Tepui — Descent into the House of Gods

This is an extreme expedition into an unknown, lightless world, populated by prehistoric creatures with colonies of microorganisms dating back millions of years when life on Earth was in its infancy. It’s a journey back in time into an unexplored labyrinth of purple lakes, waterfalls, bizarre rock formations and ancient cave paintings, hidden beneath craggy mesas in the remote South American wilderness. It’s brand-new to science with the potential of redefining the evolution of life, even the chances of life on other planets.

The Italian geologist Francesco Sauro and his team will assess, map and model this underworld for the very first time and examine long-lost artwork by ancient tribes. This is a rare story of discovery in the modern era: tricky, dangerous, gripping and surprising with far-reaching implications for modern science.
