Approved: Yes

Marcahuasi is a plateau in the Andes Mountains, located east of Lima, on the mountain range that rises to the right bank of the RĂ­mac River. This mountain range dominates the landscape at 4,000 m above sea level and the place is known for curious figures and shapes of human faces and animals visible in granite rock. Figures that should not be there at all. An Egyptian Pharaoh with headdress and beard looks almost identical to the death mask of King Tut. A gigantic face called “The African Queen” looks similar to The Great Sphinx of Egypt. The delicate Features of an Egyptian Maiden decorate the canyon walls. Scientists are still debating if the rockarts in Marcahuasi are natural formations or if they have been shaped and created by a very ancient culture that once lived in this area. Also, there are many UFO-Sightings reported from the Marcahuasi area.
