The Lost City Trek in northern Colombia takes you on a 60 km trip through the jungles, hills, and river valleys of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The destination of the trek is to reach Ciudad Perdida, Colombia’s “Lost City,” the home of an ancient Tairona people.
Now there are Kogi people in these mountains. The Kogi have many characteristics that define their culture. For example, they wear white clothes and similar shoulder bags made of plant fibers. All Kogi men receive a "poporo" when they come of age. The "poporo" is a small, hollow gourd that is filled with "lima," a type of powder that is made by heating and crushing shells to produce lime. Kogi men have the "poporo" always with them.

Kolumbia põhjaosas, Sierra Nevada mägedes asub "Kadunud linna" matkarada, mis viib 60 kilomeetri pikkusele teekonnale üle mägede, läbi džunglite ja jõeorgude. Matka eesmärk on jõuda paika nimega Ciudad Perdida, "kadunud Linn", mis on olnud sajandeid tagasi iidse Tairona rahva kodu.
Praegu elab sealkandis kogi rahvas Kogidel on palju neile omaseid traditsioone. Nad kannavad valgeid riideid ning sarnaseid taimekiududest valmistatud õlakotte. Kõik Kogi mehed täisealiseks saades "poporo", väikse õõnsa kõrvitsa, mis on täidetud teatud tüüpi pulbriga. Seda pulbrit saadakse merekarpide kuumutamisel ja purustamisel. Kogi mehed kannavad poporot alati kaasas.
