Day 2 - Vista Hermosa Camp at Lorenzo Pass
It's 5:30 and the alarm sounds. After a hard night, after having a partner who snored without stopping, we got down to work and began to have breakfast at about 6 in the morning. A strong breakfast to face a tough stage.Day 2 - Lost City - Vista Hermosa Camp at Lorenzo Pass
Almost 20 kilometers and 1000 meters of altitude over mud roads and dozens of rivers to get around. Therefore you have to take it easy.Day 2 - Lost City - Vista Hermosa Camp at Lorenzo Pass
The day dawns semi clear, after a night where it rained a lot and therefore the road seemed slippery. Puddles, mud and rivers more than normal expected us. With this in mind and observing the great views that surrounded us, the problems were quickly removed.Day 2 - Lost City - Vista Hermosa Camp at Lorenzo Pass
Route to the Paso Lorenzo camp
You start the route up and down a series of hills, until you begin to climb a strong ramp that ends at a viewpoint and in turn with a watermelon booth. The mud was present and caution was laid with each step we marked.Day 2 - Lost City - Vista Hermosa Camp at Lorenzo Pass
Also from this point we will plummet for 300 meters of unevenness until the campanentoWiwa. A hard descent if it rains and with slopes that exceeded 20%.Day 2 - Lost City - Vista Hermosa Camp at Lorenzo Pass

From the Wiwa camp there are about an hour and a half in an endless climb to another camp that in this case is run by the army for security reasons. There is about 350m of unevenness up here. It also serves as a refreshment point.Tayrona Village
The best thing is that before reaching the top, we will pass through several Wiwas villages where you will barely see a soul, since most hide from tourism. For example, we saw two children who quickly hid in a hut.Day 2 - Lost City - Vista Hermosa Camp at Lorenzo Pass
End of the stage
Here it started to rain in the seas and we had to wait about 30 minutes while they offered us orange and pineapple. Seeing that the downpour did not end, we continued knowing that we had another hour and a half more until the Lorenzo Pass camp where we would spend a night before arriving in Lost City.Day 2 - Lost City - Vista Hermosa Camp at Lorenzo Pass
This section was passed through water. Arriving completely wet at the end of the stage and with the boots you throw a mess. The bad thing that with the prevailing humidity we knew that they would not dry out, especially when the newspaper we were carrying arrived completely wet.
