AOL Travel Editor’s Review

This is one of the best things to do in Maui for a truly magical experience. Filled with mystery, legend and natural beauty a visit to Haleakala is well worth at least a short half-day trip to the summit. To the Hawaiians it’s believed to be the “House of the Sun” and any visit at sunrise will certainly prove why. To adventurers it can be an overnight hike along the crater floor watching for endangered birds and spotting rare plants while trekking along sweeping escarpments of cinder cones and lava tubes. It can also mean cozying up in a mountaintop cabin where temperatures regularly dip below freezing. The views from the top on the clearest of days can take in the Big Island, Oahu and everything in between.
