The Lost Village of Gamboa (Amazon Rainforest)


Prepare to be amazed by this stunning drone video of the northwestern Amazon Rainforest, compliments of contributor AlTheGreat.  This vast jungle is one of the principal geographical features of South America, comparable in importance to the Andes Mountains system.  It covers an enormous area of over 5.5 million square km (about 2.1 million square mi.), about 75% of the area of the Amazon River Basin.  The western and northwestern reaches of Amazonia (as it's sometimes called) lie in Peru and Colombia.
