Mauna Kea Hawaii

Marvel At The Worlds Tallest Mountain

Measuring a staggering 10,000 metres tall, Mauna Kea is the world's tallest mountain, surpassing even Mount Everest and is thought to be around a million years old.

An astonishing natural sight that sits within Hawaii Island's calm surroundings, Mauna Kea is not only spectacular to see at a distance but is also a treasure to summit with regular driving trips up to the top. Here, you'll find the Mauna Kea Observatories; an international centre for astronomy with 13 telescopes. Learn more about Hawaii's astronomy programme, and sign up for a star gazing excursion where you'll get to marvel at the nights sky as dusk turns to dark.
