Easter Island Things to Do: 304 reviews and 693 photos
Orongo was where the birdman festival took place every year. There were many houses built here (in a unique Easter Island way!) - the entrances are tiny, you would have to crawl through them. In the photo here, it is possible to see some of the entrances to the houses where the competitors in the birdman festival used to live just before the race. The petroglyphs in the photo clearly depict some birdman motifs.
