Sorry we have to miss this one but will be visiting La Ciudad in February.

My fiance is in Puerta Gaitan working at the moment.  Let us know how this turns out.

Thanks to the funding of 231 million Colombian pesos (131 500 US$) granted by the USAID in the last week of April 2012, the second phase of the conservation project will be implemented. Through the Colombian Conservation Landscapes program, these funds will allow to generate capacity building and training of local guides, as well as indigenous and peasant smallholders on various topics. The program also includes Leave No Trace protocols, wilderness first aid, sustainable building practices, silvopastoral productive systems, and rural micro entrepreneurship related to heritage and natural conservation.

Visit the GHF website for a summary of all of the previous year's work at Ciudad Perdida.  In general, 2011 was very successful year on all fronts!

Hi Andy,

Thanks! Everyone agrees that the bridge lifts a great burden off the guides and improves visitor safety significantly. It also makes it easy for the indigenous kids and women to cross when the river is high, rather than have to wait for hours under the rain until a group of tourists comes around to help them cross.

Hi Santiago,

Congratulations to GHF and your partners on this significant piece of infrastructure. Having had to wade across the river up to my chest when I visited last June I know how much of a priority this bridge was for the communities living up stream and for safer visits to the archaeological site.

Here is a picture of the bridge after final assembly. Construction of the suspension bridge was funded by the Conservation Landscapes Program, Fondo Patrimonio Natural-USAID.
