Beautiful, previously hidden cave in the Amazonian mountains.

When I was a child, I dreamed of exploring places like these, of being the first human to find them and then ensuring they remained protected and untouched. I wanted to buy the entirety of the Amazon rainforests and preserve them! I was an idealistic innocent child and believed that all animals and wildlife were at risk of destruction by the bizarrely short-sighted, violent behaviour of humans. I was right. It’s a shame no one did that as rainforests worldwide are being decimated. I hope this place remains safe from tourism and destruction.
