Ecuador: Tayos and the Lost City

The Cueva de Los Tayos Expedition 2019 was an adventure no one will forget! Our expedition had two main goals – to find more cave entrances and to solve the mystery of the rock formations we called the “walls” and “toes” upon their discovery in the last team’s expedition. Both missions were accomplished, but not everything was a walk in the woods…

A few years have passed since our last expedition to the Tayos Caves in Ecuador and we immediately noticed there had been a few changes in the Shuar community we like to stay with during the expeditions to the caves. One of the biggest changes in the village was the school that was built in part with the funds donated by members of the last Tayos expedition open to Ancient Origins Premium Members .
