One of the most amazing attractions of Easter Island. In this Ahu it is possible to observe the cultural characteristics of the inhabitants of Rapa Nui in the megalithic stage.
Tongariki is the largest reconstructed site in all of Polynesia. It has fifteen Moai that were restored between 1992 and 1995, after a devastating tsunami from the east. This natural disaster demolished much of the original structure, dragging Moai from 80 tons to 500 meters. towards the interior of the island.
This site is located in front of the Rano Raraku volcano, 2 km away.
