We took a tour bus up there and had a wonderful time. The vista was amazing and the people were knowledgeable about everything. I would recommend taking the trip just to say you did it

Makes for a great hike across and down. If you make the trek, be sure to have someone pick you up on the Liilani Highway 31 near the Kaupo General Store.

We drove up the winding road to the summit, actually a very relaxing and extreme scenic drive. You have different view as you drove up to 6000 ft., then 7000 and finally over 10,000 ft at the summit. The clouds and the volcano view was...More

Amazing feeling when you're up at Haleakala! Probably my favorite spot on the island. It's so peaceful & serene.

So beautiful, glad we went even though we couldn't make the sunset/sunrise time everyone recommends. If driving, make sure you have enough gas before making the trek up the mountain. We came across someone who did not smh. I believe it was $25 to enter.

It was a bit of a trek to get out there, and for those of us who are afraid of heights, going up a long windy road to 10,00 square feet is petrifying...but it's worth it. One thing I really did wrong - -I FORGOT...More

Absolutely. It's an awesome view...better yet, the crater won't be in shade and you'll be able to enjoy the vastness of Haleakala.

I would say 6 a.m. and it is a long drive up Haleakala. We had to leave about 3 a.m plus now you must have a reservation for the sunrise. I would suggest going for sunset, it is less crowded and you can see much more of the... More
