Nature's awesomely silent beauty at Haleakala is something that overwhelms and astounds. Home to a landscape that is uniquely Hawaiian, this ruggedly isolated area must be experienced firsthand.
The Rare Beauty of Haleakala
At Haleakala, visitors will find the “Ahinahina” – a silvery leafed plant that reflects the burning sunlight, while gathering the little moisture that the area offers. With a life span of thirty years, this silver sword blooms only once. The Nene, Hawaii’s nearly extinct State Bird, may also occasionally seen here.
Although it sounds unusual for Maui, traveling up the lava slops in winter can result in temperatures that are below freezing. Haleakala is a truly exclusive place to visit.
