Aloha gang! Lava flows continue to be active on the northern part of Pu’u O’o crater. Flows continue to enter the forest and small breakouts continue to ooze out in half a dozen area’s on the Kahaualea forest reserve. These flows are inaccessible at this time. But we have good news. Our guides have reported to view some Lava flows on the Pulama Pali which is viewable from the County Viewing area. Also residents from Kalapana Gardens have reported Lava flows have intensify in the last couple nights. These flows are just hints of the Peace Day tube system being active at this time. Tours may resume this week. These flows at this time is long and difficult. We have taken tours in that area before more than once and this hike is not for wimps. Our staff will be scouting this flow in the next coming days from air and land. Stay tuned for more updates.
As for our new tours that we will be offering soon, stay tuned for our Rain Forest Lava Hike. This Hike will involve a cultural hiking tour through a native Hawaiian Forest with Native Hawaiian birds in the forest canopy chirping away. Then enter an active crater with beautiful views of a Lava lake. We’d like to Thank Phillip Ong from Volcano Discovery for an awesome guided hike to this amazing area. Stay Tuned for that soon. We will be conducting these tours as soon as possible. Mahalo!
Here are some photo’s of our Hike with Phillip Ong from Volcano Discovery.
