Pa's Treks. Eco tourism at its best. Rarotonga, Cook Islands



the cross islands trek

Cross the island of Rarotonga and explore the rugged interior.

This is Pa�s special domain � the mountain � his temple!

The hike leads up the valley and across the island under a canopy of native trees to a steep 400 meter ascent of the Needle.

See ancient ceremonial stone, pictographs on the face of the Needle and hear legends of the ancient Polynesians.

Pa will explain how our different plants have been used through time for medicinal purposes.

The crossing of a narrow ridge at the top is neither for the faint hearted nor for those with any physical challenges.

As you descend the mountain, you�ll cross refreshing mountain streams where you can refill your water bottles.

Your trek concludes at Wigmore�s Waterfall, where you can cool off with a swim before getting back on your bus home.

For safety reasons, who goes on the walk is at Pa�s discretion. Hike takes about 3 hours.
