Haleakala Volcano Vegetation

Maui Hawaii Tourist Information and Vacation Guide

Due to the thin air, cool weather and arid conditions at the top of the Haleakala Volcano on Maui Hawaii, there is little vegetation near the summit.

A few shrubs and plants do, however, manage to survive this harsh climate.
