The West Maui Mountains or West Maui Volcano, known to Hawaiians as Maui Komohana and to geologists as Mauna Kahalawai, forms a much eroded shield volcano that constitutes the western one-quarter of the Hawaiian Island of Maui

The three moku or districts of west Maui are Lāhaina, Kāʻanapali, and Wailuku.
Wailuku is also known as Pūʻalikomohana, or Nā Wai ʻEhā which means the four waters.
The 4 waters are the ahupuaʻa (smaller land division than district), which are Waikapū, Wailuku, Waiʻehu, and Waiheʻe - Wikipedia
The port of Lāhainā lies on the southwestern slope.
The summit peak is called Puʻu Kukui, at 5,788 feet (1,764 m) elevation.
