LOST CITY

Exciting trekking, where there will be no lack of experiences and encounters with the Indians of the communities located along the way, while they carry out their daily activities, walking through the stone paths wrapped in the jungle that lead to Teyuna (as the indigenous people call it).

This trip, which as its main activity, offers the trek to the Lost City (Teyuna), which is not easy at all, but it is worth making an effort to gain the heat, the mosquitoes and cross the rivers. The route with altitudes that vary between 800 and 1300 meters, in the middle of the Colombian rainforest, one of the last biodiversity sanctuaries, with bright colors, where the current Kogui, Arhuaca and Wiwa indigenous people are found (all descendants of the Tayrona), continue to preserve their traditions, making this trip unique.
