Mount Tukosmera is the tallest mountain on Tanna, Vanuatu. It is located in the southern part of the island. It was a volcano in the Pleistocene, but is no longer active, unlike Mount Yasur.

The mountain has special religious significance for the adherents of the John Frum movement, as a place from which gods come.[citation needed]
