Kula Highway to Ulupalakua

 Kula Highway to Ulupalakua 

Kula: most Mauians say it with a hint of a sigh. Why? It’s just that much closer to heaven. On the broad shoulder of Haleakala volcano, this is blessed country. From the Kula Highway most of Central Maui is visible, from the lava-scarred plains of Kanaio to the cruise ship–lighted waters of Kahului Harbor. Beyond the central valley’s sugarcane fields, the plunging profile of the West Maui Mountains can be seen in its entirety, wreathed in ethereal mist. If this sounds too dramatic a description, you haven’t been here yet.The area, hugging the slopes of Haleakala, is known for its agriculture and has been farmed since early times. Today, Upcountry has cultivated a reputation for harvesting strawberries, onions, protea and lavender and raising cattle and goats. Upcountry is more than just a location; it’s a way of life. It’s the perfect balance of country and secluded Hawaii. With its laid-back charm, natural beauty and breezy farm-to-table commitment, Kula perfectly encapsulates Upcountry Maui. Here the air is cooler, the rolling hills greener and the space wide open.
