Maunga Terevaka, Easter Island
Categories: Landmarks, Tourist Spots
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.

It is of moderate duration (approximately 3 hours roundtrip) but low difficulty. We very much enjoyed the ride, we take our food and ate in the middle of the mountain. Priceless. Very few tourists.show original
Con un amigo tomamos una cabalgata al volcán, ya que sabíamos que si haciamos el trekking era fácil entre 1 o 2 horas caminando, mientras que a caballos fueron como 45 min aprox.

When we got up the best view you can get of the island with 360 ° was spectacular. The only problem was telling us the guide than as the climate changes from one second to another sometimes you can play cloudy above and in that case the terevaka loses all his magic, so careful when climbing the volcano so they can better appreciate the island. Something positive if that you nublo day down this volcano the ahu akivi which is also a place not to be missed.show original
El Terevaka es el punto más alto de Rapa Nui y desde la cima se puede ver la Isla completa, por lo que recomiendo ir en la mañana y ojala un día despejado.

Accessible on foot from the city, it is a path through the countryside, quiet, without difficulty, takes approx. 1 hour up to access. This same road leads to the Ahu Akivi, which is at the foot of the Terevaka. I recommend first visiting the Ahu Akivi, then climb to Terevaka (1 15 hrs ascent, without difficulty) and finally you can visit caves and return to the city by the coast. At the top is much wind, carry windbreaker, sunscreen and water.show original
