Maunga Terevaka, Easter Island

(4.3/5 based on 200 reviews on the web)
Climb to the summit of Maunga Terevaka, the tallest of three main volcanoes that Easter Island is comprised of. The long but gentle hike takes you to the 504 m (1,644 ft) tall peak of the extinct volcano. Bring suitable footwear to embark on the three- to four-hour hike along isolated, grassy slopes. From the volcano’s highest point, you can enjoy a stunning 360-degree view of the whole Rapa Nui island on a clear day. Do the trek by foot or on horseback; bring refreshments for a picnic on the windy summit. Maunga Terevaka is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Hanga Roa Edition.

  • not everyone has the possibility of going because it takes a lot of trekking and horseback rides are expensive, but worth it, is the curvature of the Earth and the island at 360 °

  • I was 5 days in Rapa Nui, these 4 with rain. On a single day with good weather was making the path to mount Mauga Terevaka. Stay in touch with all that nature and be alone, was a transformative experience. There is no indicative cards, darts, marks, anything for you pointed. So our instincts are. Our ancestral experiences come to light, and a little mark on the floor, or a rock are for your guidance. After all the walking comes the prize: being able to look all over the island, in a 360º vision. Recommend!

  • After trekking rather short a little strenuous due to the high temperature and lack of shadow will reach the Summit High Island, is simply great, it is worth going.
