Seeking the Source: The Mighty Amazon (Japanese Title : 神秘の大河 アマゾン 3つの不思議に迫る)

(c) NHK / group Andarin
Set off on an adventure to explore deep inside Peru, South America. Travel along the Amazon, the largest river in the world, and take a closer look at its relatively unknown mid-to upstream regions. The journey begins upstream from Iquitos at an elevation of only 100 meters and then continues for a distance of 3,000 kilometers up the slopes of Mount Mismi to an elevation of over 5,000 meters. This program shows several rare and miraculous moments never before seen on television and examines some of the unusual creatures left behind in the interior of the continent after the massive upheaval that created the Andes Mountains. What scenery awaits after finally arriving at the Amazon riverhead?
