Situated in a valley known for its mystic properties, this ancient city sits on terraced cliffs like steps leading to the heavens. In its time it was a massive project consisting of huge monoliths carried up the mountains and stones cut at sharp angles fitting into each other like a puzzle. There are debates among archeologists as to how the monoliths could have been carried so high and how the stones could have been carved with only the stone or bronze tools of that time which seems to be impossible, adding to the mystery. Also, work was stopped on the project all at once under unknown conditions.

The town has expanded around the ruins with tourist shops and hotels. The air is thin here and many foreigners suffer mild signs of altitude sickness.

Located in a country of many climates from seashore to high mountains to tropical rainforest with flesh-eating fish, it is 50km from a much more famous ruin in the area which was voted one of the 'new seven wonders of the world'.


Do you know where I am?
