Walking Tours

w1

From the wetland areas covered by mangroves on shorelines, semi-agricultural forests to dry savannah, vegetation in Yap varies depending on the environment.

For bird watching, walking early in the morning will be the best. When walking into thick jungle area via a stone paved path of a village, you will find yourself surrounded by the lively twitter of birds. Yap monarch (Monarcha godeffroyi) and Micronesian fantail are often seen.

It is also good timing for finding a variety of mushrooms and rare flowers before morning dew dries up. Finding carnivorous pitcher plant (Nepenthes rafflesiana) quietly waiting for insects or secretly blooming bitter ginger (Zingiber zerumbet) may give another pleasure.

When coming out on top of the vantage hill after walking through dense jungle, get timely view of double rainbows! You might sometimes get rain a while during walking but it may turn out blessed to such a lucky chance!

 

w5

Since the highest peak of Yap is 178m/584ft, hiking is relatively mild, reaching soon to the top of the savannah hills and getting view of wide open ocean. There are also several war relics from WWII to be explored during walking tours for those with historical interests.

There are two categories of walking tours according to duration and course. Depending on your interest and purpose of walking, we will guide you to choose a course from several options.
