Mt.Tapochao, Saipan

4.6
#3 of 17 in Parks in Northern Mariana Islands
Survey Saipan and enjoy 360-degree views from the island's highest point at Mt.Tapochao. You can either drive up the potholed, winding road in an off-road vehicle to reach the summit, or pack some supplies and embark on a hike to earn the views from the top. Once you reach the mountain's peak, you'll understand why the panoramic views here were so important for the island's defense during World War II. Take a photo of the iconic Jesus statue looking out over the island, then reward yourself with a snack and a cold drink from one of the local vendors at the summit.

  • Beautiful view of the whole island. Can be reached by car. Ideally planned in clear weather. One of the top 3 excursions. There was hardly anybody upstairs.

  • The scenery is the best, as is the other word of mouth. Please note that there are two mountain trails for access by car. In the end, it's a one-way road, but access from the south may be impossible without 4WD. Access from the north is not a paved road, but it is also possible by a regular car enough. It is recommended to examine it by Google etc.
