Ahu Akahanga, Hanga Roa

4.3
#5 of 16 in Historic Sites in Easter Island
Visit the reputed burial ground of Hotu Mata, legendary king of Easter Island, at Ahu Akahanga. Lying face-up on the ceremonial platform and surrounded by a circle of rocks, the solemn moai monument marking the king's grave has been weathered by centuries of exposure to the elements. Nevertheless, the monolith creates an atmosphere of solemn grandeur befitting royalty. Look for a small mound nearby, where it appears that several moai were toppled like dominoes. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Hanga Roa trip simple and quick.

  • Ancient ruins and houses, you can visualize how the Rapa Nui lived. See the tumbled Moai, best to see with a guide to explain the history.  more »
  • Although the petroglyphs are eroded you can still see the impressions. Very interesting place as the first king of Rapa Nui is buried here.  more »

  • This site has fallen Moai lying around. It requires 30 minutes at least to walk to see and return. Not breath-taking and only very few tourists stopping by.
