Kula is a district of East Maui, Hawaii that stretches across the "up-country", the western-facing slopes of Haleakalā, from Makawao to Ulupalakua. Most of the residential areas lie between about 500 to 1,100 m (1,800 ft to 3,700 ft) in elevation. The district has traditionally been where full-time residents prefer to live, as distinct from the generally hotter and busier tourist town near sea level such as Kihei and Lahaina.
