The climb up requires physical endurance. Or else leave reasonably early morning like 8am because the climb up is steep, the path up is easy to follow all the way up take some water. You can take your time to go up its about 2-3hrs...More

To start with the conclusion: yes it is worth it! But in this case the catch is better than the chase. The hike is approx 1 to 1.5 hr of steep, muddy, slippery climbing. After an hour the "ropes" start. An almost vertical rocky climb,...More

My husband pretty much forced me to go on this hike. Prior to the trip, I read about how difficult the hike was and wanted absolutely no part of it. Our boat captain told us that the hike should take 1. hrs which is pure...More

After about 20 minutes at the top we packed away the drone and headed back down the mountain. Facing downhill we were constantly looking at some of the bluest and clearest water anywhere in the South Pacific. With Maupiti a bit off the beaten track...More

Track bit overgrown and side branchs not marked so a little confusing but view well worth the climb. Track would be slippery in wet weather so best done on fine day.

We hiked this mountain in March, one of the hottest and most humid times of the year. It was a torturous, never-ending hike but my God was it worth it. Stunning post card views like I cannot even put into words. Advice: Sturdy shoes, more...More

You will have a fantastic view of Maupiti and the motus after a couple of hours hike. Well worth the time if you have a half day to spare. There's not really any need for a guide - except on the way down, where you...More

Beautiful! But careful climbing it if it's been raining! There is a point where the steep strain becomes a vertices climb where an existing rope is there to assist.

The hike was much, much harder than expected (start at the stairs in the Village, opposite the main restaurant) and a little hard to find the path. But the views up the top were well worth it!! Just for the fit and experienced hiker.

I give this 5 stars as it doesn't make sense to give a mountain less; it is what it is! However, climbers should beware. Numerous people told me that this was an "easy" climb. It isn't, at least not by my understanding of the word....More
