#10 of 10 in Things to do in Pohnpei
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.
