This national treasure is just one of the reasons! About 650 years older than Machu Picchu, the vast Lost City of Teyuna lies hidden and deep in the dense Colombian jungle. Unearthed by outsiders in 1972 and largely restricted due to local unrest, Ciudad Perdida is now among South America’s greatest but least known gems.
This trip includes the four-day jungle trek to reach the site’s 1,200 steps and will see you camping along the way. You will also visit beautiful Bogota, the capital, and the stunning Caribbean colonial coastal city of Cartagena. Colombia is a must-see destination!
