“The Quietest Place on Earth” was filmed to introduce Haleakalā as Maui’s geological and spiritual birthplace to a world audience. The film tells the story of Haleakalā from the perspective of local Hawaiian cultural practitioners, artists, scientists, authors, musicians, cowboys and spiritual leaders.
Due to heavy ice on Haleakalā’s summit park road, road debris, and lack of power, the Summit District remains closed until further notice. Kipahulu District is open but there are many downed trees and rocks on Hāna Highway. The pools are closed due to high water.
