Housing world's two most active volcanoes, Hilo, Big Island attracts geologists and travelers from around the world alike. The fascinating and massive volcanic peaks still see huge eruptions of melted lava that drips down to the cold ocean water and gets solidified at the base. The two volcanoes, Kilauea, meaning 'spewing' and Mauna Loa are more than 70 million years old and is the main attraction of the national park. Due to security reasons, it may happen that guests may not be allowed to visit the National Park during eruptions.
Visitors come to hike in this massive peak which is 8,230m higher than the Mount Everest. Apart from this, you can also visit the Crater Rim with exceptional scenic vistas and cover the other parts of the National Park including Jaggar Museum, Sulphur banks, Thurston Lava Tube, Pu'u Pua'i Overlook and more in the 11-mile Crater trail.
