Lost City Trek – 6 DAYS
COL-80a-LT / 6 day trip / Grade: T2
La Ciudad Perdida of the Tayronas, known in English as The Lost City, is one of the best-restored and preserved archeological sites in the country. It is located in the Buritaca valley in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, the highest costal range in the world. There are only two ways to visit the citadel; one is trekking or the other a helicopter’s flight. The trek implies not only a challenge, but also an additional experience that enriches the trip. The trek to the Lost City is an adventure in itself with the its beautiful and varied landscapes, the fauna and flora, the hike in the tropical rain forest, the hot and high humidity conditions and, on top of all that, the experience of getting an insight into the traditional way of living of the indigenous groups of the Sierra.
