Terevaka is the largest, tallest, and youngest of Easter Island’s three main extinct volcanoes. Standing at 500 m (1,664 ft) tall, its summit is the highest point on the island. The reward for the hike to the top: a spectacular 360° landscape view. You can...More

We started hiking from Ahu Akivi (the road leading up to Terevaka is clearly marked) and it took about 3 hours there and back, including a break at the top. It is a pleasant, not too strenuous hike if you have at least an average...More

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
