Since Poike is located at one end, trekking to this volcano will offer panoramic views where you can see virtually the entire island, to the Rano Kanu volcano at the other end.
In addition to being able to appreciate the nature that surrounds us, we can explore interesting and unique archaeological sites. The main sites we can see are:
Vai a Heva, which is a face in the rock that works like a container of water. The legend tells that it was carved by a vivid Heva and that when it rains, the waterfalls from the eyes to the mouth, representing her eternal pain for the loss of her husband.
Trachyte moais: These moais can be found at the back of the Poike volcano, unique in their grey colour and of greater hardness, thanks to which details of these statues that otherwise would have deteriorated long ago have been preserved.
Also in a spectacular place next to the cliffs is the hidden cave Ana o Keke, often called Cave of the Virgin. According to legend, girls were imprisoned here, to get clearer skin. We can see images carved on the walls of the cave, which represent the mysterious and indecipherable ancient language of rongo-rongo writing. Of course, to enter, visitors should not be afraid of heights.
In addition to all these places to explore, we will get stunning views of the entire island to the other end. It will be an incredible walk that you will remember forever!
