On your way, you can visit tropical forests, chilly lakes, spectacular hills, green valleys, and, of course, wooden homes and different stone structures left from ancient settlements.

Trekking in the Lost city is a great opportunity to discover four indigenous groups—the Wiwa, Kogi, Arhuaco, and Kankuamo which are believed to be descendants of the Tayrona civilization. You can learn some traditions and rituals from the indigenous people as well. Besides, you can also see the unique fauna of Colombia and enjoy encounters with different kinds of birds and animals.

It's better to have a guided tour as it's not easy to find your way around. While trekking there are plenty of fruit and water stops where you can rest your muscles.

Trekking in the Lost City of Tayrona is available all year-round. In order to avoid torrential downpours and slippery trails, it's better to go trekking in the dry season from December to early March. It can be very challenging and does require a certain level of fitness. Don't forget to take waterproof sprays from bugs and mosquitoes.
