Ranu Raraku is a vulcan crater on the Easter Island. It was the quarry for the original inhabitants of this beautiful island. Out of the volcanic rocks they made their stone figures (Moais). After completion of this figures they transported the heavy weight Moais to the shrines evenly spreaded all over the island.
Great image Marvin. What I would like to know is how on earth did these people transport these huuuge figures. They must be an immense weight.
Hi! How long does it take to take a tour around the island? (to see everything interesting)
We have been there for five days. I think this is enough to see everything interesting. But i recommend to stay there 7 days. Then you can make your expeditions in a calm way.
An amazing place!!
