- Venue Description:
More than two million people visit the active Kilauea Volcano each year, enthralled by the sight of the forbidding black mountain and the fiery streams of molten lava that flow from it. The other active volcano, Mauna Loa, is the largest one on earth; the summit towers at more than 13,000 feet (3962.4 meters) above sea level. There are many hiking trails in the park, which spans 217,000 acres (87816.8 hectares). The Kilauea Visitor Center and Jaggar Museum offer the chance to learn more about the park's history and geology.
