Six investigators hunt for a city of gold and the explorers who vanished trying to find it

In the 1980s, three different explorers set out to find the rumoured cities of Akakor and Akahim in the Amazon jungle. And one by one, they disappeared. This series follows six international investigators on an epic real-life expedition into the Amazon jungle on the hunt for the two lost cities and what happened to the explorers who went missing. 

Their journey will begin in the dark jungles of Peru, east of the Andes, where Akakor is said to be located. Then they’ll move the expedition to northern Brazil – the rumoured site of Akahim, and where the explorers went missing. 

The deeper they delve into the jungle, the stranger and darker the mystery becomes. Finally their search for answers will take them face to face with the only man who may know the truth.
