On this 5-day adventure we experience trekking in the heart of Colombia to reach our goal ‘The Lost City’. Ciudad Perdida or Teyuna is located at the base of Pico Bolívar and Pico Colón within the national park and is surrounded by exuberant nature, a perfect habitat for various bird species. Ciudad Perdida was the most important urban centre of the ancient Tayrona culture. The city, a true feat of engineering, was built on a system of terraces connected by stone paths and supported by a canal circuit. At the time, the population was of between 1,400 and 3,000 who lived in circular stone houses with thatched roofs on about 250 terraces. Today’s inhabitants, such as the Kogui, Arhuaca and Wiwa, are descendants of the Tayrona and continue to preserve their traditions. This is something to tick off your bucket list!
