The Wow: A living ruin of 170 oval-shaped raised stone terraces cut into the jungle hillside. Visiting its ancient beauty requires an arduous six-day trek (four days up and two days back).

Why Now? In recent years, Colombia has been enjoying a mini-tourism boom, and the number of backpackers, travelers, and adventurers who wish to make this trek has exploded.

    I wish there was an easier way to see the list than clicking on page numbers on bottom of the page.
    I gave up after no6. :-( A ‘next’ button would be so nice. Or scrolling down.

  • Hey Tasha!
    Totally hear you on the next button – we’re filing an enhancement on the pages and hope to have it fixed soon. Thank you so much for your feedback!

    Great special report, lot of good travel ideas. Also a bit sad reading, as it is usually we humans that are changing things… often irrevocably.

    A world without the mountain gorillas is unbearable thought, and there are too many fragile ecosystems already under threat. Your report highlights what a beautiful planet we live on, but also how badly we are treating it.
