Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

Note: observatory was closed to the public due to covid but we went for the view at 11K ft.
The road is not for the faint of heart. It's 15 miles of hell. Undulating, climbing paved road that made everyone nauseous. Driving through a moonscape at times as you go through the cloud layer. The view was fantastic and worth the drive. You can see the Mauna Kea observatories easily as well as Maui, ocean, and more. NO restroom and it was obvious that many folks had been using a section of rocks as a bathroom (ugh!).

Very exotic but very challenging hike up to the volcano crater. The way is full of rocks beautiful but sharp so cant sit&rest really. The hike takes all day from dawn to dusk.
On the top heard to breath

Une expérience complémentaire à la montée au Mauna Kea.
Une route dans un état magnifique, qui serpente à travers des coulées de lave de différentes époques, avec toutes les nuances de noirs, gris, brillants, mats, irisés, comme une sculpture géante.
Prenez le temps d'aller au bout. Une fois arrivés, soit vous êtes courageux et vous finissez les 10 km restant à pied pour atteindre le sommet du volcan, soit vous faites comme nous, vous savourez le fait d'être là, et vous revenez sur vos pas !

Being this high on an island in the middle of the ocean is really fun. I felt like I was back on peaks in Colorado. Don't drive it if you don't have a four-wheel drive---mostly that is to protect the road. If you are into astronomy, this is THE place to see. Also, stop in Waimea and go to the visitors center.

Drove all the way up. It's a one lane road with nothing but volcanic rock on both sides. We saw maybe 15 other cars on the way up and back

The protests over the Thirty Meter Telescope continue and access to Mauna Kea is stopped, tourists can drive easily up onto Mauna Loa for the great views and star gazing.

A must visit, rented a SUV, filled the gas tank at Cosco's, preceded to Mauna Loa, a steep incline going up at a steddy pace. There was markers, at different intervals monitoring Mauna Loa. Construction was being done at the base of where an encampment of those who were monitoring the Observatory as well self contained encampments for exploratory research, which was confirmed on 60 minutes. We from a cloudy misty sky to a bright blue sky, to cloudy overcast and light rain an humid mist. As we ascended to the top we could see a break in the weather, clear sky, the Observatory's where open, as we approached they closed. We got off to see what it was like, within 20 seconds I could feel the pressure of the altitude. It hit me like a ton of bricks. With in seconds the temperature dropped to 45" degrees, with a misty wind blowing light rain, felt like bebee's hit my skin, I took a windbreaker, in case of rain and drop of temperature. You could see open vents of steam, coming from Mauna Loa, signs not to venture into the area cordoned off. An adventure for those wanting to do, something out of the norm of laying on the beach, and exploring hidden treasures. Would like to visit at night and see the sky at its splendor.

As has been noted here, this is NOT the astronomical observatory, it's a weather observatory and is not open to the public, although their website does offer that if you want a tour, you can call them. We didn't have time for that, as our intention was to hike the Observatory Trail to the summit of Mauna Loa (we failed, this is a tough hike). That said, this was still a good day. We arrived early in the morning before the clouds built up, and the view across the valley to Mauna Kea and the actual astronomical observatory were breathtaking, worth the 20 miles of winding one lane road with dozens of blind hills and corners - go slowly here. There is parking for about 3 vehicles just outside the observatory where you can pick up the trail, at about 11000 feet. If you intend to hike, come prepared, the air is thin and it's cool to cold all day, year round. Daytime highs rarely reach 60 F and nights are commonly in the 20s F. Bring extra food and water in case you get stuck out overnight, it would be impossible to follow this trail in the dark as it's just rock cairns (ahu in Hawaiian) made of lava, which don't stand out well against the hundreds of acres of lava on which they're built. It's fairly steep and again, the altitude makes it tough. It's also rocky and uneven, have light but sturdy footwear. To add to the challenge, most afternoons clouds will build up and move up the mountain reducing visibility and adding a damp chill to the air. But the views are incredible. If you do go here, please turn off your engine and run it as little as possible near the observatory, as the emissions will interfere with their measurements.

This is a tough activity. You climb from sea level to 14,000+ft within 1 hour so expect problems with acclimatisation (head ache, serious breathlessness etc). You get to the top at sunset, then it gets very cold. There is ice at the top around the year. You have to be passionate (and crazy and determined) to want to do star gazing at that altitude and the cold and the wind-chill. The temperatures can drop to below -3C. And you have to stand outside in the chill wind for over 1 1/2 hours. But if you hack it, the experience is truly unique. We saw Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn with its glorious rings, Andromeda galaxy and the M2 galaxy, various other celestial objects, our own Milky Way galaxy and finally our own moon, because it was so close to the full moon night. Seeing the moon and its various craters was an amazing sight. If you can choose a no-moon night, you will be able to see other spectacular sights.

The guide was very knowledgeable about astronomy and geography. He explained about the types of volcanoes, how they form etc.

If you are adventurous enough and mad enough to want to do it, make sure you wrap up warm with many layers of thin clothing (thick woollen clothing are not so effective in keeping you warm). Your typical pick-up time is around 2 PM and you are returned at about 9PM.

It was closed because of snow and fog so it was a nice drive up to talk to the girls working in the shop. Maybe next time
