Must See: Sunrise at the House of the Sun is Breathtaking for More Than One Reason!

Posted on November 13th, 2015 by Cici

Haleakala is the larger of two volcanoes that make up the Hawaiian island of Maui. Its name means “House of the Sun,” and aptly so. The stunning sunrises viewed from the summit of the mountain – at 10,023 feet above sea level — can literally take your breath away. There, the air is thin and cold, and the moments before the sun peaks over the horizon are some of the most serene that you will ever experience. The road to the summit is steep and winding, and takes about 2 hours to traverse, so plan on starting your day at 4 a.m. to reach the summit by the 6 a.m. sunrise – it is something you will not regret doing.
