Exploration duration

Exploration Path

We start in Ahu Tahira, a construction platform with perfectly overlapping stone structures. We go up to the rim of the Rano Kau crater, the largest in the Island and then we hike to Orongo, an ancient ceremonial village where the Birdman competition took place.

As one of the volcanoes from which the island originated, Rano Kau’s vigilant gaze defines Rapa Nui’s enigmatic cultural landscape.
