Exploring Easter Island – Day 5 (Part 1)

After ascending the opposite side of the crater I was rewarded with an exhilarating view of the lake, as well as the valley behind me. I took my time to take it all in, with sunshine filtering through the clouds from time to time.

After ascending the opposite side of the crater I was rewarded with an exhilarating view of the lake, as well as the valley behind me. I took my time to take it all in, with sunshine filtering through the clouds from time to time.

I woke up at about 3am and something was amiss. It was quiet outside. The stormy weather had died down. This could just be a lull I thought, but what if it holds? I reset my alarm and went back to sleep, holding thumbs.

I was up early. It was still dark, but everything seemed calm outside. The owner of the B&B had a full-time tenant who worked at Rano Rarako and I was hoping to get a lift with him, with the aim to hike from there right around the north coast.

Considering the forecast I knew it was a bit ambitious, but at the very least I would get to see the inside of the crater behind the quarry at Rano Raraku, which I didn’t see the day before.
