Has anyone gone to the Kazumura Lava Tube? Do you have to take a tour? I can't seem to find directions only tour companies.

interesting post, dakine...

Since the state of Hawaii owns and retains all mineral rights, does not the state automatically own any/all lava tubes or caves as well?

There is a relatively new state law that prohibits traveling in lava tubes under another person's property without permission. Few people know about it, and some lava tube tour vendors are in denial about it.

I don't know why the Hawaii State Public Library System doesn't have a copy, but the Hawaii Speleological Survey put out a book, "Kazumura Cave atlas : Island of Hawaii : surveyed 1993 through 2000 with compass, inclinometer and tape by the Hawaii Speleological Survey," in 2004. The only place I can find so far that has it is ????Western Kentucky University???? There is a small map from the book at: http://www.cavegraphics.com/Kazumura Atlas Page.html. There is also a map of the Kipuka Kanohino cave system in Ka'u at: http://www.cavegraphics.com/Kanohina3dMap.html.

There is also some interesting stats on Kazumura and the other largest lava caves at: http://www.acave.us/llcave.htm.

Interesting article. What a wide variety of features. The authors, Kevin and Carlene Allred, are two of the three authors of the "Kazumura Cave Atlas" book.

Also, the Kapolei branch of the Hawaii State Public Library System does have the juvenile book, "Kazumura Cave : the world's longest lava tube" by Brad Burnham (Call # H 551.447 Bu) as does UH Hawaii Manoa and Maui College.

Greg, I believe the lava genitalia is located in the Kazumura Cave. I know it's in HPP.

Since this thread is 2 years old I thought I'd revive it and see if anybody knew of new maps that may have surfaced online?

I met someone last fall who lives in Orchidland and is very close to the entrance of the cave called "Pele's Vagina." I don't know if it's what you are speaking of, but people from many countries come here looking for it.
