We’re back! Next up, we take you on a virtual tour of our @gadventures trek to the Lost City in the Sierra Nevada mountain range, northern Colombia. Although much of the trail is thick in the rainforest, the views and landscape are remarkably diverse. The current trekking route is challenging and steep, winding slowly uphill 23  kilometers (14  miles, roundtrip 29 miles) and down through river valleys until you reach the Lost City (Ciudad Perdida) itself, known also as Teyuna. Archaeologists estimate that the site was built around A.D. 800 by the Tayrona civilization, though there are limited clues due to the lack of written evidence and site looting that occurred during its public "discovery" in the early 1970s.  Today, the area is home to the local indigenous groups — Wiwa, Kogi, Arhuaco, and Kankuamo — who are believed to be the descendants of the Tayrona people who inhabited the area since approximately A.D. 200.
