Destination Truth heads into the rugged mountains of Peru to investigate claims that the Incan ruins there are haunted. Shrouded in the Andes mountains, the Incan city disappeared half a millennia ago. The residents reportedly buried their gold in the tunnels underneath the city and committed suicide before the Spanish conquistadors could invade. Today, local farmers claim that their animals react violently when passing by the ruins. Josh and his team are the first to visit the region with a camera crew and stay overnight. Midway up the trail, the team’s horses start to panic inexplicably; the locals will go no further and take their animals back down with them, leaving Josh and company to continue on their own. The investigation yields such compelling audio and visual evidence that Josh calls on expert analysts Steve Gonsalves and Dave Tango from Ghost Hunters to determine whether the Lost City is still inhabited with spirits.

The team then travels to Alaska, where locals claim a giant winged bird is terrorizing their community. A nocturnal creature said to be part bird, part reptile, the “Thunderbird,” has recently been sighted soaring over the Alaskan landscape by local pilots. Josh and crew set out for a sub-zero exploration of the Arctic terrain. Haunted Lost City/Thunderbird airs Wednesday, October 21st @ 10 p.m. EST.
