Historic Site · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
Visit an ancient civilization by touring Pohnpaid Petroglyphs, probably nearly a thousand years old. This collection of petroglyphs chipped into the basalt rocks cover an area the size of a tennis court. The few dozen images depict mostly daggers, human feet, faces, and fish. The site features no information displays and the locals often demand a payment for crossing their land. For the sake of convenience, look for a local guide at the nearby village.
