"The Lost City" Ciudad Perdida by K1W1

Ciudad Perdida Travel Guide: 51 reviews and 203 photos

Machu Picchu without the crowds

The lost city trek is a 5 or 6 day trek up though the Sierra Nevadas to a ruined city. What makes this different than the Inca Trail is that you will have the trail to yourself (and guides). The trail goes through some fantastic scenery and arrives at the ruins which overlook a beautiful valley. Definitely a highlight to any Colombian trip.

    Trekking to Ciudad Perdiada sounds like a great experiense. Maybe I should skip other places I have planed to see in Colombia, to go there instead.
