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 top the view isn't better then halfway up. It can be quite cold up there,... More

The day after we took a guided tour, we rented a car to explore. This area was nice. We only saw a total of 4 people hiking. One couple had a small cooler. It was hot that day but we enjoyed it. Do not forget to bring water to drink, wear sunscreen and a hat. Comfortable shoes are a must.

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 went up by horse with a guide, usually takes four hours return, we did it in three but our bums are paying for it next day... AMAZING views from the top, 510 meters up and a 16km trek to boot!!! This is a must do once you've done your statues!

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 gentle long climb up are beautiful - if coming from the area of the sheep...

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).

Very impressive natural cave but it does require some hiking. It has writing and was the place where Birdman contestants stayed prior to beginning the contest.

We took horses up....glad we did as there really aren't very good alternatives....but also it was a bit tough to sit for the next several days. I actually think teh view from Poike is better.

You can either walk up or go by horse. You have a fascinating view of the entire island and the ocean on all sides. It is well worth the effort of getting up there.
