Within this reserve, there are testimonies of ancient cultures such as the Petroglyphs of Pusharo, a set of engravings with no explanation of their origin and meaning. They were reported for the first time in 1921 and are located on the right bank of the river Shinkibenia; Other petroglyphs are in the Q’eros river, on the large “Xinkiori” rock.
