Ahu Tongariki, Easter Island

(5/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
Match the intense gaze of the 15 moai monuments staring back at you at Ahu Tongariki. Lined up in a row, as if protecting the coast against invaders, the massive monoliths represent perhaps the most iconic attraction on Easter Island. Despite damage caused by a 1960 tsunami, the restored monoliths remain as intimidating and mysterious as ever. Channel your inner creative and take some amazing photographs, playing with the angles and the light to perfectly capture all 15 monuments in a single frame. Put Ahu Tongariki on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Hanga Roa itinerary builder.

  • With Rano Raraku, Ahu Tongakiri visit, deserves it the journey alone! The ahu, with its 100 m long, the largest of the island's already impressive, but it's nothing compared to the fifteen Moai that there have been identified, all are on average 5 to 8 metres high, the largest with its Pukao is 11 meters high! It is probably here, taking the more aware the Titanic size of this company! I recommend this tour by arriving early, before the arrival of tourists, because silence further strengthens the impression of Majesty of the place.
