Ciudad Perdida Trek, Part 3

The journey to the Lost City was an adventure and amazing but the Lost City itself was the icing on the cake. It really made the entire trek perfect.
This is a map on stone made by the Tayrona people.
We made it. Picture's don't do enough to describe the beauty and magnitude of Ciudad Perdida.

A shot of our whole group minus our guide. We had a great group - I was the oldest person but that didn't bother me. I had no problem keeping up and I will always be young at heart.
Like I said in a previous post, the Colombian military is present and I thought it was so funny that this guy was willing to take multiple photo's for everyone. I just had to take a shot of him.
This is part of the military camp.
This is Amber and I with our guide, Saul from Magic Tour. Great guide. 
These were all over in the Lost City. They were used to grind corn into mill or flour.
I loved that I was able to see the different stages of life in these flowers - and they were all in the same spot.
As we made our way up the endless steps you could feel that you were stepping into somewhere special, somewhere great. From the mossy walls to the magnificent mountains all around, we had stepped into a small piece of history.
 
Below are a few pic's after getting off the trail and having our last meal together. I couldn't have asked for a better group or guide to be with. What a blast.

If you are planning on visiting the coastal region of Colombia, I highly recommend doing this trek and doing it with Magic Tour Colombia. It is well worth it, every step of the way.

Until next time,
Happy Trekkin'.
