The organization to reach the site is still minimum acceptable: many hours march quite difficult, camps with minimum services but nice atmosphere, rude, your are in the jungle thus be prepared to live with mosquitos and others ... animals. But when you reach the Ciudad Perdida then you will forget the efforts made and your spirit will be reinforced. The... More

When you will visit Colombia you will definitely need to walk to the lost city, because I think it was the best thing we did during our time in Colombia. I will explain a little about our trip and give some advice about what to bring and what not to bring. At the beginning of May we were planning on... More

At the beginning of May, myself and a new found group of friends set out on an adventure through the beautiful rainforests of Colombia to find the infamous Lost City. I don't want to give too much away, but it was a fantastic (and challenging) experience! We booked through Expotur in advance and our guide for the trip was Sixto... More

I will start this review by saying that my husband and I are 28 year olds with a reasonable level of fitness. We were both pleasantly surprised by how achievable the trek was in 4 days (the online reviews made us worry about what we were getting ourselves in for). There were definitely hills and the heat did make it... More

Amazing yet challenging walk, but extremely rewarding. The walk itself takes you into the heart of the Sierra Nevada jungle and is almost as impressive as the Lost City its self. I did the tour with Expotur who were fantastic. Our group was pretty big with a variety of walking paces amongst us however the guides were able to accommodate... More

I found this very challenging but I'm not fit and over 40. it's either boiling or raining heavily - there are not many Mosquitos bugs etc to worry about just very steep and sometimes very slippery endless paths - i was with Israelis so had to do the trek camping for 3 nights which nearly destroyed me - regarding vegan...

I felt compelled to write a review myself because this trek is easier than I was lead to believe and not nearly as remote as you would think. Also, pare down your gear, you will be thankful for a light pack. Below are some tidbits of information that might be helpful; - You can buy water on the trail as... More

This was absolutely incredible. Probably the hardest thing i have ever done. But it is worth it! We booked the trip with a company called Expotur whilst in Colombia. They were fab. We had an amazing guide called Jhon whose spirit and enthusiasm for the jungle, wildlife and the trek made the experience ever more lovable. Do go with these... More
