Diamond Head Monument crater

While we stayed in Oahu, Hawaii, we decided to visit Diamond Head Monument, State Park. This place is a huge volcanic crater. This broad saucer-shaped crated was formed some 300,000 years ago in a single explosion

In order to see the crater shape, I had to hike up the trailhead of the summit, which was pretty strenuous hike up gain 560 feet up from the crater floor.

After climbing up the hiking trail, the view is phenomenal from up there.

I would recommend anyone visiting Oahu to not miss this hike up the Diamond Head State Monument, and don’t forget your camera and lens.
