Maui – From 0 to 3000

Saturday, November 21st, 2009

Maui is a small island with only about 130’000 inhabitants. It’s very popular among surfers. But Maui is more than just a surfer’s paradise. It’s also famous for the Haleakala (House of the Sun). Haleakala is a crater with the incredible numbers of 11 km (diameter), 1 km (depth) and 3 km (height of the summit). That’s the world’s largest crater. It’s also home to an observatory.

After a long drive from the coast up to the summit on about 3000 meter above sea level, you get an incredible view. You feel like looking at something an a different planet.
