The Band of Holes

In Peru’s Pisco Valley, there is a strange alignment of thousands of shallow pits. The pits are arranged in a narrow band about 14 to 20 meters wide, that run up a hill for about 1,500 meters. Their purpose or function is a mystery.

The feature is locally known as Monte Sierpe (serpent mountain) or Cerro Viruela (smallpox hill). It is also called by the name Band of Holes.
