On the Road 安全行车


Careful preparation eases the strain of traveling to new environments. Planning ahead can often make the difference between a good trip and a great trip.


Visiting an active volcano has its own inherent hazards and advance preparation is recommended.


Your safety 安全须知

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park encompasses two of the world's most active volcanoes: Kīlauea and Mauna Loa. This is a very dynamic natural area with many dangers. Educate yourself as to the hazards. Common sense is not enough. Stay Alert - stay alive!



Drive courteously and defensively. Use seatbelts and headlights. Watch for pedestrians and bicyclists. Avoid the endangered nene goose.


Trails 游道及徒步小径

Stay on marked trails! Vegetation or cinders may hide deep cracks in the ground. Use caution near cliffs, cracks, and steam vents. The edges of these features are unstable and can be slippery. Keep your children safe.


Hiking over cracks and holes, loose rock, and thin lave crust greatly increases your risk of getting hurt. Falling on lava may result in severe wounds.


Carry and drink plenty of water 一定要携带足够的水,徒步过程中要多喝水

Avoid hiking after dark (cracks, cravasses, and cliffs look like shadows-depth is not evident in the dark).



Volcanic fumes 火山烟雾

Fumes (volcanic gasses) are hazardous to everyone's health. Visitors with heart or breathing problems and infants, young children, and pregnant women are especially at risk and should avoid being in areas where fumes persist.


The eruptive vent in Halema'uma'u Crater (since 2008), Sulphur Banks, and Pu'u 'Ō'ō vent (since 1983) generate high levels of gasses that may affect visitors-even those visitors who are healthy.


Concentrations of these gasses is often dependent on wind direction. Hawai'i 's normal trade wind pattern generally blows gasses, emitted from the two main vents on Kīlauea, away from most visitor areas. However, even on a trade wind day, fumes from Pu'u 'Ō'ō and Halema'uma'u may cross a roadway or linger in other areas of the park. in this event, close your car windows and run the air conditioning on recycled air and leave the area.


There are times when the park will close due to high levels of volcanic gasses. Be flexible-closures are initiated for visitor and employee safety.


Near the ocean 海岸区域

The park's coastline does not include safe beaches or swimming areas that visitor may drive to. Expect strong winds, steep and unstable sea cliffs, and high waves.


Volcanic eruptions 火山喷发

Volcanic eruptions can occur at any time and can be extremely hazardous. Even from a distance, gasses and fallout (pele's hair, pumice and cinder) can cause lung and eye irritation.
