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. But one by one, they disappeared. This series follows six international investigators and adventurers on an epic new expedition into the Amazon jungle to find out what happened to the missing explorers – and to hunt for the two lost cities.

The contemporary team begins its journey in the dark jungles of Peru, east of the Andes, where Akakor is said to be located. Then they 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 bring them face-to-face with the only man who may know the truth.
