Haleakala is a massive shield volcano that forms more than 75% of the Hawaiian Island of Maui. Surrounding and including the “crater” is Haleakala National Park, which is mostly wilderness. Haleakala’s summit is 3055 m above sea level. The best time to visit the summit is early in the morning to catch the sunrise. There is an excellent road to the top and the scenery is breathtaking.
