This visual presentation explores how an adventure travel magazine editor with little actual outdoor experience attempts to recreate one of history's most famous expeditions, the lost Inca city of Machu Picchu.  Accompanied by a tough Australian guide and several Quechua-speaking mule tenders, he journeys through the mountains and jungles of Peru and makes some surprising, painful and occasionally supernatural discoveries of his own.
