When you hear Easter Island, you will no doubt think the giant statues which you often see in documentaries and photos.
Easter Island is located near Tahiti, about 2500 KM away. The time it was discovered in the 1700s, the island was uninhabited. Today, there is a small amount of inhabitants, about 4,800 who live there. Scientists and researchers or even some hikers often go there. If you want to visit this wonderful island, you can do it via sea or air. You can rent cars and bicycles for your journeys. It is an island which has a real beauty in terms of landscapes. There are caves where you can visit and have a nice time. Since, 1888, the Chilean government occupied the Easter Island.
The amazing part of the Easter Island is these giant statues which have been mentioned earlier. There are about 800 statues present, and they are known as “Moai“. These statues are still so mysterious, the main reason why Easter Island is among the well-known mysteries in the world. Even today, scientists are baffled to know how these statues were placed there. Some scholars believe the original inhabitants before did everything, but still, the theory has contradictions.
From this, different theories have come on the table. Conspiracy theorists and paranormal researchers strongly believe these statues had been placed and constructed with the help of extraterrestrial beings, precisely, an advanced civilization. It is impossible at that time, to dig a big hole, and to construct the statue. Where they got tools and knowledge to cut the rock at such good precision? This has amazed conspiracy theorists! What is surprising, these statues do not have only head, but also body in the underground. Now imagine, how huge are these statues, and they shows how difficult for only human beings to place them inside the ground! This will remind you the pyramids of Egypt…
Furthermore, the island did not know only wonderful periods but also catastrophic episodes in ancient eras. The number of inhabitants was so enormous that the island had to pass in a situation of massive deforestation. The inhabitants got issues for food because there were no animals there except some insects and lizards.
We still do not fully know who really placed these statues on this island and why! There must be a reason after all. Were these statues placed for rituals? Were they placed to illustrate the appearance of an extraterrestrial civilization? Were they placed to give us a sign? We do not know! The mystery of Easter Island will continue to fascinate us in the future it seems if no discoveries are made…
