Mount Alava, Pago Pago

#2 of 11 in Parks in American Samoa
Mountain · Nature / Park
Both challenging and rewarding, Mount Alava treats adventurous hikers with sweeping views, crisp mountain air, and lush green scenery. The climb takes visitors over verdan hills and up steep metal ladders, all the way to a lookout spot offering vistas of the beach down below. Be sure to come prepared with plenty of water, snacks, and footwear suitable for uneven terrain. To save your energy for the steep hike, drive or take the bus to the base of the mountain.
