When you hear the word pyramid, you probably think about ancient Egyptian pyramids or Mesoamerican pyramids towering high over the jungle canopy. There are some 3,000 year old pyramids in Northern Sudan, and National Geographic Engineer Alan Turchik set out to show the whole world their beauty.
The pyramids even to this day are somewhat of a mystery. There are some theories but no one really knows how they were built, who built them, or why. Adding to the mystery is the mathematical precision and astronomical significance of the structures.
Thousands of years of erosion have taken their toll, but the structures still stand in remarkable condition. Check out the awesome aerial footage Turchik was able to capture.
