On the quest to find the Tiare Apetahi

The Tiare Apetahi is a very rare flower in Polynesia. You can find this flower only on Raiatea Island where some rare species are still growing. To see her, you need to climb up during 3 hours towards the top of the Mount Temehani (around 1000m high). Once you're there, you must search carefully to find one of these flowers but also be carefull to not damage them. It's a very precious and protected flower on Raiatea, making it to the symbol of the island.
