At the easternmost limits of the Federated States of Micronesia lies the island of Kosrae. Its jungle-covered volcanic peaks rise majestically above the sparkling waters of the Pacific Ocean. Within the interior of the island state, some of the most captivating archeological ruins are found. At Lelu -- the home of Kosraean kings and high chiefs from 1400 to 1800 - coral walkways wind around the remains of the city's immense walls of hexagonal basalt logs. A network of canals once used for canoe travel is visible as well.
