Rano Kau, Easter Island, Valparaiso Region, Chile
Rano Kau volcanoSave a good half-day for a hike up the side of Rano Kai volcano and the exploration of the Orongo village on the rim. It takes only an hour to go from the street to the top, if you move fast, but once there, you'll find more paths to walk for better and better views. Mind the high winds, and be sure it's sunny enough so photos of the crater's lake turn out vibrant. Sure, others will drive up here, but that's not all the way to the top (and it's just lazy).
