Hana in Maui County, Hawaii — Hawaiian Island Archipelago (Pacific Ocean)
Haleakala National Park
Kipahulu: Costal District
In Hawaii coastal areas like Kipahulu are called kahakai. Islanders migrating from Polynesia settled along coastlines and evolved a unique, complex, and rich culture. The summit area of Haleakala is referred to as kua mauna, the uninhabited regions above the clouds. Haleakala National Park preserves and helps perpetuate the cultural richness of both kua mauna, kahakai, and the diverse features in between. It is all here for you to explore.
Trails enter the cinder desert and wind through shrub land unlike anyplace else on Earth.
