Best Of Hawaii

Mauna Kea is the world’s premier location for astronomical research. The clarity, stability, and darkness of our skies make this the home to the world’s largest and most powerful, productive telescopes. It is a true beauty to visit Mauna Kea. The drive up the mountain and climbing the altitude is a very cool experience in itself. Once you reach the summit, you stand with the mountain tops above the clouds. You will be in awe to see the sunrise amongst the heavenly Hawaiian sky. To witness this beauty is a priceless experience!
