uphoria, indescribable adventure was filmed at Manu National Park, deep in the Amazon Rainforest, an unspoiled expanse of boiling jungle and breath-taking cloud forests running from the Andes mountains to the Madre de Dios River. Its lowlands are only accessible by boat and its impenetrable nature has been both reasons why so many are attracted to its dark undergrowth and the reason it has remained so well preserved. Sondre Amdahl and Tommy Chen began their journey above the clouds looking down a massive valley along which a single-track road winds through a sea of green. The clou ds boil and roll across the canopy below and the air around you is thin enough to double the effort required to move. Descending to UNESCO world heritage site below and making their way through 230km of the sweltering jungle, choked with mud and humidity, broken by river crossing after crossing.
