Where is Hawaii Volcanoes National Park?
The Hawaii Volcanoes National Park on Hawaii Island, offers the visitor a look at two of the world’s most active volcanoes: Mauna Loa and the Kilauea. The Kilauea is 1,220 m high and still grows. His south-eastern slope borders on the older and significantly larger Mauna Loa, the “long mountain”. Of 4.168 m-high Mauna Loa is the highest elevation of the entire state.
The Park extends from sea level to the summit of Mauna Loa. The Mauna Loa wilderness joins the end of the road. Hikers explore a volcanic Wonderland: Rough trails lead through the volcanic landscape, with solidified Lava in the wild, twisted shapes, cinder cones, and open columns. It can even freeze here at night. Kilauea, on the other hand, offers easy access to a wider variety of landscapes and cultural attractions.
On the slopes of the Kilauea, whose Name means “spreading a lot of spews”, green rain forest borders on young lava flows. This natural laboratory, shows all the stages of Forest regeneration from an early stage, the Regrowth of Lichens and ferns, and the dense forest. The rain forest on the windward side of the summit gives way to the barren, windy Kai-desert on the hot, dry southwestern slope. On the coast, the violence of the Pacific ocean rugged molded rock. Periodic outbreaks produce fresh lava flows, which then steam into the sea. The natural geological dynamics characterise this Park.
