano National Park - There are two volcanoes. Kilauea is one of the most active volcanoes in the world. It has never stopped erupting since 1983. It is also the only volcano in the world that can be driven into. Another active volcano, Maunaloa, is also in the park. There are 241 kilometers of trails to walk through craters, scorching deserts and tropical rainforests. The park became a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve in 1980 and was listed on the World Natural Heritage List in 1987.
Does a car cost 12 dollars or 10 dollars? It looks like it can travel for 7 days. We went there twice, and each time we went there was not enough. The scenery was really beautiful. After entering the door, go to the tourist center to get a Chinese map, and study where you want to go first, so as not to turn back. There are often closed roads inside. Drive carefully. It's really a good experience to drive to the bottom of the map, to the end of the volcano park and then to take a section of volcano road that can't be accessed by cars. Nature is great and magnificent. Sometimes people are really small. The whole volcano park has no supplies along the way. Fill it with oil and bring dry food. If the driving level and courage are not very big, remember to go out of the volcano park before dark, because the road back to the city has no lights, it is very dark. Be sure to bring a thick coat and pants. Rainwear should also be carried.
Hawaii Volcano National Park. Walk a four-mile hiking trail through tropical rainforests and mountains where volcanic magma flows. After a rain, I met the most beautiful rainbow I've ever seen. In the evening, I went to the crater to watch the active flame activity and looked up at the stars all over the sky. The starry sky against the flames is more beautiful than the one I saw at the Mauna Kea Observatory.
Hawaii's Big Island, a visit to the Volcano National Park is absolutely the most exciting journey. Two active volcanoes, Kilauea and Mauna Loa, are known as one of the safest volcanoes in the world. The magma that constantly erupts seems to tell everyone about the great power of nature. The two volcanoes on the Big Island form the Volcano National Park. Kilauea is one of the volcanoes, which has been active all the time. It is also an active volcano that few ordinary tourists in the world visit at close range. Here you will face the active volcanoes and feel the tremendous power of the land. Before entering the park, you can get maps and guides at the tourist center.
