Mysterious World of the Inca
South America in the past used to be the home to many Indian cultures, but one of them was the greatest and the most powerful – the Inca Empire. This has spanned from the south border of today’s Colombia up to the Maule River in central Chile and led from the sandy coast of the Pacific Ocean over the grand Andes mountains all the way to the very edge of the Amazon jungle. Although the legacy of the Incas attracts scientists from around the world to this day, much of their life style is veiled with mystery. Today, researchers rely only on archeological findings and reports of the first chroniclers. One of them was also Felipe Guamán Poma de Ayala, whose images from the famous "First chronicles and good governing" are the motives of this film. You’ll visit not only the archeological localities – Machu Picchu, Sacsayhuamán and Ollantaytambo, but even the less familiar places inhabited by the Incas in Peru and the neighboring Ecuador. High in the Peruvian Andes you will take part in the traditional holiday, as well as welcoming the New Year in Recay in Bolivia. The adventurous journey to get to know the mysterious life of the Incas will come to an end on the eastern side of the Andes, at the very edge of the Amazon jungle, in the lost city of Espiritu Pampa.
