Day 24: Easter Island: Sunrise in Ahu Tongariki, Hanga Piko, Ahu Huri A Urenga, Ahu Te Pito Kura, Petroglyphs Papa Vaka, Pu O Hiro, Tongariki and Rano Raraku
- Ahu Tongariki is very large, so although there are many people, you will always find an area where you can be alone, in different angles without disturbing and without being disturbed.
- Above all, do not speak loudly or loudly, for that there are other places.
- If you want to get close to the moais do it, but try to do it when the sun has already risen at all and when most people are not taking pictures.
- Yes after sunrise in Ahu Tongariki You want to enjoy the place, visit it and be alone, you just have to wait at approximately 8:15, which is the time when the sun is already up, people start to leave and there is no one left in the enclosure. In addition the organized groups arrive around 10 in the morning, so you will have practically two hours to enjoy it alone.
We visit Papa Vaka in about 20 minutes, ending the route of one of the days we had scheduled, so we have to start with the next scheduled day, moving back to Ahu Tongariki, where we cannot resist returning, Since we want to take some photos at this time of day and where we really want to be able to sit quietly at this time and take a short break in one of the most incredible places on Easter Island.
Just a few meters ahead of Papa Vaka, we see that there is Pu or Hiro, a place that we initially did not have planned, but how could it be otherwise and being here we took the opportunity to stop a few minutes and get to know this amazing place.
Pu O Hiro
This stone, located practically on the side of the road shows us several petroglyphs related to fertility, in addition to having natural holes, for which, if blown by the upper end, it emits a trumpet sound, meaning of the name «Hiro's trumpet
