Set off from the Belvedere and hike through the forest where your guide will teach you about Polynesian plants and their uses. The trail will take you to the pass that looks over the island's crater, mountains and lagoon; the perfect place to sample some local fruit before heading back for a swim in the river.47 USD per adult
Your trek starts at the Panoramic Viewpoint in ?Ôpûnohu valley. On the path crossing the forest you will discover useful Polynesian plants :
- those used for fishing, those used for dressing using Banyan tree bark for the making of ?Tapa? cloth, those used for lighting at night.
Once in the bamboo forest, your guide will show you how to cook using bamboo.
The standpoint is at the foot of the ?Mou?a roa? mountain. Standing on the edge of the Caldera you will stare at the many mountain ridges of Moorea - the ?Speared Mountain?, ?Rotu?i? and ?Tohi?e?a mountains.
