"Mount Panié: The Top of New Caledonia" Massif du Panié by hunwagner

Massif du Panié Travel Guide: 19 reviews and 21 photos

At 1628 metres, Mount Panié is the highest mountain in New Caledonia. It is surrounded by what is possibly the best remaining block of virgin forest in the territory, and has been declared a nature reserve.
The climb to the peak is a rather steep, hard slog, but takes you past varied vegetation zones, rich endemic birdlife and stunning views of both coasts of Grande Terre.
If you are any bit interested in nature or hiking, this is an area not to be missed!

    My goodness ! This looks almost untouched !! Thanks for a very exciting description of such a hiking gem :-)) I love these trails which you have to find or squeeze yourself through and which are not yet "hiking streets" :-))
