Ciudad Peridada, Colombia (6/18)

Ciudad Perdida (Spanish for ‘Lost City’) is an ancient archaeological site nestled up in the Sierra Nevada mountain region of northern Colombia, built by the Tayrona people and dating to approximately 800 AD – older than Machu Picchu. Treks are four days, although I one I took with a more ethical company is five days, with many going back into the indigenous community.
