Bora Bora Hike Photo Gallery

Ken and Drew set out to climb Bora Bora's second tallest peak, at over 2000 feet. They set off early from the town at Viatape following a 'path' that took them to the summit. The 'path' wasn't what they were expecting. The mountain is quite steep and instead of having a switchback path you'd see in the Cascades, it led straight up the mountain. At one point, there was even a rope they had to hold on to as they walked up the face. The following are the breathtaking pictures from their hike.
