Captivating Rapa Nui Photos

Some arrestingly beautiful photographs of Rapa Nui have been posted on Tiki Central by harro. Harro lives in Australia, and recently spent 5-1/2 days on Rapa Nui with a friend. It’s always interesting to hear people’s tales of travel to Easter Island — it’s so remote, and such an unusual destination, that it seems every trip has its own quirks and its own challenges, and its own life-changing rewards. So many people have been swept up by Rapa Nui; I hear time and again that it just feels like you’re on hallowed ground when you are standing near the massive stone moai.

If you’re one of those people who is fascinated by Rapa Nui, with dreams of going there someday, or returning there, be sure to check out Tiki Chris’ Rapa Nui News blog.

    Looking at the rock it appears to be wearing quite drastically. I wonder how long ago the heads were carved?

  2. Humuhumu Says:

    The Rapa Nui moai are estimated to be between 400 and 900 years old.
