Walk through the heart of Raiatea and discover bamboo forests and 3 waterfalls along your route.
The 3 Hamoa Waterfalls hike
Start this beautiful adventure at the foot of Mount Temehani, the highest point of the island. The path snakes its way between giant roots of the Mape (Tahitian chestnut tree), following the river. The bamboos, long ago cultivated because of their multiples uses, remind us of the past of the valley, an ancient inhabited place. While you’re exploring the lush forest you might run into the mythical tiare apetahi, the rare flower that only wants to grow on mount Temehani, despite all the efforts of botanists, it just won’t grow on any other place on earth. Your guide will not miss to tell you the legend surrounding this delicate flower. The 3 waterfalls are discovered one after the other during the hike. Once you have arrived at the top, enjoy a well deserved swim in an enchanting setting.
