Amazing hike, giving you a tremendous view of Moorea! We arrived at the top just in time before the clouds came in and brought some rain while we were descending. Its not recommended to walk with rain (this wasn’t forecasted) the trail gets super slippery and therefore takes much more time going downhill and is kind of dangerous. Nevertheless the views are amazing and the hike is not that tough! Enjoy

This has been my favorite hike on Mo’orea, though Rotui was also pretty awesome and I would suggest checking it out. The hike took my friends and I five hours round trip but that included an hour break at the top. I would suggest wearing pants for the ferns can that cut up your legs, and I definitely wouldn’t do it when it’s raining. Also, the last section is rather steep but has ropes to help you get to the top. The hike is super cool and highly recommend it to anyone inclined.

What a hike, and what a view!!! The hike starts off with a steep vertical section, then you follow a creek up through the valley (crossing back and forth over the creek a dozen times or so). After a short section through the forest, you reach the sun exposed ridge. Absolutely do not do this in the rain (or if it has been raining), the last portion is challenging enough as is :)

A hike with everything...river crossings, shade through tropical forest sections, sun on exposed ridges, vertical rope sections and amazing views. A challenging hike/climb with an amazing summit. Weather dependent.
