The Best Trek to Ciudad Perdida Lost City

In the mountains of Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, declared Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1979, bordering the Caribbean Sea on the north coast of Colombia between 900 and 1,200 m on the upper reaches of the Buritaca river are hidden the ruins of an ancient indigenous town called “Teyuna” (Lost City).

The Lost City was built in 800 AD by the “Tayronas” who inhabited this area long before the arrival of the Spanish Conquistadors. Lost City has an architecture based on terraces made with an enigmatic disposition and a unique design never seen before in any ancient city in America.

The Trek to Ciudad Perdida gives us the opportunity to go on a terrific journey through the path of the “Tayronas” on an adventure through the thick tropical rainforest and full with invaluable biological wealth; in Lost City Trek Colombia we will know about the customs of the locals and indigenous communities (descendants of the “Tayronas”) who still inhabit the territory.
