Haleakala Crater

If you’re wondering whether you should spend the better part of a day on top of Haleakala, ask yourself this: when will I have another chance to walk above the clouds on the summit of a 10,000 foot high dormant volcano? My recommendation is to make the trip. And as long as you’re going, make it early so you can watch the sunrise. It’s pretty cool. The bonus is that after the sunrise show is over you’ll have plenty of time to hike or horseback into the crater. Or yo can head back down the mountain and spend the rest of the day exploring Kula, Makawao, and the rest of Upcountry Maui. One word of caution – the Haleakala summit can get pretty cold. So stick to warm jackets, long sleeves, long pants, and hiking shoes/sneakers. Whatever you do, don’t wear your bathing suit, a t-shirt and slippers.

Kula Views

Upcountry Maui is a whole new experience compared to the coastal towns. It has cooler weather, lots of cows and horses, and some of the most amazing views you’ll ever see in your life. From Kula’s high hilltops, you’re able to see Maui’s north shore and southside in one glance. The Ali‘i Kula Lavender Farm is a great place to stop and take it all in while walking around the grounds. There’s a lot to see and do Upcountry, so plan on dedicating at least a full day to it.

The easiest route is the Haleakala Highway, which leads past Pukalani and Makawao. For a scenic drive take either Lower or Upper Kula Roads.
