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 December 2016

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.

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.

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 prostitutes is completely contrary to this philosophy. Our group leader has the right to expel any member of the group if drugs are found in their possession or if they use prostitutes.
