Ana Te Pahu, Easter Island
(4.5/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
Gain an insight into the creation of Easter Island with a visit to Ana Te Pahu, a series of lava tunnels spanning 7 km (2.4 mi), that were formed when rock solidified around a stream of molten lava. The formations served as cave dwellings used by the island’s inhabitants to shelter from the elements. The garden by the dwellings abounds with sweet potatoes, bananas, and taro. Used as a refuge from battles as well as housing during primitive times, the caves' breadth made them convenient for inhabitants. Take a flashlight and some appropriate boots for the excursion.

  • For the spirit of adventure is a cool program. Good walk, holding obstacles inside the cave and details interests that notes if you have a local guide.

  • I knew her thanks to a change of plans last minute and it was entertaining. I believe that I agreed to get me to bare foot and walk on volcanic rocks (auch!) with water to faucets only because I was with good company...
