Ciudad Perdida – the lost city of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, Columbia

Graham will take us to the lost city of the 11th century Tayrona civilization, hidden in the highest coastal mountain range in the world, the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, Columbia, (5775 meters). This remote mountain range is famous for coca production and the presentation will include a visit to the production facility of a jungle lab. Plus, the river boats of the Amazon, which will take us across the Amazon basin in a hammock from Porto Velho on the Rio Madeira to Belem at the mouth of the Amazon. There will also be a shocking revelation of botany and all botanists are urged to attend to be amazed.
