Hawaii’s Mount Haleakala Is Considered To Be One Of The Quietest Places On Earth

Covering approximately 33,000 acres of land on the island of Maui — just 27 square miles short of equaling the entire size of Oahu — Mount Haleakala is easily one of the most iconic landscapes you’ll find in the Aloha State. The dormant volcano comprises 75 percent of Maui and is home to desert-like conditions, rainforests, and everything in between. While we’ve shared all about Haleakala in the past, we just discovered one of the mountain’s unique secrets and can’t wait to share it with you.
