because you enter a true trek where you will know different cultures including the most native of the Sierra Nevada, the Kogui culture, you will also be surrounded by a lot of vegetation, rivers and people doing this tour before you.

Hike for 4 days to the Lost City, Santa Marta
"Our guide was knowledgeable and cheerful, the food and snacks were excellent, and the accommodations overnight were better than expected (real mattresses). It is a difficult hike, and faster-paced, so if you work an office job like I do, I’d recommend doing lots of stairs and cardio before you go. 😅 The views along the way, including the Lost City, were stunning."..."

"I had such a lovely experience on this hike! One of my favorite things that I've done so far while traveling around South America. The hike is challenging, but so worth it. The company was responsive, very helpful with my dietary needs and my guide Miguel was wonderful. Couldn't recommend this more!"..."

Lost City Trek 4 days 3 nights from Santa Marta
"The expotour four day backpacking adventure to the Lost City caught my attention. I looked within to see if I had the endurance and faith to complete it. The Covid drama had forced me to find peace and reassurance outdoors riding my bicycle for the past six months. My body and mind accepted long distance bike riding (75 miles ) to develop cardiovascular strength and mental resilience. I also consumed lots of produce and water to remain well hydrated. I had taken the yellow fever vaccine several years ago and it’s valid for a couple of more years. Emotional stress has giving me a mild case of vertigo and Urgent Care gave me pills to control it. On the backpacking trek, I wore clothing that whisks away the sweat and dries quickly ( exofficio and kuhls )Moving from camp to camp does not allow regular cloths to dry. I used plenty of antibacterial wipes on my body and face to remove the sweat and dirt... I chose not to shower. I wore no cosmetics, deodorant, body lotion, hair gels or perfume to avoid mosquitoes. Shoes with good traction gripped the earth as I walked on hills. A waterproof backpack kept my stuff dry as I crossed the river. I successfully finished the four day challenge with minor swollen ankles due to forgetting to do calve raises to strengthen them. Diego, Isidros ( two guides ) and Jesus, the cook have an easy going personality that I appreciated. We bantered and found humor in each other’s company. I felt accepted in their presence and they helped me navigate the unfamiliar trails without fear....I would do the trail again and definitely train for it, otherwise, you will return to El Mamey ( the starting town )on a mule."..."
