Maunga Terevaka, Easter Island

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.
