Machete Landing (or Machete Junction) was a small, remote river outpost that lay along the Amazon River in South America.

History[edit | edit source]

Machete Landing was originally established by missionaries who sought to bring Christianity to the local native South American people. However, they were ill-prepared for the harsh jungle environment and many lost their lives. The site was abandoned and eventually taken over by a criminal element.

Peruvian guides Barranca and Satipo were based out of Machete Landing around 1936. That year, Indiana Jones hired the two men as the pair possessed part of a map vital to finding the Temple of the Chachapoyan Warriors within which sat the fertility idol.
