  • If you exercise regularly and enjoy nature, then the path to the Lost City is an exceptional experience that you should add to your list of adventures. For those concerned about their physical condition, most days consist of about 7-8 kilometers trekking through challenging trails that are often steep, slippery and muddy, including forging the Buritaca River. During the dry season, the water may be knee high while water levels may increase to chest-height with strong currents during the rainy season. We recommend bringing a reliable pair of trekking shoes.
  • Avoid carrying a heavy and uncomfortable backpack. During the trek, everyone carry what they want to take.
  • Keep your body hydrated by drinking water constantly.
  • During walks, always stay with your group and avoid getting away the paths.
  • Protect your skin by reapplying sunscreen regularly and wearing protective clothing and a hat.
  • Minimize your plastic garbage and dispose waste properly.
  • Leave what you find and respect wildlife and local customs.
  • During the day the weather is hot and humid, so we recommend wearing comfortable clothing, shirts and shorts for walking; at night the temperature is about 16°C and there is a high proportion of mosquitoes and other insects, so it is important to wear long pants and long-sleeved shirts for sleeping and use insect repellent.
