Recommendations Lost City

A lot of people asked us how difficult the trek was, if they could manage it, if it was dangerous. Here a few answered questions to make up your own mind.

..........................................................................................................................................

Is it tough?

No, the trek can be done in 6 days which would mean that you would walk an average of 4/5 hours a day. You can still struggle on some of the climbs but if you are aged between 15 to 60 and in good health, the trek itself should be fine. You will be wet most of the time so that can add to the overall difficulty.

.........................................................................................................................................

Is it dangerous?

Yes but some of the trails are narrow and falling is not an option. Some animals (mainly snakes) can also be a hazard. Follow the guides' advice and you will be fine. we have heard about accidents, 95% of them related to people taking unnecessary risks, like people doing backflips over the river where there's not enough water, or people deliberately touching a poisonous snakes to impress other people...

Is it safe, will I be kidnapped?

The paramilitaries handed over their guns in 2005/2006 and the army controls 100% of the area, you will be safe from political trouble. A group was kidnapped in the early 2000 but no one was killed and Colombia was a completely different country at the time.

What should I bring?

Follow our checklist for a perfect backpack.
