My experiences, knowledge, findings and musings on Tahiti
Next to Papeete lies a might mountain called Mt Aorai, sweeping past the city at a height of 2066m.
If you are sick of beaches and water activities on your tahitian adventure, why don't you head to the mountains? Mt Aorai provides some of the best views on the island. It's a hard but rewarding climb, and is highly recommended for anyone with a couple days to spare in Tahiti. Moorea island can easily be seen in the distance.
