Lost City Trek 5D
Why this trip ?
It is the archaeological territory of an ancient Tayrona city located in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, whose foundation is attributed to the year 800 AD, many years before Machu Picchu.
The Tayrona paradise is made up of a series of terraces dug into the mountainside, made up of a network of tiled paths and small circular plazas. Access to Ciudad Perdida is done by ascending some 1,200 stone steps through the vast jungle of the region.
If you like adventure and feel in optimal physical condition to hike up to 6 hours a day, you will fully enjoy what this adventure has for you.
