Hiking through the thick vegetation of the Sierra Nevada, you’ll ford across rivers and climb ancient stone steps. You’ll feel the humidity of the jungle drawing out your perspiration, as you follow the footsteps of your guide deep into the jungle.
After three days, you’ll finally emerge at the impressive ancient terraces and platforms of the Lost City. This archaeological wonder was built by the Tayrona people long before the Incas had built Machu Picchu.
You’ll have time to explore this site, surrounded by the green rolling peaks of the Sierra Nevada. This is the other cultural hike you can do in South America, the non-touristy alternative to the Incan Trail. And there is an entire culture to discover, one that came before the Incas.
