The Summit Of Mauna Kea Is An Otherworldly Destination On Hawaii Island
The Hawaiian archipelago was created millions of years ago when underwater volcanoes emerged from the ocean’s surface. Home to approximately 20 volcanoes ranging in age from 400,000 years to 5.1 million years, the landscapes formed by these volcanoes will often make you feel as though you’ve entered another world. And on Hawaii Island, the tallest mountain in the state — Mauna Kea — will immediately transport you to the moon, according to National Geographic. Let’s take a look, shall we?
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
