Rapa Nui National Park, a World Heritage Site in Chile

INPHEDIA.ID - In Chile there is a unique historical tourist destination and keeps a mystery. Rapa Nui National Park is a national park and a UNESCO World Heritage Site located on Easter Island, Chile, one of the countries in South America, precisely in the southeastern part of South America, with its capital in Santiago.

This island full of stone sculptures is called Easter Island because when it was discovered by Europeans, an explorer from the Netherlands, on Easter Day in 1722. The island which was taken over by Chile in 1888 is located in the southeast Pacific Ocean, at the southeast end of the Triangle Polynesia.

The fame and status of the World Heritage established on March 22, 1996 arose from the existence of 887 extant stone sculptures known as "Moai", whose creation was attributed to the early Rapa Nui people who inhabited the island around 900 years ago.

The latest research says, the Rapa Nui people (called Easter Island in the local language) place the statues near one of the most important natural resources for humans, namely fresh water. Archeologists study the location of the statue or Moai and the platform on which the statues are known are known as Ahu.

For tourists who want to visit this remote island full of sculptural works, there are regular flights available from Santiago and Tahiti with a flight time of about five hours. (PSW.IND / ENG / *)
