This solitary Moai is a real hidden gem, there are no indications to find it, nor it's possible to spot it from far unless you really pay attention.

THIS SITE is in the middle of mountains. Very quiet, not many tourist come here. it's good to enjoy it in the morning since the light is better to take photos. it's few place that with standing moai without tourists. so come here and enjoy the quiet moment. very close to village.
Insignificant to many of the Moai because it is worn away, in fact I didn't take a picture here, no need to stay long either - can be seen from the road.
