Nestled deep in the jungle of the Sierra Nevada mountain range lies an ancient city built in approximately 800 AD and uncovered in 1972 by the Western world. This ¨Lost City¨ trek takes 4 to 5 days of intense hiking up and down steep terrain and across rivers, with plenty of natural pools and waterfalls along the way. The city itself is immense and layered with history, and you will cross paths with indigenous tribes that adhere to their ancient culture and protect their way of life. If you are in northern Colombia do not miss this opportunity.
This trek can only be accomplished through a licensed tour group that leaves from Santa Marta. The hike is hot, humid and strenuous so wear synthetic clothes and bring plastic bags to separate your wet clothes.
Location:Sierra Nevada, Colombia
