The Treasure of the Llanganates could be worth more than $37.5 billion, but explorers have spent centuries trying to find it without any luck. The question remains: where is this elusive treasure? The Treasure of the Llanganates is more than just Inca gold. Some believe there are jewels, platinum, silver, and emeralds hidden somewhere near the Llanganates mountains. At one time, historians believed there was gold and treasure hidden somewhere in Machu Picchu. While Spanish conquistadors pillaged Inca villages, some warriors escaped with valuable treasures in hand. In 1532, Spanish colonizer Francisco Pizarro captured Inca Emperor Atahualpa following the Battle of Cajamarca. The emperor was no match for Pizarro and his band of Conquistadors, but he almost outwitted the Spaniard. Atahualpa, fearing for his life, attempted to make a deal with Pizarro. The emperor told Pizarro he would fill a ransom room with gold if his life was spared. To sweeten the deal, Atahualpa offered up twice that amount in silver. Not all of the ransom arrived and the missing gold was never found. This fortune is hidden somewhere in South America. In 1860, explorers came closer to discovering the treasure than ever before. Captain Barth Blake and Lieutenant George Edwin Chapman began an expedition in search of the fortune. Some historians believe the pair found the long-lost treasure and Blake even described it in one of his letters. This is how the lost treasure of the Inca went missing and where it might be hidden today. Keep watching to find out more.
