La Ciudad Perdida - The Lost City
Ciudad Perdida is the archaeological site of an ancient city in Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta.
Ciudad Perdida is the archaeological site of an ancient city in Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta. It is believed to have been founded circa 800 AD… some 650 years earlier than Machu Picchu.
The Ciudad Perdida trek is an epic adventure of ‘Indiana Jones’ style, requiring six days to achieve - three days in and three out (OR it can be done in a few hours by helicopter!). It is a somewhat unique trek where you will get to encounter native tribes on a regular basis (as they often use the same trails as the hikers). You will see the Kogies, as they are known, the legacy of the Tairona civilization. Much of the region consists of verdant cloud forests, attracting an array of rare and brilliant wildlife. Colombia actually has the highest diversity of bird life of any country on earth… with bright hummingbirds darting from every direction and flocks of emerald green Toucanettes... it was said to be simply amazing!Read more
