A Jungle Hike and a Beautiful View Jan 05, 2011
The Belvedere Lookout offers travelers a stunning panoramic view of the Cook and Opunohu Bays, as well as the Opunohu Valley. The drive up to the lookout can be quite an adventure in and of itself, and 4x4 drive is highly recommended. There are many twists and turns as you quickly increase in elevation, but I promise that the view at the top is worth it.

A short distance from the Belvedere Lookout, you'll find a sign for the 3 Conconut Trees Pass Trail. This hike takes approximately four hours to complete, and is probably best suited for people with prior mountain hiking experience. Prior to setting out pack plenty of water, and sunscreen--as well as a snack--because the tropical heat can wear a unprepared hiker out quite quickly. I'd also highly recommend good hiking boots, as the trail tends to be muddy and slick in the rainforest, especially during the wet season.

The hike itself is mostly forested, with one expansive view of the island of Moorea near the top of the pass. There are views of jagged peaks beyond the treetops as you tred along, and plenty of leafy vegetation to examine at your feet. Tahitian Chestnut trees will greet you along your journey, leaving you in awe with their towering branches and prominent roots. You may even discover a Polynesian cultural relic or two. Overall, this is a great way to escape into nature and to explore Moorea in its primitive glory.
