Paratoari (also known as the Pyramids of Paratoari, Pyramids of Pantiacolla or “The Dots”) is a site composed of pyramid-shaped natural formations in the Manu area of dense tropical rainforest in southeast Peru. It was first identified via NASA satellite photograph number C-S11-32W071-03, released in 1976.
They subsequently garnered greater attention among South America aficionados through a series of three articles which questioned from afar what “The Dots” might truly represent (and settled upon a geological explanation being the most plausible) in 1977 – 1979 issues of the “South American Explorer” journal, written under the name of “Ursula Thiermann” by Don Montague, president of the South American Explorers Club.
