Ahu Vaihu, Hanga Roa
(4.2/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
Feel the mysteries of Easter Island at Ahu Vaihu, a complex of ruins surrounded by verdant cliffs and azure ocean. You can inspect eight examples of "moai," the famed statues of Easter Island, at the site. The eight moai, however, have been felled over time, and now lie face down with broken necks, the weakest parts of the moai structures. Pay special attention to the paina, a circle of stones where rituals and ceremonies would take place.

  • That would be a very great O'ahu. The moai are all lying, sometimes broken. But the ahu is very large. The view around, on the South coast of the island is superb. You can see at glance 2 volcanoes opposite the island.

  • Different locations are not restored and so remained in its original state. This is such a location. The opinions are divided but I think it is a good thing that some of the Ahu in this way have been preserved

  • Within the circuit paleontological this Ahu is a must, this retained such as when it was used.
