Peruvian native Renzo Zeppilli leads us into the very heart of South America’s Andes mountain range, which transects the country in a tall, jagged spine from Colombia to Cape Horn. Via fantastic photographs, personal stories and ancient legends, Renzo transports us into the high-altitude region around Cusco, a unique nexus of nature and culture where the Inca civilization bloomed and its remnants are still on display. These ancient stone citadels and temples are surrounded by the rugged topography of the Andean heights, rising in sheer, verdant slopes to the sky. These natural environs support a varied community of very particular flora and fauna including endemic hummingbirds, strange orchids and highland camelids. Join Renzo on an odyssey into the high-altitude wonders of Peru, for a whole different breath of fresh mountain air.
