  • Hey, I'm not wrong. I'm just not completely right.

I don't think it was robbers or any kind of water ditch. This thing is like 7000 feet (2000 meters) long and the width does not change much.

If you type "Band of Holes, Pisco Province, Ica Region, Peru" into Google Maps, it takes you right there.

It does be intriguing as to what it might be, I for one would also exclude grave robbing or water. To be honest I find the storage theory a but flaky as well.

I've thought about these things and I can't even come up with one good speculation on their existence.

but I like mysteries too, so that's good!

Don't know, but these holes don't look that impressive from ground level, and look much like the result of the work of a large group of huaqueros.

The difference from other illegal digs in Peru is that here it seems a large group of people was systematically searching for something they expected to be there.

It could have happened as long ago as the 19th century, so not one local may remember who made those digs/holes.

Abe, I would accept your theory that these are just holes dug recently by people looking for artifacts to sell but when you look at the holes from google they just seem too damn regularly spaced.  Its possible that the graverobbers have a leader whos very meticulous about the search; the holes also go (what appears to be) the entire length of the path to the eroded face of that hill or moutain top.  I would suggest investigating the area to the right of the holes up there as there appears to be something else going on in that area.  Very odd.

Is there a relation with what looks like the remnants of an abandoned settlement nearby?

Few miles east from the band, a satellite photo shows structures that look like the remnants of an ancient settlement (these formations do not look natural and there is nothing similar in the entire area):

I did, and what I found seems to suggest the holes were some sort of agricultural thing (holes for trees as someone suggested). The holes start in what appears to be an agricultural area:

Here's a new thought.  I'll take it for granted that everyone has used a a computer (but the ipad is much better) to play with google maps.  When zooming in on any town its very easy to find the airport.  They're all layed out in triangles and crosses and very easy to spot from the skies.  Check out the desert in Arizona and Nevada.  Quite a few airports dot the surrounding region, such as area 51.

There are so many explanations to what the lines in Peru are and what they actually were.  There is no doubt that they are set up in triangles and wide stripped geometrical formations, resembling very much airports when zooming in from afar.  Of course scientists say there is no possible way that modern day airplanes landed on them, because of the rock, sand, oxide ...not hard or solid enough.  However the explanation is simple they were landing strips alrgight but for great flying feathered serpeants from the ancient days told in many legends througout the surrounding regions.   To the East where these holes are located are merely hatching sites for the eggs that were buried by those creatures.  BOOM, didn't see that idea coming now did you.  :yes:

I cant find any orthodox explanation about these holes. Anybody have a link? all my googling have only turned out some conspiracy stuff and aliens. Anybody know of a place where I can read about it seriously?

Finally got my black belt....

My take on the pot holes witch doesent include Aliens or super high advanced civilitations?

Well once upon a time there was a kingdom, ruled by a wise king, but sadly the kingdom had many enemies. The king in the effort to protect his kingdom by rival tribes, he planted on a straight line xxxx number of trees. So when a hostile army passed by, all they could see was a tight forest, and they moved on to other places. The king was nick named the tree king, and they all lived happy and prosper till the end of their days.

So what do you people say? does it sound plausible?

Finally got my black belt....
