Colombia - Lost City Trekking

Everyone wants to visit an undiscovered region before it becomes a hotbed of tourism. By trekking the "Ciudad Perdida" at Teyuna, that honour can definitely be attained.

Sleep in hammocks among local communities while absorbing the unique culture of the area, then trek through lush jungles and across streams before arriving at the ruins of Teyuna. Explore the uncrowded ruins at leisure and marvel at what would have been here in years gone by. Say you got here first and had the Lost City all to yourself.
