Length: 29.2 mi • Est. Multi-day
The Ciudad Perdida (Lost City) Trail starts at El Mamey and is 14.5 miles each way with a fair amount of up and down climbing. By law, can only be done while accompanied by a guide (about $350). The final 4 miles to the Lost City is a beautiful, ancient stone trail that evokes fantasies of Indiana Jones. An epic jungle journey to the Lost City, the ruins of an ancient city once populated by the Tayrona tribe. Today, the trail passes through land settled by their descendants, the Kogui. It's common to see Kogui along the trail, living as they have for centuries, and their presence only adds to the sense that one is entering another world. Food is both carried and prepared by the guide company, and accommodations are likewise arranged at semi-primitive camps where the groups sleep in either hammocks or cots (w/ mosquito nets). The camps also have showers and flush toilets. Surprisingly, there is also cold drinks for sale at every camp, including beer.Show more

If going clockwise expect to pay 4000 COP at the beginning. It’s a gradual climb up a road/trail that brings you to a small home where you can have a coffee (2000 COP) and take a break. Highest altitude is at this point. From there it’s a steep narrow trail down. Most of the trail has rocks and mud. There are some great sights to see along the way before getting to the finish. Lots of open mountainous fields. Near the end you must pay 3000 COP as this is another private property. Great lighting as the sun rises. Show more

Segment of the Camino Real mountain trail, which goes from the town of Barichara to Guane. Almost reaching Guane is the Mirador de la Piedra that offers beautiful views. In general, the path is well defined, it is made predominantly of stone, although in some parts, especially where the vegetation is more abundant, it has dirt and can be more muddy.Show more

Very steep, rocky trail but worth the hard work for the great views at the top, including the city of Cali! Recommend going with a guide as it is not marked but is obvious in most parts. Lots of tropical birds singing but hard to find in the dense foliage!Show more
