Awesome hike, with great scenery, beautiful nature and in the end the highlight of every Colombia trip. The trek was not that hard but the circumstances are making it tough. It is recommended to take some good shoes with you as well as enough extra clothing. Our guide, levi Lara, took great care for us! Every stop he gave us... More

Awesome hike, with great scenery, beautiful nature and in the end the highlight of every Colombia trip. Our guide Levi from Expotur did a great job and provided us with lots of information about the city and it's culture. It is recommended to take some good shoes with you as well as enough extra (dry) clothing for when it starts... More

We went in the 4 - day jungle trip with our expotur guide Levi Lara. The trek was not that hard but the circumstances are making it though. The humidity is very high, the weather extreme: very hot and sunny to intense rain. There are a lot of mosquitos and you don't sleep very well. But it's all part of... More

It was an amazing experience - beautiful sights, sounds and scenery and interesting history/cultural info about the lost city itself and the local indigenous people (Kogi's). It was very much all about the journey rather than just the lost city itself which you spend a half day at. The trek was tough - 4 days of steep inclines/declines, staying in... More

We went on the 5-day jungle-trek with Expotur guide Miguel Gomez and his brother Diego. The trek was an amazing adventure, one of the absolute highlights of our trip to Colombia. Every day we got up at 5am. After a delicious breakfast (which was different every day, one day we got granola with yoghurt and fresh fruit, another day eggs... More

As long as you have a reasonable level of fitness, this trek could well be the best thing you do in Colombia. ExpoTur treated our group fantastically. There were regular breaks for fruit or to buy a drink or snacks (so its worth taking a bit of small denomination cash). The food provided for all the meals was amazing. Great... More

The trek to the Lost City is not for the unfit or faint hearted but it is a rewarding adventure if you are prepared to slog through hot, humid jungle for up to 4 days. The climax of the Lost Coty is well worth it and it still retains a mysterious hold on the imagination and you can imagine your... More

This challenging hike through the rainforest was beautiful, landscape like I've never seen. The trek itself is quite physically demanding, particularly during the rainy days. I advise carrying a very light load, there's not much point in clean clothing during the day, as you get dirty pretty quickly. The option to hire a mule for your gear is also a... More

My husband and I, both people of average fitness, were really apprehensive about this trek after reading reviews on here, but we made it out in 4 days just fine. That being said, after completing 3 different treks in South America including this one, I would still rate this one the hardest simply due to the heat. By the end... More
