Easter Island is a Polynesian island in the southeastern Pacific Ocean. Easter Island is famous for its 887 extant monumental statues, called moai, created by the early Rapa Nui people. Easter Island is one of the most remote inhabited islands in the world. The large stone statues, or moai, for which Easter Island is famous, were carved in the period 1100–1680 CE. A total of 887 monolithic stone statues have been inventoried on the island and in museum collections so far.
One of the highest-quality examples of Easter Island stone masonry is the rear wall of the ahu at Vinapu. Made without mortar by shaping hard basalt rocks of up to seven tons to match each other exactly, it has a superficial similarity to some Inca stone walls in South America.
Laguna San Rafael National Park
Laguna San Rafael National Park is a park located on the Pacific coast of southern Chile.
A fjord more than 16 km (10 mi) long is one of the park's principal attractions.
The park was designated a World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1979.
The park comprises some of the higher Andes mountains of Patagonia, such as the Monte San Valentín, Cerro Arenales, Cerro Hyades and Cerro Pared Norte.
This park contains a number of rivers. San Tadeo River is located in the Isthmus of Ofqui and flows into San Quintín Bay in the north part of the Gulf of Penas. Also there are various rivers bordering the park, such as the Baker River and the Exploradores River. Témpanos River (not really a river) connects San Rafael Lagoon with the Gulf Elefantes, the southern part of Moraleda Channel.
