Wow, lovely landscape, how old are these carvings? (I naively thought they were fossils lol) Best wishes, Fai (L2)

a wonderful image and beautiful lighting - like.

Very interesting place, I also wonder whether it is man-made or there were stoned skeletons of fossils.

Best wishes, Leo

Thank you, Abas, Fai, Leo and Qian! There are hundreds of carvings at this site and the type that is shown on the photo is believed to be boats with multiple rows of oars. The age or the purpose of the carvings is not known. From what I have read it seems unlikely that they are more than 400-500 years old.
