Lost City trek, Colombia

Things have really improved at Colombia’s most legendary hike.

Check this detailed 5-day trip report.

The Tayrona people built La Ciudad Perdida over 1000 years ago. They called it Teyuna. The Spanish invasion pushed the natives high into the Sierra Nevada until they were so dispersed that their numbers dwindled and their cities were abandoned. The jungle reclaimed the Lost City…until tombraiders found gold there.

That’s on La Ciudad Perdida, the best starting point for organizing a trek.

Guides are still mandatory. It’s remote and still slightly dangerous territory, close to the border with Venezuela.
