Mount Otemanu, Bora Bora

4.6
#2 of 13 in Nature in Society Islands
Head up to the base of Mount Otemanu, an impressive natural monument whose volcanic rock peak marks the highest point on Bora Bora. While the brittle, jagged, 727 m (2,385 ft) summit is too inhospitable to be accessed, you can hike or take a 4x4 trip up to the base of the mountain. The latter option remains the most popular, because of the jungle's density and the difficulty of the walk. Look up at the black, rugged top of the mountain (visible across the island) as it stands in sharp contrast to the lush greens and bright blues of most of the landscape.

  • Damp air is stagnant at the top seems to be in the clouds, clouds like always rests. I think people see a cloudless otemanu is lucky.
