What Is The Band Of Holes?

The country of Peru has many unexplained formations. It seems to be a hot spot for bizarre phenomena, including the Nazca Lines and the pictures of birds and animals cut into the landscape that can only be seen from above them.

Another Peruvian mystery is the Band of Holes located near the Pisco Valley on a plain known as Cajamarquilla.


The Band of Holes is a thick line of shallow holes that have been dug or crushed into the hard rock mountain terrain. The band stretches for over a mile. From above the holes look as.though they might have been created by a huge uni-ped land rover. However, if this had been the case, where did such a machine come from since archeologists have determined that the holes are thousands of years old. One would also think that after all that time, the wind, and water would have filled them in by now, but they seem relatively unaffected by the elements.

Another strange thing about these holes is that no artifacts have ever been found around or in them. So, if they were dug by hand for some reason, why? They obviously weren’t made for storage or as graves, as some evidence of these uses would have been found. Is it possible that these holes were made by an alien probe that was designed to take samples of the surface it landed on? That seems to be the most likely conclusion to some scientists. Some of the holes vary in depth to six to seven feet deep, and others are simply shallow indents into the surface. At the most northern end of the band the earth is darker than other areas along its length, almost as if there had been a large explosion in that area that singed the earth. This is the only area of the world where these holes have been found.

The holes have been measured, and studied for years after they had first been discovered by flying over them, but no one to date has arrived at a concrete explanation for their existence.
