Short Description

Everyone wants to visit an undiscovered region before it becomes a hotbed of tourism. Trek the Ciudad Perdida (Lost City) at Teyuna, and have that wish come true. Get firsthand knowledge of the area’s unique culture with an Indigenous guide and an English-speaking CEO accompanying you the entire way. Together, trek through lush jungles and across streams before stopping at an Indigenous village for a G Adventures for Good-supported community lunch. Arrive at Teyuna and explore the uncrowded ruins at leisure, marvelling at what would have been here in years gone by. Say you got here first and had the Lost City all to yourself.

Small groups are usually defined as between 10 and 24 travelers, often less. If you're the kind of person who enjoys more intimate experiences and personal service this is a good choice. All else being equal you will pay a premium for this style vs a larger group tour.

It was an amazing trek, however, I recommend that for the physically demanding ones, individuals are required to provide proof of medical and physical fitness to demonstrate their capability

I would say that this trip was the hardest thing I've ever done, both mentally and physically. But it was equally, if not more, rewarding! This was my first time out of the country and my group as well as Marco made me feel safe and they encouraged me throughout the trek!

Great trek, glad i did it now before even more crowds find it. needs better camps and better pacing so that the length of hiking each day is more even and not loaded on the last two days. THERE NEEDS TO BE A BETTER FIRST AID KIT. THIS HIKE IS HIGH RISK FOR FALLING AND THERE IS NO SPLINTING OR SLING MATERIAL IN THE KIT. the hotel (aka hostal) accommodations before and after the trek need to be changed asap, as hotel tayromar was cheap and disgusting.

Flights & Transport

Only ground transport 4x4, walking.

Group Size:

Max 16, Avg 10

Solo Notes

We believe solo travellers should not have to pay more to travel so our group trips are designed for shared accommodation and do not involve a single supplement. Single travellers joining group trips are paired in twin or multi-share accommodation with someone of the same sex for the duration of the trip. Some of our Independent trips are designed differently and solo travellers on these itineraries must pay the single trip price.

Accomodations

Hotels (2 nts), camping (4 nts hammocks/rustic bunks).

Accommodation on the Lost City trek varies from day to day. In the campsites, the majority of the accommodation is in hammocks or bunks, with a mosquito net for cover. In the campsites, there are cold showers, flushing toilets and seating areas. Some of the campsites have lighting and power sockets, although these are not always guaranteed to be available. Because of the humidity, we do not suggest bringing a sleeping bag, as it would be too hot. Recommended is a sleeping sheet or a sleeping bag liner that can provide a level of comfort at higher temperatures.

Guides

Chief Experience Office (CEO) throughout, local guides.

Age Notes

Min. Age: You must be 18 to travel unaccompanied on a G Adventures tour. For minors travelling with a guardian over 21 years old, the minimum age is 12.

Rules & Other Requirements

Illegal drugs will not be tolerated on any trips. Possessing or using drugs not only contravenes the laws of the land but also puts the rest of the group at risk. Smoking marijuana and opium is a part of local culture in some parts of the world but is not acceptable for our travellers. Our philosophy of travel is one of respect towards everyone we encounter, and in particular the local people who make the world the special place it is. The exploitation of people in the sex trade is completely contrary to this philosophy. Our CEOs have the right to expel any member of the group if drugs are found in their possession or if they engage in any form of paid sex work.
