This is a Must Do, if you get to this area of Maui. Go early, and watch the sunrise pop up above the mountains. It is extremely cold, wear coats, boots, hats and mittens. The wind coming off the crater makes it extremely cold. Take a good camera and capture something beautiful.

We loved our trip up to the crater. The most beautiful sights I have ever seen. It was so amazing to be above the clouds ,without being in a plane. I would love to go back.

Maui is known for their sunsets but to experience them from 10,000 feet is breath taking. Be sure to bring your camera, wear layers and bring something comfortable to sit on. The 360 degree views above the clouds at dusk is a phenomenal site. You won't be disappointed.

You're going to be awake anyway, might as well see a one of a kind sunrise. Dress warm, prepare to jockey for position and hope that you have a clear day. We did and it was beautiful. Worth it!

When planning my trip I wanted to see the sunrise. For different reasons we ended up not doing that but going mid morning instead. This place was really special and interesting. Definitely worth a visit!

We booked the sunrise crater tour. We were late being picked up by a less than happy guide he actually didn't speak a word to anyone for at least an hour. We were served a hot chocolate (well those of us at the front of the bus before they ran out). Weather was freezing so our guide advised us to... More

Wow! I had no idea that the sunset could look so amazing when you are standing on top of the world! Or at least it felt like we were standing on top of the world. We did the sunset trip & it was excellent. The view was breathtaking. Our tour guide was a born & raised local & he knew... More

My fingers may have actually got a bit of frostbite on this trip as we stood waiting for the sun to rise. There was ice on the ground. We had been warned to dress warm but I never thought I would need mittens on Maui. The view is beautiful. We watched sunrise from second lookout sight and went up to... More

Catching the sunrise at the Haleakala Summit is a must for anyone traveling to Maui. Getting up early and driving whatever distance it might be from your accommodations is definitely worth the effort. We got there 2 hours before the actual sunrise to get a good spot. Keep in mind that the sky starts to change as much as an... More
