Another mystery here when you see how well constructed the stone walls are, reminiscent of those walls constructed by the Incans. You will enjoy the sights here other than the stone walls.

Nothing can compare to Tongariki but keep in mind every Ahu on the Island has been restored. Seeing this one will make you appreciate what the Rapa Nui people did to the Ahu's before they destroyed them and realize how much hard work was put...More

You can't touch Tongariki and Ahu Akivi, but Ahu Vinapu is still a must see and a pretty cool site in its' own right.
