Hungo Pavi is the first stop on the Chaco loop road. It is an unexcavated great house located about 1.8 miles (2.9 km.) southeast of Pueblo Bonito at the mouth of Mockingbird Canyon. According to the Chaco Research Archives, the site contains approximately 140 rooms. The north roomblock includes three rows of rooms and stood at least three-stories tall along the rear wall, dropping to a single story along the plaza. The structure is D-shaped with a single row of rooms enclosing the plaza. Two kivas have been identified; a central, elevated kiva within the north roomblock and a great kiva in the plaza. It was constructed during the late 10th to early 11th centuries, with additions in the middle of the 11th century.
