We did not get upto the Mountain, though it is possible to do it from Vaitape island. In Dec, due to heavy rains, it wasnt very feasible to get to the top of the mountain

Spectacular views of this mountain from all Bora Bora resorts! Be sure to take a land tour as well as a boat tour of the island!

The people here are extremely rude and if you take a day trip around it, be prepared to be chased by wild dogs and looked at like you are completely sabotaging the local community

The views are awesome, especially at sunset. We stayed at the St. Regis and dined at Lagoon restaurant. Our table was out on the deck and was perfect for a sunset dinner. After dark, the under deck lighting highlighted the many fish and a couple of stingrays swimming only a foot away!

The mountain provides so many photo opportunities. Whether it be Sunrise, Sunset, or during the day as it at times interacts with the clouds.

The mountain is itn the middle of the bora bora island, surrounded by a turquoise water. If you are flying to Bora bora you will see the mountain from everyplace.

You can see the mountain from different points of view throughout the crater but when the conditions are right it's very impressive to see the vapour condense on one side of the peak to form clouds and the opposite side is crystal clear. You can buy some drinks and something to eat at Te Maroto hotel in the crater.

The secret of this mount is not how it looks, but instead the contrast it poses against it's surrounding.
