Overview
Not for the faint of heart, this trip to Ciudad Perdida, the Lost City in Colombia's Sierra Nevada, is five days of trekking through jungle, wading through rivers and climbing the 1,200 steps to the City. It's all worth it when you get to experience this astonishing place and learn about the history of the Tayrona people who built it over 1,000 years ago.
