It is important to note that the Lost City is closed every September for a whole month. Ciudad Perdida is still a sacred place for the indigenous communities and although they allow travelers to enter their territory, they believe that the great traffic of people to this place can make our Mother Earth sick. This is why every year in September the communities meet in the Lost City to do a “spiritual cleansing” of the territory led by their spiritual leader “mamo”.
