Rano Raraku, Easter Island
(4.8/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web)
Walk among iconic moai stone heads at Rano Raraku, which provides visitors with a chance to come face-to-face, literally, with impressive centuries-old monoliths. Crane your neck back to appreciate the sheer size of the site's 397 sculptures, the largest of which would stand at 21.6 m (70.9 ft) if it could be lifted upright. Gaze out from the top of the quarry, which still contains many unfinished moai sculptures, to appreciate the nearby Rano Raraku crater lake, striking with its multicolored surrounds.

  • The highlight of Easter island! Heads everywhere! Moai half buried! Standing or leaning! While others, half sculpted, are still attached to the volcano, waiting patiently ! It is mind boggling and abs...  more »
  • One amazing place so if you take the road to the left which takes you to the crater volcano, as if you're on the right where you will see the quarry where the MOAI were carved. Here are the typical heads appearing in postcards and tourist promotions. The Park closes at 18 h, is suitable to visit him with time because you can only enter once with the input that you pay when you enter the island serving you for all national park the during your stay.

  • Another charming place on the island, only here you can realize how stone Giants are manufacturing and will begin to arise many questions regarding how drew them from that place.

  • The most Moai you can find on the island. Very cool. Don't miss the vulcano crater on the back!
  • I had been dreaming about going to meet the Moei(s) in person since I was very young! So, it is gonna be 5 stars from me fo' Shizzle! ;)
  • This is the disneyland of moai lovers. I can spend hours just walking around looking at each of the >300 moai.
  • Fabrica de Muais.
  • Trip of a life time, one of the most amazing places.
