Day 1, Sacha Lodge

Where do you begin to describe a day in the Amazon Basin? We were woken at daybreak by the raucous chorale of the rainforest: the trill and caw of a thousand birds, the creek and chirp of the waking insect world, and the call-and-response of companion tribes of howler monkeys swaying through the high foliage. I've never woken to such a symphony.

By 6:30, after a light breakfast in the main lodge, we were hiking through dense tropical forest with our naturalist guide, Effie, and our local guide, Columbia. After a 45-minute trek, we arrived at Sacha's signature attraction, the Canopy Walk, a 960-foot long, 130-foot tall walkway suspended between three towers over the rainforest canopy.
