What is it?
A 10-day trip that delivers on its name, Trek to Colombia’s Lost City digs into the history, mystery and adventure of Ciudad Perdida, with a healthy dose of relaxation thrown in, from treks through thick vegetation en route to The Lost City to relaxing afternoons spent unwinding riverside in the jungle. The trip includes unforgettable encounters with indigenous shamans, delectable fresh fruit-filled snacks and meals, spectacular eco-hab lodge stays, and extraordinary ocean views.
Ciudad Perdida (The Lost City) was (discovered) in 1972, when a group of local treasure looters found a series of stone steps rising up the mountainside and followed them to an abandoned city which they named (Green Hell) or (Wide Set). When gold figurines and ceramic urns from this city began to appear in the local black market, archaeologists headed by the director of the Instituto Colombiano de Antropologia reached the site in 1976 and completed reconstruction between 1976-1982
