Monkeys 9 days fed tourist, lost in the jugles of the Amazon
One day, a group of tourists, including a guy, went to the rainforest. Upon returning to the camp, Acuna was clearly agitated and refused to join the Pachamama ceremony, during which travelers thank Mother Nature for allowing them to enter the forest.
After the ceremony, the guide went in search of a guy, but he was not anywhere. The group searched for Akun for hours, but he disappeared without a trace.
Max Adventures owner Feyzar Nava is convinced that this happened because the guy did not participate in the ceremony, thereby offending mother nature.According to her, those who show disrespect for Pachamama can be driven mad by Duende - an evil spirit that hides victims in other dimensions.
“For me and the Rangers, this is our culture,” said park director Marcos Ukviano in an interview with National Geographic. - We believe that Duende is real. And we think that maybe he took Maykol. ”
The park workers spent several days searching for Akuna, but all their efforts were unsuccessful. Six days after his disappearance, the only result was a dirty sock found on the ground in the forest.
After that, the camp invited shamans to use ancient rituals, a large wooden cross, cigarettes, beer cans, coca leaves, bottles of wine, candles, confetti, and even a dirty sock to find Akun. In total, several rituals were performed - in the hope of trying to get in touch with the soul of a guy who, they believed, was stuck in another dimension.
Nine days after the disappearance, the park workers heard Acuna’s shout from the riverbank a mile from the camp.
He was bitten by Acuna’s mosquitoes and said that he survived only thanks to a pack of monkeys. According to him, they threw fruits at him and led him to shelter and water every day.
Akuna says that the night before he was discovered on the bank of the river, he prayed for salvation.In this case, the guy does not believe in the shamans or the culture of the Bolivian jungle - he believes that God himself has saved him.
