Up Mount Mokoto

Yesterday was one of these incredibly clear days with southern winds (no longer chilly, but pleasantly cool) and a deep blue sky without a single cloud. We used it to hike up Mount Mokoto–apparently the second highest peak, but it looks exactly the same height as it’s neighbour Mount Duff (officially the highest mountain). The ascent wasn’t difficult, but extremely steep and despite the pleasant temperatures we were completely exhausted when we reached the peak after walking along a dangerously narrow ridge.
The view over the whole archipelago with the turquoise outer reef and countless sand banks and coral heads glittering in incredible shades of pastel blue and turquoise was simply breathtaking. If there is a place more beautiful than this one we haven’t found it yet :-)
