  • You may wonder why the site was chosen by the natives and I don't have any answer for you. In the middle of nowhere even in Volcanoes NP. Granted perhaps many hundreds or thousands of years ago...  more »

  • The petroglyphs are amazing, quite a diversity here compared to some of the other large fields on the island. Fascinating to think about what the person was thinking that used stone to etch in stone. Obviously some of the etchings are clear and known but certainly quite a few are known only to the author.
  • Great spot with some amazing history. It’s a little bit of a walk under the sun, so be prepared for that. Follow the path made by the stacked up rocks. The place has its cultural and archeological value. I almost feel that the park should take a little bit more care of this site.
