This is the most interesting site to visit on Easter island, the quarry place where all Moai carving took place. The national park ticket only
Allows entry once to this site, so ensure you give yourself enough time to explore. There are almost 400 Moai in different stages of construction, some damaged during transportation and abandoned on the grass. As you
Walk the paths Look for the special kneeling Moai, and the moais still imbedded within the stone,
Partly carved. Walk up the trail behind the quarry to the reservoir (bring a packed lunch nice to eat here at the reservoir) you can see some more Moai on the backside of the quarry hill (although no path access) the reservoir at the back is place for an annual triathalon competition for the Rapa Nui men- they swim across and run laps
Carrying bushel of bananas. Like a recreation of the Birdman completion that use to be held in Orongo. Respect the site, don't touch the Moai and Stay on the paths, security will take any rule breaking very seriously, we saw a group be evicted.
