Te Manga the highest mountain in Rarotonga


lets start off with how you get there!

Make sure you carry plenty of water and all the gear you might need if something gos wrong. If your in Avarua, go clockwise around the island. After three kilometres, turn left, heading inland. you want to be on the inland circuit road so when you get to it turn left, and then almost immediately right onto a road running parallel to Tupapa Stream. Follow this road/track past the houses on the left. Keep going as far as you can, this road eventualy leads to the start of the track. If your lucky you might meet the friendly dogs tour guides like we did.
