I took the signposted dirt road next to Ahu Akivi and walked 1.5 hours up a gentle uphill (1 hour downhill) to reach the top, with little shade along the way. At one point, there is a short steep path to a crater ridge with...More

Its a great hike mainly having the opportunity to see the island from a 360 perspective and realized that you are in the middle of the pacifi so so far away!

Probably the best way to get to the highest point of Easter island is by horse back. Did a great hire riding tour over half a day up the slopes of the mountain and explored the landscape.

We hiked up to the top and were not disappointed with the view of the entire island. The hike took less than 3 hours and it was not challenging, if you had an average level of fitness. The scenery was tranquil (rolling grassy hills dotted...More

I climbed Maunga Terevaka on horseback, which was an adventure in itself. The horses and hikers shared pretty much the same path to the summit. The path/trail is well marked, easy to do hiking on your own. You don't really need a guide to hike...More

This is the highest point on the island, the peak of the largest volcano and a long hike on foot. That's why we got there on horseback. Very nice ride and the views were indescribable. We could see the other 2 volcanos, the Moai quarry,...More

It takes some doing to get here: there are no roads up so the options are horseback or hiking. I rode up on a local horse with a guide and it was a wonderful experience. The views are absolutely stunning: nearly 360 degrees of ocean!...More
