Mauna Kea is a dormant volcano that when measured from its underwater base is the tallest mountain in the world, measuring about 10,000 m (33,000 ft) in height, and 4,205 m (13,796 ft) above sea level. The summit is 73.7 miles or about a 1 hour and 50 minute drive from our center, and is regarded as a sacred site to the Native Hawaiian community, considered to be a place where the heavens and earth connect, as well as serving as an important source of freshwater for the Big Island. Its environment has one of the most favorable conditions for astronomical viewings in the world but the proposed construction of additional telescopes in that location continues to be met with disapproval and protest by many local residents.

The sacred mountain is one of the tallest in the world and you can often find snow on its peak. You will need a 4x4 vehicle to reach the summit but the visitor center has wonderful views from the Sunset Trail. Bring a sweater or jacket.

Mauna Kea is known as being higher than Mount Everest from the ocean floor! It’s definitely worth a visit. Be sure to check in at the visitor center for stargazing schedule and for safety information!

Unparalleled sunsets, sunrises and star gazing. Tallest sea mountain in the world. During Winter months there’s snow on top. Make sure to read the safety tips on the Mauna Kea visitor’s website.
