    Say "Hawaii" and the first thing that comes to mind for most people is famous beaches.

    But away from the coast you’ll find the "House of the Sun." Surrounded by a national park, Mount Haleakala is the biggest dormant volcano in the world. The peak reaches a height of 3055 metres and the crater is big enough to swallow up the island of Manhattan.

    People come from around the world to hike and – believe it or not – camp here.

    The crater terrain is like the moon, rocky and desolate with harsh and changeable weather. One of the most dramatic ways to experience Mount Haleakala is to watch the sun rise over the crater. If you do, you'll be treated to a kaleidoscope of colour Mark Twain called “the sublimest spectacle” of his life.

    Today’s time lapse travels to Hawaii’s "House of the Sun" with photographer Dan Douglas.
