This is an extinct volcano which last erupted some 1,5 million years ago. It has one of the largest stretches of natural water sitting in the bottom.

Well worth a visit. You can walk round it and get photos of the Pacific behind you and in front of you.
There are floating reed islands at the bottom as well as grapes, avocado trees and other plants on the sides. The locals are allowed down the slopes to gather fruits or to swim in the caldera.
Our Rapa Nui guide told us his great grandfather planted the vines on the slopes.

Don't drive up there, take a hike from Hanga Roa, it's not that long and the views are amazing! Once you get to the crster be sure to walk all the way to the left where it breaks, the view is breathtaking. My favorite place on the island along Tongariki!

climbed the crater up from the other side, took us about 2 hours to reach the crater rim itself, then walked around the entire crater. Phantastic. Absolute worth visiting.

If you don´t want to climb it all up, drive up and start walking around the crater.

Our tour took us to Rano Kau shortly after checking into our hotel, and it proved to be a superb introduction to the beauty of the island. It is one of the three volcanoes that formed the island, and you quickly got the feeling that you were somewhere far away from the rest of the world.
