Mauna Kea Summit

At 4,205 meters (13,800 feet), Hawaii's tallest peak gets frosted by snow in winter. In fact, Mauna Kea holds the world record at 10,211 meters (33,500 feet) when measured from its submerged base to its summit, compared with Everest's 8,848 meters (29,000 feet)! The dormant volcano is home to the native gods and ideal for stargazing, either with the naked eye or the huge telescopes dotting the summit. Go earlier and you’ll get an orange blaze—and maybe an elusive green flash—during sunset too.
