As a crater itself, the crater at Rano Raraku is nowhere near as impressive as Rano Kau. However the main reason to visit Rano Raraku is that it is where all of the moai where carved, and there are still many of the old stone heads there in many stages of completeness. Many people just go and see the outside of the crater wall where many moai can be found, which is a shame as there are many more stone heads inside the crater itself. The picture here shows two stone heads lying on the ground with the crater lake in the background.
Address: Ranu Raraku (the moai quarry)
