Keep in mind

Difficulty of the walks

If you are not a lover of sports or hiking, it will be difficult for you to get to this place, since the walks are a minimum of 6 hours a day to reach the lost city.


Clothing and Accessories

In the day, in the middle of the walks, you will feel the heat, so wear fresh clothes and make it easy and quick to dry. For the night you can wear pants and long sleeves to protect you from the cold and mosquitoes.

Carry a light backpack with few things, so you will get less tired.

Take your cameras well charged battery. If you are going to photograph an indigenous person, first ask for his/her approval.


Repellent and sunscreen

It is important that during the day you protect your skin from the sun and also carry enough repellent to avoid mosquito bites. Also, take some medication (authorized by your doctor) for headaches, sore throat, stomach or other minor mishaps that may occur.
