History of Moorea
The name Mo’orea replaced Aimeho, commonly known as Aimeo or Eimeo, towards the end of the 18th century, during the reign of the Marama family. The change occurred after the high priest of the Nu’urua marae in Varari (Haapiti) had a vision of a beautiful yellow lizard, Mo’o Rea, which became, in a way, the emblem of this ruling family.
The majority of our hikes take place in Opunohu Valley, extending from Opunohu Bay, one of the most beautiful sites in Moorea. The fertile valley is surrounded by velvety green peaks of the mountain range. Opunohu Valley consists of a large central plain, which, according to geologists, is an extinct crater, overlooking Opunohu and Cook bays to the south. The valley floor varies between flat and undulating terrains, leading up to the mountains that form a natural amphitheater facing Mount Rotui and the two bays.
The highest peaks on the island
From here, eight mountain ranges radiate, dividing the island, poetically referred to as Aimeo i te rara varu. The highest peaks surrounding Opunohu Valley are:
- Rotui on the northern peninsula (899m)
- Tohiea, also known as Tohieva (1,207m)
- Putuputura’a; Mou’a Roa, in the shape of a needle (880m)
