We rode our hire scooter most of the way, passing two puffing trekkers walking up the steep track. Great views although the power lines interrupt panoramic shots.

360° view on Aitutaki and the lagoon needed only a 20 min walk from the road. Might be a good place to observe the sunset (don´t forget a torch).

Great views from the top - definitely worth the short hike. Still quite challenging in the heat as quite steep and a lot of bugs at the top!

We did the trek to the top in between rain showers. ADVISE: Do not do it in those conditions. the last part of the hike was very steep and on slippery small gravel, like walking on marbles. Coming down was a bit on the scary side.
The view was almost a 360 degree one. Tall brush in one sector blocked the view.
Well worth the climb.

I went up Mount Maungapu. It's a nice walk up there and you're up there pretty quickly since it's only like 130m in elevation. The walk up there feels a bit like walking through a jungle, lots of green. I did it on cloudy day so you could tell the humidity just hanging in the jungle. Up there, you have a really nice view and you can literally see entire Aitutaki, the airport, the lagoon, everything. It's a nice thing to do!

This was a nice walk and it was worth seeing the 360 view of Aitutaki. It only took us about 20 minutes to walk up, it gets a bit steep towards the end but I managed to do this in sandles (probably not the best idea though haha). Be sure to spray yourself with bug spray before you go! It is also quite hot and you feel the humidity as you get further up, take some water with you!

Which is really a low hill, though the road up is steep on a hot day. Nice walk, gorgeous view. Easy to find across from Paradise Cove hotel, a clearly-marked sign indicates the road.

Hike up here and watch an Air Rarotonga plane land or take off. This spot is the top of the island. Not as much 360 view at Piraki but more isolated feeling.

At about 300 feet above sea level it's not a tough hike. Wear shoes or runners as the trail can be tricky and sandals won't be your best option.
Once at the top you view the entire island.
Amazing views!

If you are staying on Aitutaki, take the time to visit Mount Maungapu and take in the glorious views. The road to walk up is opposite Paradise Cove Resort, is signposted, and takes only about 10-15 minutes. It gets slightly steep at one point, but nothing most able-bodied people cannot handle. The views from the top are breathtaking and help you to really take in the sheer majesty and beauty of this amazing atoll, Aitutaki. It's well worth taking the time to walk up there.
