The ruins of the ancient city of Nan Madol are spread across about 100 artificial islets off the coast. Built over a long period, sometime between 1000 and 1500 CE (AD), it was an important religious and political center for the area. I didn't expect to see such fantastic structures here, so far away from anything else.
My guides combined Nan Madol with a trip to the Kepiroki waterfall (on the previous page).
