If you drive yourself, you have to pay a parking fee of $5. A good place to climb the telescope. I do not like climbing mountains, do not like steps, Diamond Head Mountain is either a step or a stone road, for the beauty of the mountain I do not stop. Half way up the hill, you can overlook the crater. Near the summit, there is a small viewing platform. It can overlook the peninsula. The trail is a little challenging. The first half is a ramp, and the second half needs to climb two sets of 175 steps, passing through the remaining U.S. military fortresses. They also need flashlights to go through dark tunnels or old military bunkers. However, walking slowly is not very difficult. After climbing the summit, you can get a panoramic view of the southern coast of Oahu Island and the charming Waikikiki Beach. The viewing platform above is an excellent place to view the whole Waikikiki and take pictures of this trip for self-entertainment. On the top of the hill, I saw a man with five babies in his superdaddy. Chinese dads smelled bad when they changed their diapers. That's the difference.
One of the most worthwhile places to visit in Hawaii is 360 degree seascape, mountain view and city view. The only drawback is that there are too many tourists! Hiking here requires a pair of comfortable sneakers, and do a good job of anti-slump measures and take water! Diamond Hill, located in Honolulu, Oahu Island, is one of Hawaii's most famous landmarks, close to Waikikiki, which is one of the reasons why there are so many tourists! Diamond Mountain is an extinct volcano formed by volcanic eruption. Its age ranges from 400,000 to 500,000 years, but geologists believe that it erupted for a few days at most. The origin of its name is that when British sailors discovered Diamond Mountain in the 19th century, they mistook the calcite crystal on the beach at the foot of the mountain as a diamond! It also has a Hawaiian name, Le Ahi, which means tuna, because the shape of the Diamond Ridge is a little like the dorsal fin of tuna! You can drive through the tunnel into the volcanic pit of Diamond Mountain. Tickets are $1/pedestrian or $5/car. Cash only! It's open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. all year round, but it's not allowed to go up the mountain at 4:30 p.m. In 1909, the U.S. Army established the earliest military base in Hawaii. At present, there are still about 1.4 kilometers of trails for tourists to reach the top of the mountain. The trails were originally used only for military purposes, and many military facilities such as burrows and tunnels are still preserved on the mountain. Uphill and downhill need special attention to safety, some sections of the stone ladder is very steep, need to pass through the tunnel is also relatively dark! By Youli Zhao
When we went to Hawaii during the spring vacation (March), the sunrise time was already very early. We got up at about 5:30 in the morning and drove to Diamond Hill for about 10 minutes. By the time of Diamond Hill, about 5:40, it was already dawn, and the local residents (mainly Japanese) had begun to descend, but only then did we go slowly. Climb up the hill. Some steps are steep, so it's better to wear sneakers to Diamond Hill. It feels like it's mainly a place for local people to go for morning transportation. Of course, there are also tourists like us who specialize in seeing "sunrise" and enjoying Honolulu. It's funny when we climb the mountain. Brother Xiao asks you "Honolulu is where we climb," Attention. Honolulu is the Chinese name of Honolulu, the place where Mr. Sun Yat-sen called overseas Chinese people to donate money to save the country, and this mountain is called Diamond Mountain. It is an active volcano 232 meters high.

Only the top of the mountain has a view, overlooking the whole Waikikiki Beach Waikiki Beach beach, the scenery is still beautiful. If you drive to Diamond Hill, you can either arrive before 8 a.m. or after 8 a.m., you'd better come directly in the afternoon, otherwise the administrator will not let you go without a parking space. Five knives per car, single entry. It takes half an hour to forty minutes from the entrance to the top of Diamond Hill. Remember to wear comfortable shoes. Diamond Peak is the best place to enjoy the scenery of Oahu Island, 360 degrees without dead angle panorama, the scenery is absolutely admirable. But the viewing platform at the bottom of the mountain is very, very small and crowded. Diamond Mountain is a good scenic spot!!
Diamond Hill is the landmark of Hawaii and an extinct volcano. The mountain scenery should be good. It's hard to find the entrance for hiking up the mountain. In the crater, you need to buy a dollar ticket through the Kahala Passage to get up the mountain. You can see the volcano is not far from the hotel or walk there. It took 50 minutes to walk from Wikikipedia to Kahala Passage, 30 minutes to buy tickets, a circuitous path to the top of the mountain, and a black tunnel between 200 steps to the top of the mountain behind the first viewing platform. In fact, the top of the mountain was the military fortress of the former US army, and it was quite drifting to climb out of the shooting hole of a blockhouse. Lighting, north of Wangweijiji beach, east of Koko volcano, south of the lighthouse, west of the endless Pacific Ocean, the crater of the volcano like a big pot [snickering].

We visited the market of agricultural products which is open every Saturday morning under the hill. Then we climbed on foot. It was a very relaxed exercise. We must climb the top of the mountain on foot. It is impossible to drive up the mountain. The mountain is not high and there are some steps. But it is absolutely worthwhile to have a panoramic view of Waikikiki Beach after climbing the top of the mountain.
You can take Bus No. 2 to Diamond Hill in Waikikiki. The terminus is nearby Diamond Hill. There are bazaars from 7:30 to 9:30 every day.

It is said that Captain Cook, the first Englishman to discover the Hawaiian Islands, saw blue light coming out of the whole hill at night, shining like sapphire. He thought he had found a diamond, so he called it Diamond Hill, while the local Chinese thought it was like a Wolong. From Wikipedia to Diamond Hill, driving or taking a bus is very convenient.
