Ciudad Perdida traveled to a lost city, one of the most awaited adventures of my journey to South America. It’s like more raw Machu Picchu. It’s a four-day walk to archeological sites in the woods, just like Machu Picchu, but with fewer restrictions and fewer people. The Machu Picchu Inca trails up to 500 people a day, as well as gatekeepers and travelers. Groups of 3-4 people, 10 people and one person per day.
Perspective of ciudad perdida
Quite a bit of charm, you have to carry your own backpack. However, occasional hammocks and beds are available at each campsite, so the tent is not a problem. Every camp has a cold shower and sink for you to wash in. Your group will have a chef who travels with you, cooks many meals and even cuts and serves occasional snacks. The advice here is going to be easy and fun. But be prepared to find advice in speaking English is rare. You can hire translators for extra fees, or you can even wing and practice your Spanish guide!
The path goes into the lost city trek.
Walking through the jungle is not bad or too hard, but here is the jungle so hot, you probably will not smell all that well at the end of the day. You will sweat from all your clothes. But it’s okay, it’s part of the experience. The views of mangrove forests, mountains and everything that comes with this beautiful adventure will distract you from the heat. The only thing that can distract you from the broad view of the mountain is the rain. Welcome to the Rain Forest Heavy rain in the afternoon makes the journey exciting. The clay is almost a deep foot and is almost impossible to reach. This will improve the fun. During our tour, we wrapped our package in a garbage bag (as instructed) and then slipped and slid down the pedestrian, foot, back, buttocks and stomach. The work becomes a matter that can stand up the hips hoping from the dry spot (est) to dry (est). The spots eventually lead to everyone falling into some amusing position in the mud.
The architecture of the city of Columbia is gone.
Your clothes will not dry. You start your day sweating through them in the heat and humidity pressures. Then you slid and slipped through the mud during the rain, and if that was not enough, you clean yourself by jumping into the pool or river along the way. At about four or five in the afternoon, you and your group are just wet slippery. The camp has lines to hang your clothes. But since this is a humid forest, it helps them enjoy the wet. The next morning, you just suck it up and start your day wet.

The special effects of hiking are an opportunity to interact with the Teyuna people. They are protected native tribes who live in the middle of the jungle. This is how they always live. Not affected by technology and lack of up-to-date education, they also maintain a homeless style home and remain a untouched culture. Children will always come to you on the path if you have a snack to feed them. But most of the Teyuna people keep their distance and go about their day working on their farm. I found it worthwhile and special to experience their lifestyle even when away from the arms as we traveled with them. At one of our camps, we had native kids making their cloths in the river where we were swimming. Their old school laundry techniques consist of dipping their clothes in water and fighting with rocks to help them clean up. On that day, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to interact with my kids playing in the stream.
Native home in Columbia
You reach archaeological sites on the third morning and do not disappoint. It is what you expect beautiful. After an hour’s walk and a few stairs you will reach the start of the famous terrace. The next and further sites and guides have been doing so for many years. There is a passion about first about Colombia as a whole and second on their native history. They tour you through the steps of the city and after that you have 45 minutes to explore the site or just sit and bring it in. As you leave town you can expect to stop swimming under the waterfall that appears. While you are near Bottom of the valley It is hard to imagine that there are other such large sites hidden in the jungle around Colombia.
