Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

More than meets the eye. Here's the plan. Drive on a sunny day. See & reflect on all the spots you visited, from up high. For more in depth appreciation, before you go up, youtube WW2 Battle of Saipan and Marianna's Trench . Realize you are standing on the history of Western freedom and the tallest mountain in the world. That's a 5.

A person can see the whole island from up here. There are plaques with a history of the liberation from WW2 to read as well. We enjoyed coming up here and seeing everything.

It's a place where you can see the whole island in 360 degrees. It's awesome how they preserve such places where people can look back and reminisce how it was more than 50 years ago. It is cooler when you are at the top and it is the tallest mountain in the island. You might need 4x4's to get there because the road going up is not yet paved. It's the best place to your quiet times.

Absolutely worth the drive BUT don't bring a sports car or a small car on the road up the mountain. It is a very rough ride. You need a truck or an SUV. But the view!!!! Don't miss it!

The drive up was long and bumpy. (Anywhere worth seeing in Saipan has unpaved, rutted roads, but this was an especially long stretch of bad road.) However, once you get there, the view is amazing. You can see all sides, the whole island. Very Cool.
I also really enjoyed the historical information plaques that were placed around the viewing area. You likely won't want to spend a long time here, but it is absolutely worth the drive to get the view.

Great place to visit and you can not miss it while in Saipan, you can see the whole island from there when the weather is clear. Road to get to the top is not very good as of Feb 2017. But you can park somewhere before reaching the top. Not recommend to go when raining.

I knocked this down a point only because of the horrible road leading up to it. That really is the only complaint because once there, it's beautiful. Only problem I had was that it was raining beforehand so there was plenty of fog that I had to wait to burn off before I could see anything.

Well worth the effort to get to the highest point on Saipan where the surrounding views are truly spectacular. Sunrise and sunset are great; but any time is worth the trip. There is also considerable World War II history in this area, as well as some post-war history as being the area of a CIA training camp. Enjoy!

The road to the top is not paved, but is in fair shape; we did it in a toyota corolla without any problems. You can see the whole island from the viewpoint. There are some interpretative signs discussing the stages of the battle for Saipan

I actually just stumbled up to Mt. Tapochao while driving around the island...what a pleasant surprise! Definitely worth the drive - I made it up in a small sedan (it was a bumpy ride, but it's possible!) Lots of WW2 History to read about up there as well.
