Lost City Trek, 11

Posted by
Vaido (Võrumaa, Estonia) on 1 April 2022 in People & Portrait.

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. The Wiwa, Kogi, Arhuaco, and Kankuamo indigenous groups that remain in the area are believed to be the descendants of the Tayrona and have carried on their stories and traditions.
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. Arvatakse, et piirkonda jäänud Wiwa, Kogi, Arhuaco ja Kankuamo põlisrahvaste rühmad on Tayrona järeltulijad ning kannavad edasi samu traditsioone.

@Hiro: 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, it is kind of "identity card". In their free time, they take this paste and spread it on a disk, which over the years becomes larger and more dignified.
