  • The road up to the top needs to have the roadside trimmed back but it's worth the climb. Don't wear anything but proper footwear. Take a camera,water and sunscreen.  more »
  • Maunga Pu Summi, also known as Mount Maungapu, as the Aitutaki people said "it is a high hill, not a mountain", yes, it's not a mountain, just a little high mountain, hahaha ... The altitude is only 124 meters high, the foot of the mountain to the peak about half an hour hike, along the road are small broken roads, if you go to a fork junction, continue to walk to the left gravel road, when the television and radio signal base station on behalf of the peak has been reached; If you choose to drive, it is advisable to park in the open space next to the foot entrance. , please do not worry about the car will be trailer or stolen unsafe factors, I live in Aitutaki this 5 days 4 nights, my door is not locked, the boss said this is not necessary; pull away a little bit, if the car arrived at the foot of the hill is not recommended to open the mountain, the mountain is a bit steep and are gravel; I'm going to open the middle of the platform like I do , the last stretch of almost 60° on the steep slope on the walk up, after the summit will see the beautiful scenery is absolutely shocking! It's so beautiful to stand at the top of the Aitutaki, especially in the distant lagoon atoll!!! In addition, if the time is relatively abundant can also go to another called Piraki Lookout High Point, where the Aitutaki storage of fresh water, the last thing to remind is that there are a lot of banana trees, palm trees or papaya trees, because this is the source of local income, do not pick to eat at random!!!
