Xplore Mauna Loa - Manoa Sea to Summit Expedition
Aug 16-22nd
A team of 7 students from the University of Hawaii at Manoa summited Mauna Loa, the world’s largest mountain, on Aug. 20. The eight-person, seven-day, 45-mile Sea to Summit Expedition followed the historic Ainapo Trail. The trail was built by ancient Hawaiians and is the steepest and most difficult path to the summit, some 13,680 feet above sea level. This trail is the same path English naturalist Archibald Menzies followed in 1794, to become the first Western scientist to successfully scale and record the height of the largest mountain on Earth. More than 215 years later, the group was the largest UH student-led expedition to summit Mauna Loa.
