The Andean Research Expeditions
Return Expedition to Inca Palcay scheduled for
May 5th, 2019
We are back - report to follow soon. Next Expedition
will be in September - stay tuned
As a continuation of the ongoing study of Inca period sites that may be associated with Machu Picchu, we are returning to the remote, deep canyon site, Palcay which we studied and surveyed in 2006 and 2017
Our expedition in April last year located a probable ceremonial site that was
unknown and undocumented. Our goal is to identify what this site may have been and
how it may fit with distant Machu Picchu.
We will travel with the usual amenities; good meals prepared by our camp chef, Pancho, ample happy hour supplies, dining tent and comfortable camp set up.
We will be able to ride our longtime wrangler's excellent saddle horses, bringing all gear along with pack mules. Of course some steep hiking will be needed to approach the site locations or it would not be an expedition.
PLEASE CONTACT GARY ZIEGLER FOR DETAILS.
