Journey to the remote cliff face of Peru's Nevado Mismi, the fabled source of the mighty Amazon River. As hard as it is to fathom, the origins of one of the world's greatest rivers is actually found far from the Brazilian rain forest, in the highlands of the Peruvian Andes. It is here, where a small trickle of ice cold water coming from a crack in the rocks of Colca Canyon, that the river is born. Marked only by a small wooden cross, it is a place of austere beauty amongst mountains that few have visited.
