Wife and I took the guided tour of petroglyphs. Chris puts a lot into explaining the significance and interpretation of the carvings and adds his own personal stories to make the experience truly enchanting. Highly recommended if you are in the area.

My friend & I took the tour with Clyde, he insisted that my left leg prothesis would not deter me. I enjoyed the climb up the mountain & all the ancient petroglyphs. I couldn't have climbed the mountain without Clyde's assistance. Thank you!

From Bella Coola follow the road eastward for 2.5km and drive S on K road. Walk along the Thorsen Creek for around 500m and you will find many strange faces engraved in the rocks.

I booked the tour with Coppersun Tours; the petroglyphs were outstanding and the stories the guide told about the origin and history of the Nuxalt people were touching. A very magic moment, highly recommend

The owner opened up his shop up for me as I had come during the off season. Was a bit disappointed that they are getting out of hand made moccasins. So hope the Elders get the younger ones learning this tradition. Drive the hill to...More

Before ariving in Bella Coola, I had never heard of what I now know to be a national treasure. This site contains rock carvings that are between 3000 and 10,000 years old. There appears to be very little recognition of (or infrastructure protecting) the site....More

We viewed the carvings, some of which have been dated up to 3000 years old, with a young Nuxalk man, who added so much to our experience with his stories of growing up and playing in this magnificent setting. The walk to the carvings was...More
