Unfortunately the awesome Ciudad Perdida trekking is not on everyone’s bucketlist when traveling to Colombia. I know four days is a long time and not everyone loves to do a hike, but for me it was the absolute highlight during my one month in Colombia. Let me show you five reasons why it definitely should be on top of your list!
1. You make great friends
A hike of four days is definitely not easy so you bond with others so quick. Everyday you walk for many hours and at the end of the day everyone is extremely tired. But during those tired moments, you connect with others immediately. It’s the feeling of doing this together, the collective feeling. And in the morning everyone is so happy and ready for another great day.
2. The views during the hike are amazing
Who doesn’t love a good view? Luckily, during the Ciudad Perdida trekking you have the best views: green valleys, rugged mountains and gorgeous sunrises. That’s pretty amazing!
3. You live with the tribe
Living with a tribe is really special. I’ve never been more surrounded by a tribe than during the Ciudad Perdida trekking. They sit next to you at the table, you will have a close look into their daily lives and after a while they become totally normal for you.
4. It’s also about culture and history
The Ciudad Perdida trekking is not all about hiking and nature, it’s also about culture and history. The Lost City itself has a very interesting history. But the guide also tells you more stories: about the culture, about the way the tribe lives and about his own experiences.
5. It can be so adventurous
Adventures make stories. They are the best memories you will ever create. The Ciudad Perdida will become one of those great memories. During the hike it can rain, so you will be wet for the rest of the days. It can storm while you’re walking in the middle of a field. You have to cross rivers to get to the other side. It’s extremely adventurous and that’s what I love the most about it.
