Easter Island is a special territory of Chile in the middle part of the South Pacific. The main attraction of this island is Ahu Tongariki - huge stone statues in the human form of Moai, facing west. Statues were torn down by the tsunami in the 1960s. In the 1990s, a mixed team of archaeologists and engineers, with the help of a Japanese crane company, erected and installed 15 moai in their place. This island attracts visitors with its statues and friendly Rapa Nui people and their tradition.
