The main highlight of this park is the lave tube formed by the lava flow from Mauna Loa in 1881. The Kaumana Caves are a part of the 25-mile-long lava tube that runs through Big Island. There is a flight of concrete stairs that take you to the entrance of the caves, from where you can check out some of the most extraordinary lava formations. Some of the lava that cooled down pretty quickly, are still red and this colour, gives you a visual feel of the volcanic liquid. There are vines and roots growing from the ceiling of the caves,that will give you an entirely other-worldly experience of these caves.
