Maui, Hawaii - Haleakala National Park (Hawaii Travel Vlog 6)
Part 6 of the Hawaii series of videos. This video covers day 7 of the adventure.
Watch Part 5:
On day 7 of our Hawaiian adventure we drove down to the Kipahulu District of the Haleakala National Park. They have quite a few great hikes to go on, especially the Pipiwai Trail, which brings you to the incredible Waimoku Falls. The hike is especially beautiful because it brings you through a Bamboo Forest and then through a rain forest!
After that long (but not too difficult) hike we did some of the nice easier hikes around the visitor center that bring you around the coastline and give you a chance to see a couple of smaller waterfalls.
After the hiking for a while we went back towards the Hana area and ate at Huli Huli Chicken, which had some of the best chicken I have ever had (not exaggerating)!
Finally we finished the day chilling at a couple of the beaches in the area (Hamoa Beach and Waianapanapa Black Sand Beach), which felt great after hiking!

This is a comedy of me (silenternie) and my wife NaPua at Haleakala State Park in Maui. This was our 5th take. Darn its hard to get a good take when there is so many car's going by.
SUNRISE OVER HALEAKALA VOLCANIC CRATER, MAUI, HAWAII,
No visit to Maui is complete without watching the sunrise over Haleakala Crater. At 13,000 feet elevation you're looking down on the clouds....The air is thin, it's cold and difficult to breathe. Some of the World's most powerful telescopes are located on top of this dormant volcano. Inside the crater is similar to the moon's surface...It's mystical! firstname.lastname@example.org

Haleakala National Park, Touching the Clouds in Maui, Hawaii
In this video, we visit the Haleakala National Park in Maui, Hawaii. We get to touch the clouds while we are up there!
Our first stop was to do a nice short hike to the LeiLeiwi Overlook to view the side of the mountain. The park includes the Haleakala volcano, a dormant volcano which last erupted in 1600 or so. There is a winding roadway that you can drive up to the top of Haleakala, a change in elevation from sea level to 10,023 feet at the peak. There are different flora and fauna in Hawaii and as you drive up the road to the summit of Haleakala, you will notice that there is a big change from the type of plant life that you will see at sea level, at the middle of the mountain and at the top of the summit. You can see that we are already touching the clouds in this footage and in fact are looking down some of the clouds below us, which is an amazing feeling.
Haleakala means House of the Sun in Hawaiian. Legend has it that she was the grandmother of the Goid demi god Maui and she helped him to capture the sun to force the sun to slow down its path to lengthen the daylight hours.
We picked an overcast day to visit Haleakala. This saved the sunnier days to spend at the beach, because this drive did take a few hours. However, because of that, we did not get a good view of the island from the summit. Our friends who have seen it on a clear day say it is breathtaking. People also drive up to the top to witness the sunrise or sunset and you will supposedly see the sun rising or setting above the clouds. Make sure you get a reservation if you want to go visit on sunrise or sunset, which can be very desirable times. Even though we missed out on that, we were able to experience touching the clouds, the change in flora, and learning more about the volcano.
At the top of the summit, there is a visitor’s center and because you are so high there is a lot of seemingly barren land with rocks in it. The climate is cold up there, so make sure you bring a jacket. You will notice that there are many areas marked with signs protecting endangered species.
This is a dormant volcano that is rated hazard zone 3-4 as the volcano has erupted about three times in the last 900 years. In comparison, nearby Kilauea and Mauna Loa volcanoes are rated a hazard zone 1 (most dangerous) and they have erupted 12 times in the last 90 years.
Up on top of Haleakala, it is high and there is not a lot of light pollution, making this spot a great spot for setting up telescopes to view the stars.

6 MUST SEES IN MAUI| Road to Hana, Snorkeling with Sea Turtles, Haleakala at Sunrise [AND MORE!]

► Shaka Guide for Road to Hana:
Best Things to do in Maui
► The Road to Hana! The Road to Hana was our favorite single day in Maui, it was a day absolutely PACKED with adventure! Our two biggest tips for the Road to Hana are to get and early start, and to use the Shaka Guide. When you start early, you'll beat a lot of the traffic and have more of the sites to yourself. Using the Shaka Guide will make sure you don't miss any amazing sites and waterfalls!
► Snorkel with Sea Turtles! There are snorkeling opportunities all around Maui, and the best part is that there are Sea Turtles at most of the spots! Honolua Bay & Black Rock are two places you can drive to and snorkel for free, where we saw 4-5 sea turtles at EACH PLACE! Molokini Crater is the most beautiful place to snorkel on Maui, however you can only get here by boat on an excursion.
► Haleakala at Sunrise! Haleakala at sunrise is one of the most stunning views you can imagine. You are above the clouds and get to see the sun rise over that horizon of clouds! It is an inverted sunrise people... You need a permit for this, which costs $1, but you have to get it at 7am 2 days before you are planning on going. Don't be late because they sell out fast!
► Pride of Maui Excursions. We took the Pride of Maui to Molokini Crater for snorkeling and for their dinner cruise! We had a blast on each trip, and highly recommend these tours. The guides were awesome, the food was great, and we got to experience a side of Maui that we wouldn't have been able to experience otherwise!
► Nakalele Blowhole. This is what it sounds like. There is a hole in the rocky coast North of Lahaina where water periodically shoots out of like a giant blowhole! It is super cool, and pretty incredible how high the water sprays!
► Farmer's Markets! You have to love fresh fruits and vegetables, and Maui has some of the best tropical fruits in the world. Head to a farmer's market (there are many on the island, we went to the one in Lahaina) and sample the local fruits and veggies, and bring some home to enjoy on your trip!
Where to Stay in Kauai
We recommend getting an Airbnb or hotel in the Lahaina area of Maui. We loved that area and felt like we were right in the middle of everything we wanted to see and do in Maui!
If you have any questions, we would love to hear from you in the Comments or on our About Us page. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Hi, we are Julie & Zach, a couple who sold everything in 2018 and took off an adventure around the world! So far, this journey has taken us in a van ALL ACROSS the United States and Canada, from snorkeling with manatees in Florida to camping in the Grand Canyon to climbing glaciers in Canada, and everything in between! We were both working and going to school while living in Chicago in 2017 and 2018, and to be honest it really wore on us. We were exhausted, unfulfilled, and ready for an adventure. So, we made it happen! We saved up AS MUCH as we could over those 2 years - all homemade meals, no shopping, walk or bike everywhere, etc - and sold almost all of our belongings! With that money, we bought a renovated a van that we have been living in ever since! We started our YouTube channel a few weeks ago and have been loving creating videos! When we started, we were SO SO SO SO bad at it, and to be honest we still kinda suck, but we want to get better! What videos do you want to see? Let us know and we will make it happen!
We believe that travel is truly a life-changing experience, it certainly changed ours! When you get out of your everyday world and experience new cultures, foods, places, people, sights, sounds, and take an adventure, you grow as a person and you become a better version of yourself! You are WAY stronger than you know, and stronger than you give yourself credit for. You have the ability to do anything, so make it happen! BE FOREVER FREE!

Haleakala Observatories and Spectacular Views from the top of Volcano ~ Maui Hawaii
Haleakala Observatories and Spectacular Views from the top of Volcano ~ Maui Hawaii

Because of the remarkable clarity, dryness, and stillness of the air, and its location above one-third of Earth’s atmosphere, as well as the limited light pollution, the summit of Haleakala is one of the most sought-after locations in the world for ground-based telescopes. As a result of the geographic importance of this observational platform, experts come from all over the world to take part in research at Haleakala Observatory, an astrophysical complex operated by the University of Hawaii, United States Air Force, LCOGT, and others.
Some of the telescopes operated by the Air Force are involved in researching man-made (spacecraft, monitoring satellites, rockets, and laser technology, etc.) rather than celestial objects. The program is in collaboration with defense contractors located in the Maui Research and Technology Park in Kihei.
Haleakala is a dormant volcano.
East Maui, or Haleakala--
A Potentially Hazardous Volcano
When asked about Hawaiian volcanoes, most people imagine the Island of Hawai`i and its eruptions at Kilauea or Mauna Loa volcanoes. But East Maui volcano has witnessed at least ten eruptions in the past 1,000 years, and numerous eruptions have occurred there in the past 10,000 years. Thus, East Maui's long eruptive history and recent activity indicate that the volcano will erupt in the future.
Haleakala National Park is the most visited part of East Maui. The Hawaiian name Hale-a-ka-la (lit., house of the sun), is now nearly synonymous with the entire shield of East Maui volcano. Early Hawaiians, however, applied the name only to the summit area, the site where the demigod Maui snared the sun and forced it to slow its journey across the sky.
The oldest lava flow exposed on East Maui is about 1.1 million years in age. It is part of a sequence of flows emplaced near the end of shield building on East Maui. The time estimated to build a volcano from ocean floor to the end of its shield-building stage is thought by some scientists to be about 0.6 million years. East Maui volcano probably began its growth about 2.0 million years ago.
Volcanism of the past 30,000 years on East Maui has been focused along the southwest and east rift zones. These two volcanic axes together form one gently curving arc that passes from La Perouse Bay (southwest flank of East Maui) through Haleakala Crater to Hana on the east flank. The alignment continues east beneath the ocean as Haleakala Ridge, one of the longest rift zones along the Hawaiian Islands volcanic chain. The on-land segment of this lengthy volcanic line of vents is the zone of greatest hazard for future lava flows and cindery ash.
