It’s a fairly tough climb to reach Mt Hiro (437m), the impressive rocky wall that looms above the eastern part of the island, but the 360-degree panorama at the summit is well worth the effort. There are two access trails; one starts from Anatonu and the other from Vaiuru. Allow three hours for the return trip.

The path is relatively well marked, but it’s best to go with a guide – contact your pension for securing one (about 3500 CFP).
