On October 29, 2015 Australian born Londoner, Tarran Kent-Hume completed his journey down the longest and largest river in the world, the Amazon River. Beginning the expedition on June 20 2015 at the Mantaro River in Peru, the furthest source of the Amazon River, Tarran travelled 6,800 kilometres across South America to where the river enters the Atlantic Ocean.
The epic journey began in the Andes mountain region in Peru, hiking peaks and valleys 5,200 meters above sea level for the first 650 kilometres of the journey. The extreme temperatures of the high altitude region meant hot days tipping the mercury to over 44 degrees Celsius, before plummeting at night to negative -4 degrees Celsius.
