The Five Mountains
The five awe-inspiring mountains that encircle Kalāhuipuaʻa are a testament to the island's volcanic origins and the powerful forces that shaped its breathtaking landscape. Towering over the island, Haleakalā is an enormous shield volcano on Maui that stands at 10,023 feet above sea level. Kohala, the oldest of the five volcanoes on the Big Island, is an extinct shield volcano that last erupted around 120,000 years ago. Mauna Kea, meaning "White Mountain" in Hawaiian, is a dormant volcano that reaches a staggering 13,803 feet above sea level. As a sacred site for native Hawaiians, Mauna Kea is also home to a collection of world-renowned observatories that peer into the cosmos. Mauna Loa, is another shield volcano on the Big Island and one of the largest volcanoes on Earth. Finally, Hualālai is the youngest and closest volcano to Mauna Lani, having last erupted in 1800-1801. With its soft slopes and picturesque coastline, Hualālai is a prime destination for beachgoers and adventure seekers alike.
A Traditional Imu
Cooking with a traditional imu, or Hawaiian underground oven, is an incredible culinary experience steeped in rich cultural heritage. This ancient method of cooking involves an expertly engineered pit dug deep into the earth, lined with porous volcanic rocks that retain and conduct heat exceptionally well. Wood, usually from the indigenous kiawe tree, is then set ablaze, heating the rocks until they reach the optimal temperature. Once the fire subsides, a layer of banana leaves and ti plants is laid upon the sizzling stones, creating a natural steaming chamber infused with aromatic plant essences. The food, often including whole pigs, fish, and root vegetables such as taro and sweet potatoes, is carefully wrapped in additional banana leaves and placed atop the aromatic bed, followed by a final layer of leaves and a generous covering of earth to seal in the heat.
