Since I have a special attraction to indigenous cultures, during the next two months once again I will be following the Inca’s legacy in the Argentinean Andes. After holding meetings with renowned archaeologist in the western Argentinean city of Mendoza, I will go up to Mt. Penitentes (4350 m). Although this is not a high mountain, it is placed right opposite to Mt. Aconcagua (6969 m) and offers a unique view of the some magnificent Andes peaks.
Later on, I will travel north of Argentina and spend some time discovering new areas where three years ago we shoot ‘No Bike’s Land’. Pissis volcano (6893 m) and Incahuasi volcano (6671 m) hide so many wonders that three weeks filming on this area was not enough to discover them all. I am intrigued by the same natural wonders which caught the Inca’s attention more than five hundred years ago.
I will be using my Suunto X9i to track and save logs which will be later downloaded in Google earth. Solio solar panel will help me to keep the X9i charged all the time while 'm on the mountains.
Stay tuned for more pictures coming next May!
