Pre­par­ing for a lava hike

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - OUTDOORS -

• Pack a wa­ter­proof jacket. The weather is un­pre­dictable and it can get chilly at night dur­ing the re­turn hike.

• Wear long pants as a fall can cause not only bruises but deep cuts.

• Wear gloves, as we tend to use our hands to break our fall. Lava rocks are sharp.

Pu’u Loa pet­ro­glyphs or rock carvings record the cul­ture of an­cient Hawai­ians.

New lands are cre­ated when lava flows into the sea.
