  • You still need to walk a good distance to reach Ana Kakenga after you passed the entrance sign. But the place definitely worth all the hiking. Rapa Nui is a volcano terrain, wear hiking shoes. Ana Kakenga is a cave with a very narrow entrance via a hole on the ground. You definitely need to crawl and with a good flashlight (iPhone's flashlight is life-saving utility!) for about 6 meters then the room opens up. It then splits into two tunnels overlooking the ocean. Both views are breathtaking. There is no safety nets so you do want to watch your steps. It's the most amazing unexpected experience. The views from the cliff were incredible too.
