Accompanied by an indigenous guide from the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, you will make this journey until you reach the Lost City. The route is strong and you will need a lot of physical condition and energy to get to the top. You will enjoy the fauna and flora typical of the Sierra and immerse yourself in the ancestral culture of the Kogui and Wiwa indigenous people.
We will start our tour from the oldest city in Colombia: Santa Marta. At 8:15 a.m. a 4x4 vehicle will take us to the sector of Mamey (Machete Pelao); after 2 hours of travel we arrive to Mamey where we will have lunch and then start a 7.6 km hike to the first camp, Cabaña de Adán. This is a peasant community where we will spend the night at 450 meters above sea level, this first day of hiking is demanding, so we recommend receiving instructions from the guide carefully. We will also stop at a crystal clear river to take a refreshing bath.
Some people complete the hike in 3 hours, others in 5, it all depends on your physical condition.
We will begin a hike of approximately 10 hours. Halfway we will pass a settlement of the indigenous community of Mutanzhi, then we will arrive at the second camp (Cabaña Paraiso Teyuna) located at an altitude of 830 meters above sea level, here we will be at the foot of Teizhuna (Teyuna), the sacred city of the Tayrona people. In this tour we will appreciate a good part of the fauna and flora of our Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta. In the afternoon we can relax and take a bath in the river. In the evening the guide will talk more about Ciudad Perdida and its sacred meaning for the indigenous people of the Sierra.
At night in this place the indigenous guide will share with us about the history and customs of his community and the region.
After breakfast we will leave at 7:00 a.m. to Ciudad Perdida. To reach the sacred city, we will climb 1,200 steps built by the ancient Tayrona people. After approximately one hour, we will arrive at the city and take a tour of the different sacred sites. At 11:00 a.m. we will return to the camp for lunch. After lunch we will begin the 5 to 6 hour descent to the Wiwa Hut, belonging to an indigenous community where we will spend the night.
The last day of the adventure begins with breakfast to continue the way back to the point where it all began, on the way we will find rivers and waterfalls to refresh ourselves, until finally arriving at the Mamey where we will have lunch and our 4x4 vehicle will be waiting for us to return to the city of Santa Marta, where we will arrive around 5:00 p.m. having enjoyed an enriching and new experience in the magical Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta.
