Are there ancient treasures hidden inside?

The Cueva de los Tayos has been the cradle of several conspiracy theories that claim that beings from other worlds inhabited that place and had a metallic library inside.

We will live the best experience that a traveler can have

 

The mysteries of the Cueva de los Tayos have been compared to the Nazca lines. As there are unresolved issues, some researchers suggest conducting new scientific expeditions that can reveal the secrets of the Tayos.

After stepping on the Moon, the American astronaut Neil Armstrong entered the depths of the Earth.

The year was 1976, the location, the Andes mountain range in southeastern Ecuador.

Several dozen people participated in an extraordinary expedition to a fascinating geological formation called Cueva de los Tayos.

 

The Shuar Indians were the connoisseurs of this cave for decades, whose entrance has a vertical gap of about 75 meters.

 

Trips into the Cueva de los Tayos must be made with official permission, but primarily with the guidance of the Shuar indigenous people.

We have to bear in mind that it is NOT a tourist tour, it is an EXPEDITION, and the physical and mental demands that we will make on the trip to the Cueva de los Tayos is very demanding and difficult to access, to reach the entrance of the Cave (La Chimenea) we will have to travel an average of 6 hours of walking, mostly uphill with unbearable heat and humidity with an average temperature of 30° and a humidity of 85-90%, the return will take us more or less 2h30 hours of walking uphill down which is very dangerous since the road is very slippery, inside the cave we will have to overcome several obstacles and we will walk almost all day, it is for this reason that physical training is very important, but all this effort is worth it reach one of the most mysterious and incredible places on the planet. The walk becomes more demanding since the path is mostly full of mud or mud, one of the limitations that exists in the walk, is the amount of insects that we find in the jungle, remember that we are going to find ourselves at 848 meters above sea level

Date of departure to the Cueva de los Tayos is Friday, Abril 7 and the return from the Cave is Tuesday, Abril 11, 2023, keep this in mind, For the trip.

PHYSICAL TRAINING

It is essential that expedition members who participate in this great adventure train for at least 2 months before the trip, I recommend that they train with cardio or resistance exercises, the expedition is not about speed but resistance, it is recommended that they exercise by jogging or walking several Km a day if they can do it in a warm climate much better since they will be acclimatized for the trip.

The most important and risky part of the expedition is the descent and ascent of the Cave, the same one that is carried out with the RAPEL technique. For this reason, for those interested in this incredible trip, the cost includes technical training one month before the trip. in which we will practice anchoring, knots, descent and ascent on ropes, remember that the entrance to the cave is through a "chimney" of 64 meters of free fall with complete darkness (We as an extreme sports operator guarantee the safety of the equipment and the anchor but if it is necessary to have a previous instruction in rappelling)
