The island of Bora Bora had two extinct volcanoes, Mount Pahia and Mount Otemanu. They are not expected to erupt again, but island rumor has it that when you wander near either base, you are visited by the ghosts of two Polynesian islanders that perished trying to scale the sides of the volcanoes.
Both ghosts fell to their deaths in the late 70’s. One ghost is said to follow you and cause your disappearance. The other tries to make you scale the side of the mount hoping you will fall to your death and join him. Tourists are fascinated by these stories and seek out the ghosts by hiking to the base of one of the mounts.
Unfortunately, no one has returned when they have sought out the ghosts according to the rumors. A law has recently been signed by the mayor/president making it illegal to hunt ghosts in Bora Bora. I guess Ghost Adventures won’t be filming any volcano adventures there.
