Description

Discover an ancient gateway to the Mayan underworld at Actun Tunichil Muknal cave, hidden in the depths of the jungle in Belize, a mysterious underwater monument sunken off the Ryukyu Islands in Japan or a prehistoric village covered for centuries by a huge sand dune at Skara Brae in the Orkney Islands. 
 
Bringing together evocative text and stunning illustrations this beautiful book instantly transports you to twenty-five of the world’s most secret destinations. From remote locations that visitors must trek and wade just to catch a glimpse of, to forgotten cities only recently revealed, and places purposefully hidden away as sanctuaries from persecution, each destination has a very human story at its heart and behind its secrecy.
 
Perfect for those who want to get away from it all, this book takes you closer to these hidden locations than ever before.
