Although I am not an astronomy enthusiast, but with the love of stars, I have the courage to climb the mountain. If you find it exciting to stand on the top of the observatory, driving up the mountain is more exciting. After entering the Yunyu area, Shizi Road, there are no ancients and no visitors after bumping into each other. After driving for a long time, I found a car in front of me. The two cars went together all the way through the rainy and cloudy area, and the road was better. Then, driving a car, the sun suddenly came through a turn, and the surrounding area began to become vast and spectacular. Panshan Road, adhere to the end to the top of the mountain, there is no word to describe the scene before us. It's really a surprise. By the way, remember to wear a thick coat and pants. The station is open at 6 p.m. and needs to drive down to the rest station on the way. With hot water supply, the telescopes moved out after dark. I remember queuing up earlier. The stars are really beautiful, beautiful and beautiful. If it's not too late to think about it, I don't want to go back. The stars are everywhere. Note: Take enough supplies, and thick pants, full tank, tall car is more appropriate, drive carefully, never fast.
No matter how far the road is, the crater is still smoking, the endless volcanic rocks, the bottom of which is the sea, the magical nature.The starry sky and the Milky Way visible to the naked eye at the top of Mount Maunacaya can't remember how many years have passed without seeing more than two or three stars.
I didn't expect to see the snow mountain in Hawaii. Although it was very cold, I had the privilege of seeing the sunset above the clouds, on the top of the snow mountain, and the clouds burning in the sky with heavy ink. It was really freezing. It's better to prepare some hot water and snacks to replenish calories while waiting for sunset in the mountains. At about seven o'clock in the evening, a staff member of the tourist center explained to the stars.
Mauna Kea, turn 199 highway to 200 highway to Shangshan intersection, go up 20 kilometers to the tourist information center, then go up about 4 miles of sandstone road (the gate of the tourist information center clearly requires 4 driving), then less than 10 kilometers of highway to the top of the mountain, there are nearly 10 astronomical stations on the top of the mountain. The road condition is good, but the sand and gravel road about 4 miles is frightened and trembling. The visibility is very low in the cloud and fog area, even less than 20 meters. On one side, it is a cliff, driving speed is 20 km/h, speed limit is 25 miles. Maybe it means the weather is good. Here's a glimpse of the 2.0T taxi rented, two-wheel drive, because the first day of flight is delayed, the car has not been selected, but the car's power is OK, it's no problem to go up the mountain. This volcano is one of the most conspicuous spots on the island. It is 4,200 meters high. The extinct volcano stopped erupting 4,600 years ago. I think it may be the key factor for the formation of Hawaii. Up the mountain, really shocked! The sea of clouds and the setting sun on the hill are really spectacular! It is one of the most famous stars in the world. After 7 o'clock, the sky is full of stars, and the dim galaxies are hanging up! Unfortunately, after only half an hour's enjoyment, the police on duty ordered the tourists to leave in a commanding tone and could only admire them through telescopes at the tourist center in the mid-mountains. Think of the road is still far away, strange, dark night, speed, rules, all kinds of adverse, can only leave. What a wonderful new experience!
The first destination is the world's highest mountain - Maunakaya volcano, one of the world's largest dormant volcanoes (six kilometers under the sea, more than four kilometers above the sea, totally higher than the Himalayas). Climb to watch the sunset and stars, from zero altitude all the way to 2800 meters, the road to 4200 meters behind! The mountain was well prepared for warmth. Up the hill, it was found that it was warmer than downhill. All the rain and clouds stepped on their feet, leaving the mountain windy and rainy, and the mountain top clear. There are 4.5 miles of stony roads up the hill. Officials recommend low-speed four-wheel cars up the hill. They are mainly afraid of stalling and skidding, but they see several wild horses at the top of the hill.
I like Volcano National Park very much. One-day volcano tour is my favorite day during the whole trip to Hawaii. What a place to see! In the evening, when you approach the edge of the crater during the day, you can see a burst of smoke and some flames from the volcano. The smoke with sulphur stains the distant clouds yellow.
As a standard astronomy enthusiast, Mount Moneyji is a must-see place, where there is one of the purest stars in the world, and volunteers give astronomical explanations at night, which is a worthwhile trip. There are two small tips. If you want to see the sunset at Keck Observatory on the top of the hill, you must borrow the Four Drivers to go up the hill as far as possible before and after sunset. You can just go back to the tourist center to see the stars after sunset at the top of the hill.
Mauna Kea is a volcano on Hawaii's Great Island. It is 4207 meters above sea level and has snow in winter. If it is more than 10,000 meters from the bottom of the sea, it is the highest mountain in the world. There is the famous Mauna Kea Observatory on the top of the mountain, which is located in almost one third of the atmosphere, with low humidity and low latitude. It is recognized as the best observatory site in the world. The weather here is sunny all the year round, which is very suitable for stargazing.
This volcano is a dormant volcano and the highest peak on the island. Over 4000 meters above sea level, it's very strange to climb to the top of the mountain and see the white clouds under your feet. It's also one of the best places to watch the stars. You can see the magnificent galaxy at night. But it's very cold in the mountains, so we should keep warm, and don't exercise vigorously at the top of the mountains, and be careful of ups and downs.
