Camp, hike, stargaze or just come for the storied sunrise and sunset viewings from the summit of the Haleakalā volcano. Many visitors visit Haleakalā National Park just to view the sun as it rises over the crater walls. This land has been a sacred site for Native Hawaiians and many mele (songs/chants) and stories have been written about the land.
The park is named after the Haleakalā Volcano which has been dormant for over 400 years. It is an international biosphere reserve and incorporates Native Hawaiian protocols and knowledge while also implementing both tradition and modern natural resource preservation.
The popular Pipiwai Trail in the park leads to the 200-foot Makahiku Falls, popular Bamboo Forest, 400-foot Waimoku Falls and a large banyan tree are just some of the must-experience sites in the park.
