Would it get past the trees and overgrowth though?

Supposedly a trip was supposed to be done last Summer where a helicopter was going to drop a team off on top of that square mountain but I can't find any news on it so I'm thinking it got postponed.

I love things like this--lost cities was one of the first things that peaked my interest as a kid, stemming from "The Temple of Doom" and things like reading about lost Egyptian tombs.

I looked at the coordinates on the Google Earth app, and from nearly every angle, it keeps the square shape--it's pretty amazing. Of course, like you say, if you're just hiking at ground level, you'd never recognize it.

This is a cool find--is there any update on the expedition? The story cites that it happened last year.

Interesting story. I just watched a show about this yesterday. Some French explorer and his team walked for 20 days to get there, but ran out of supplies and were far short of their goal. They also reported strange phenomenon in the jungles as they proceeded deeper in, like strange lights and sounds.

I don't think that they'll find anything, but its possible that the square mountain is a secret underground UFO base.

Yes it does. Pulling artifacts from the jungle using Lidar

Pic at the bottom of the article shows a good example of LiDar at work.

Not yet. I looked before I posted this so I could include an update but I couldn't find anything. I wonder if they flew in and never made it out... As for Indiana Jones, supposedly the Temple of Doom was inspired by this... Like you, I love things like this and have probably seen the 3 original Indiana Jones movies over a hundred times. This and time travel are my favorite things.

It's not out of the realm of possibility. It's a lost city, AND it's nearly impossible to reach on foot and it's covered in trees so you couldn't exactly land there from above. Say, what is the distance limit on a high quality drone?

Ha...I own the original trilogy of Indiana Jones and Back to the Future on Blu-ray...we should make a weekend out of it!



(I bought them on Blu-ray when that mattered...they would be digitally owned nowadays)

(I got the BttF trilogy at Walmart for $25...score!)

I'm not doubting it, I'm just wondering how it would do on mountainous terrain... This is from Idaho and I don't know how easy it would be to find an old ruin.

You have NO idea, lol... I had BttF DVR'd and every night, seriously every single night, I'd watch one of them before I went to sleep... Every. Single. Night. Then my box crashed and I had to find them all over again but could only find them on commercial channels, then that box crashed eventually too. Now I just have the discs. I do have the first and third IJ DVR'd but I haven't watched them nearly as much. On BttF, it's a toss-up between 1 and 2 for the one I like most, and I like 3 but not as much as the other 2. I guess if I HAD to choose a favorite, it'd be part 1, only because he goes back to the 50's and I'd love to do that to see my grandparents when they were all alive and in their 30's..

I lived in Peru for years, explored some places not even mentioned in the books. I believe there are more than one lost city and also other strange places that locals don't like to talk about. They saw too many times the white man coming only to steal their heritage and destroy their sacred places.

I'm pretty sure the US Army and others have found and collected gold finds,if there is any I'm doubting it is in a spot close to impossible to reach,who's better at pilidging doing it for hundreds of years

I think that BttF II is the worst one...that whole part with Biff being rich really just irritated me, so I didn't like watching it as much as the others. Plus, I'm a sucker for old-West period movies and shows, so that's probably why I like III better than II.

My wife thinks that I'm crazy--I already have the skill of easily remembering movie lines and quotes, but I can basically recite BttF I through the whole movie.

Anyhoo, good chat and good thread. I hope that we can eventually find out more about the results of the investigation(s) since that story.

I believe it. I wouldn't want to talk to people like us either if I was a villager and a stranger came through asking about the sacred things in my city. Those people take these things very serious and grow up, in some cases, believing that if anything in those sacred ruins are disturbed, death to the entire village or city could follow.

I must have missed that part... My 1 year old, who is ALWAYS happy unless he's sleepy or hungry, just happened to be sleepy while I rocked him through the first 20 to 25 minutes of the movie. I missed a lot of the conversation, etc. when they found the musical fest in the jungle the first time they arrived.

I used to like I and III the most, and II the least when I was younger. As time progressed, I started to notice (in this century) that there are a lot of things unheard of in 1989 that was thought of for their rendition of 2015. It was uncanny. My dad's favorite is Part III as well. I never liked Part II when Biff was rich either. It seems like we have a lot of similarities in taste. Which was your favorite IJ? Mine is The Last Crusade, mainly because of what he goes through to find the grail and then meets the 700 year old knight.

I'm going to keep my eye open on this lost city... What a sight it will be to behold if ever it's found!

I don't think an Army could be ordered to parachute in and start looking. Way too many dangers that they're not used to or trained for. Being trained to strategically out maneuver and/or eliminate the enemy isn't going to cut it. Archaeologists study maps and lands and stories and native languages (which have to be learned also) and many other things before they go on a journey such as this. Sometimes they might gather funds and facts/tales/theories for a decade or more before attempting such a feat, especially one as dangerous as this one poses in the most lethal rainforest on Earth. Not to mention all the wildlife you have to learn about, and shrubbery, and uncivilized cannibalistic tribes.

Very nice. I wonder if they can pick up cities covered in greenery, shrouded by jungle and trees or if it would look like part of the jungle, untraceable.


Yes, the LiDar data is processed to filter out the greenery and only pick up the surface detail.

Sounds more like a special forces mission, which always requires a clear objective; map out and excavate land, collect artifacts, investigate tombs or buildings. Especially given the cost of bringing camping gear, mini-excavators, clearing paths, collecting items, placing mapping grids and logging everything.
