Shangri-La’s Villingili Resort & Spa, Maldives claims high peak in Maldives

Shangri-La’s Villingili Resort & Spa, Maldives claims high peak in Maldives

Maldives, 25 November 2013 – The world’s small mountain, Mount Villingili, at Shangri-La’s Villingili Resort & Spa, Maldives has just been officially certified as a high point in the Maldives, which is known for being flat and low.

Mount Villingili stands at a modest 5.1 metres and is located at tee number eight on Villingili’s Golf Course – the only golf course in the Maldives.  Despite its humble height, it dwarfs over the previously known a high point on Addu Atoll that stands at only 2.4 metres above sea level.

From 25 November 2013, visitors may conquer Mount Villingili with the opening of a daily Mount Villingili Tour.  They will be issued a certificate confirming that they have climbed the islands’ high point, a great memento of their trip to the Maldives.

This new activity will join the list of activities Shangri-La’s Villingili Resort & Spa, Maldives already offers to its guests.  It includes a guided bicycle tour between Maldivian villages, which are linked by a series of bridges throughout the atoll; a historical tour on the island of Gan, a former British Navy base during the World War II; a guided tour of local farms on Meedhoo Island that provides an opportunity to see first-hand the source of locally grown produce used within the resorts’ restaurants; and a guided nature trail with a local naturalist from the resort’s Eco Centre.
