Horse riding tours often bring you up here for the spectacular view out to sea. Strangely as we trotted up, the ground sounded quite hollow. The island seems to have a huge network of caves. It was very windy from the top and we could...More

Great views from the tallest point on the island! We were on a tour, so the travel was easy. If you like to hike, it is an easy hike. If you want to horse back ride, just know you may be sore afterward.

It was a great place to visit and to see practically the entire island from the top. it would have been more enjoyable without the horses that were a bit too competitive and the English-style saddles just about did everyone in. beautiful place though.

I'd recommend to visit this when you love a hike, and have some time to spare. It's just under 5km uphill, and expect to hike no less then one hour. On the way there are views of the entire island, but once you reach the...More

We hiked through the eucalyptus forest side (SE) and it was pleasant. It took about 4 hours going up and back down, so only do this if you run out of moais to go see....

We "climbed" Terevaka in August - Winter on Rapa Nui. Still needed hats for shade, and lots of water. This will take about 3 and 1/2 to 4 hours if you walk briskly and don't stop for a lot of breaks/photos. The views on the...More

It's a pleasant walk up....though it's very windy at the top. Worth it though to get a full view of the island. Combine this with visiting some of the caves on the shore (not that far away, though a 4-wheel is really needed).
