Maunga Terevaka, Easter Island
(4.3/5 based on 190+ 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.

  • Climb to Terevaka mountain horse is worth by the landscape along the way and the 360-degree view of the island from above.

  • Ideal for trekking or horse riding, in my case opt for the second option. Is really beautiful, especially the top where it is possible to appreciate the island in its Majesty and a good choice for panoramic photos. Stop that can not miss on your visit

  • The Terevaka is the highest point of the island with 512 meters in height. Is a road of mild difficulty where it can take good photos of the island.
