dangers of the Lost City trek, Colombia

Ciudad Perdida (Lost City) in Colombia is one of our best hikes in South America.

It’s fantastic. But safety concerns have stopped many over the years from traveling to Colombia. And stopped others from doing the trek.

Bt82 joined a group of 11 hikers to do it in the Fall of 2009. No problema. Everything went great.

… Everything went great until the post-hike celebration. That evening was a disaster.

Tricked into a meal at an expensive restaurant. Porn movies and strippers at the bar. Prostitutes. One hiker caught with Marijuana. Police demanding a $1000 bribe.

  1. It’s Colombia, not Columbia. I don’t think you went to the dangerous Lost City trek @ Columbia University… I could be wrong though.
