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.
