The Pahi Rock Art Site



Rock Art Site Day 1 - 11.2 - After the session at Imbafi school we headed up to the village of Kolo to pick up our guide. Seppo negotiated the price for our two visits. Soon we were off down the road to Pahi.

There are no roads to these places just a series of footpaths - a long ride through deep ruts and twisting through the trees. We park the Land Rover as close as possible and walk up the hills.


The large overhanging stones protect the work from the weather and fences that have been constructed to preserve them from vandalism have been stolen for the wood and metal. It seems that steeling is a way of life in this land with so much need. A Rock Art site with whatever importance to the rest of the world has little meaning to locals living a subsistence existence where food, water and shelter are their main concerns.





We manage to visit two sites before sundown and arrange to come back in the morning to go to another.
