One of the most important place to visit in the island. You can go with the ticket for the national park.

loved it here. Loads of Moais to see and you can wander about the quarry and see them at close hand. Would recommend a guide to explain how these were made and transported. Magnificent.

Rano Raraku is the quarry where all of the Moai Statues were carved and moved from across Easter Island. It is very well organized, so you won't get lost or off the beaten path. The upper portion of the statues is what you see here,...More
