Exploration Path

We begin this hike in Mahatua, in the Poike peninsula. We hike up a cliff to trachyte or white rock domes. We visit the hills in this area, hike along the coastline and pass sites with archaeological remains, including the only trachyte moai. We continue walking up to Tongariki, the location of 15 moai. Return to the hotel by van.

The Poike zone, named after the oldest volcano on the island, offers some of its most unusual sceneries, with harsh conditions evidencing how the Rapa Nui is eroded by sea and water, one of the its people’s most pressing ecological predicaments.
