Ecuador: Tayos and the Lost City

Friday, September 6, 2019 to Monday, September 16, 2019
73 days remaining to the event

UPDATE: 6 spaces left

Ancient Origins returns once again to go deeper into our exploration of the Tayos caves in Ecuador on our 3rd expedition for Premium Members. While the search for hidden cave entrances continues, our previous Tayos expedition also demonstrated that the secrets of the area may go beyond the caves and tales of Father Crespi and his mysterious treasures!

Structures in the Jungle

Last time we identified some formations that appeared to be man-made. If this is true, then it may be connected to an ancient mythical civilization that created the famous Father Crespi tablets. Local legends tell of a lost civilization related to the caves and some archaeological evidence and unexplained phenomenon have been found in the area suggesting that the caves were inhabited before the Shuar people settled in the region.

Our goal therefore expands from looking for more cave entrances – which will begin with investigating an unexplored cave we found last time - to also exploring if the formations we found are indeed manmade, which could mean an entrance to a lost jungle city.
