Peru Travel Reveals Startling Connection Between Ancient Cultures

Darpan News Desk, 02 Sep, 2016
  • Peru Travel Reveals Startling Connection Between Ancient Cultures
Why is a non-functioning "doorway" carved from an entire hillside near Peru's Lake Titicaca nearly identical to a sculpted plateau in Anatolia, Turkey? Best-selling author and ancient mysteries researcher Freddy Silva says the answer involves secret mystery schools and near-death experiences.
 
Silva's research has also uncovered connections between Inca ceremonial sites and similar "tombs" in Egypt, China and Greece. These ground-breaking new findings will be revealed on a Silva-led investigative tour of megalithic sites of Peru organized by Sacred Earth Journeys.
 
The October 25 - November 2, 2016 program, "Hidden Faces of the Power Places of Peru" will concentrate on the lesser-known megalithic sites such as Ollantaytambo, here cyclopean stones too massive for modern cranes to lift were somehow transported across a river and up a near-vertical mountainside.
 
The group will also visit Machu Picchu and experience it from a different point of view. They'll whiz through the citadel at sunrise and climb 1,200 feet to the top of nearby Huayna Picchu for a birds-eye view of the surroundings, postponing exploration of the more famous Inca city until afternoon, when most of the tourists will have left.
 
Other seldom-visited sites include the cave art and stone carvings at Killarumliyoq, the mysterious doorway to nowhere at Naupa Iglesia, and the Uros Islands in Lake Titicaca, where villagers live on floating islands made from reeds.
 
"This is truly a tour that goes beyond the typical site visits," said Sacred Earth Journeys President, Helen Tomei. "It focuses on details few people get to see and hear, such as an underground chamber used for living resurrection rituals and a portal that some people believe leads into the Otherworld." 
 
Based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, Sacred Earth Journeys has been offering small group tours to the world's culturally rich destinations since 2003.
