Portals of Ancient Peru & Bolivia Tour
Join best-selling author Freddy Silva, and stars of 'Ancient Aliens' (History Channel) Brien Foerster & Hugh Newman on a unique expedition to the power places and sacred sites of the Andes. There are places on Earth that literally take your breath away. The megalithic culture of Peru and Bolivia is such a place. Imagine cutting blocks of stone so large that few modern cranes can lift them, then hauling them up near-vertical mountainsides and 40 miles across high altitude terrain, then fitting them with lathe-like precision so that 10,000 years later the fruits of this labour are still mostly intact. You get the idea. Sacred sites such as Tiwanaku and Saqsayhuaman defy description because they defy human scale. The temple of Kalasaya alone is accurately dated to 15,000 BC, a time when vast sheets of ice were collapsing across the Earth, bringing with it unparalleled changes to the climate. It was under such conditions that an advanced culture thrived in South America, the stuff of legends. The Inca faithfully maintained their memory so that one day we could travel to these sites and marvel at an civilization whose work modern science still has trouble explaining. To visit such remote places is to connect with a culture that even the Inca considered beyond time when they found these temple cities. Their myths speak of travelling gods moving stones through the air to the command of sound, and erecting "mansions of the gods" literally overnight. What did they know? What did they see? You can find out by joining us on a quest into the unbelievable. Along with site visits we shall attend museums and see unusual artifacts and elongated skulls; we'll tap into subtle energies, practice some dowsing, even meditate wherever the spirit moves us.
