The indigenous people of Bolivia?s highlands have legends of a lost underwater city called Wanaku. It existed on a mysterious island in Lake Titicaca, the world?s highest lake, and had a hidden entrance to underground passageways that had been built by the Incas. Now those legends may be coming true.
Explorers have made 250 dives in the area and discovered a 2,300-foot-long road, now under water. At the end of the road they found the remains of a 660-foot-wide stone temple that is 65 to 100 feet below the surface of the water. They also discovered a terrace, a 2,600-foot-long wall, a stone anchor, vases and bones from animals that might have been sacrificed. The ruins date from 1,000 to 1,500 years ago.
