    Indescribably beautiful. Sunrise above the clouds - I have never seen anything more beautiful. You should always take thick clothes, it is very cold. An absolute must on your Maui bucket list!

    Sunrise is amazing at the top

    Don't miss the breathtaking sunset either! Get your snacks at the Kula General Store just before you turn onto the mountain road.

    It's about a 2.5 hour trip from Wailea. Make sure you have a good playlist to keep you awake and alert driving up the crater!

    Amazing views that you can't get anywhere else, that's all there is to it. Though the drive up is a bit nerve wracking.

    Fantastic view, but you have to be there at least 1-2 hours before sunrise to get parking spot on the summit. Also really really cold. Drive to observatory (closed to public) to get more great photos.

    Take some aspirin when you're done coming down. The elevation change (+/-10,000") can give you a bad headache.

    Don't miss the breath-taking sunrise form Haleakala National Park. Definitely worth getting up early for! Flights to Hawaii leave daily and are available from £639 departing from London Gatwick.

    Don't just see the sunrise and leave. Explore the crater. Enjoy the awesomeness of nature.

    The volcano summit is the best spot to watch the sun rise. Check the cloud report, a few clouds make for a picturesque sun rise but too many and visibility is severely impacted. Also, get there early

    What's better: a sunset over the Hawaii ocean or over the Hawaii clouds? Here, decide for yourself. Start driving up an hour before sunset, land above the clouds, and watch the sun round the earth.

    Drive up there early to catch the sunrise. Get there at least an hour before the estimated sunrise time as the park lot fills fast

    Get on The top before sunset, then leave the crowd behind and go to some place on The trail to enjoy a private view with a beer!

    Haleakalā is why pants that zip into shorts exist.

    Watching the sunrise is beautiful and worth the drive up the winding road. Get there early to ensure you get a parking spot. Make sure you wear a jacket and maybe a hat, it's freezing up there!

    Sunset & star gazing here Is gorgeous!! Even cloudy days. Go all the way to the top to the summit. The drive isn't for the feint of heart but worth it! The altitude can mess with you, drink lots water

    Once you get there head to the backside of the visitors center and get protection from the harsh freezing wind! You can climb up on the wall of the visitors center for a better view too

    Worth the drive up! Even if there are clouds you drive through some when you go above the cloud line. Definitely bring a hoodie and/or blankets!

    Not an early bird? No problem. Haleakalā is known for sunrises but if you haven’t seen a sunset from this vantage point, you are missing out!

    Bring a light hoodie or jacket. It can get a little chilly, although the roads are a little crazy, definitely go up all the way to the top. It's worth it.

    It is necessary to put on very warmly: very strong wind and it is cold! Instead of sunrise you can arrive for sunset - in the spring it around 6.30 pm
