Exposed to prevailing winds and therefore more humid, the East Coast presents landscapes of luxuriant forests along a narrow coastal strip inserted between the mountains and the ocean. This is an opportunity to take an extraordinary stroll to meet the Kanak people.
The route from Koné to Tiwaka connects the West Coast to East Coast passing through the Col d'Amos. Bamboo forest on a river bend and majestic tree ferns dominate the route. The population, largely Kanak, lives in the heart of a tropical setting with successive luxuriant valleys and waterfalls, where large estuaries and rivers are everywhere.
Authentic and undeveloped, the coastline is a series of small villages, each with many tribes whose traditional huts, with pointed roofs emerge from the vegetation.
Beautiful sites, worthy of a song: Ciu waterfall between Canala and Nakety, or the majestic one at Tao and the unavoidable Poule de Hienghène, a city on the shore of the estuary known for its cliffs of lindérlique, black limestone formations, of which most famous are a hen and a sphinx.
