Tierradentro Ridge Trail by Scott Holcomb on Flickr.

Via Flickr:
The heights overlooking the Tierradentro village contain a dark secret. Away from the eyes of the general public are numerous tomb sites that have been pilfered and violated, robbed of their treasures. To get here a strenuous vertical climb of 800 meters is required. Every few minutes walking along the ridge trail brings one to an illegal excavation.

Las alturas que domina el pueblo de Tierradentro contienen un oscuro secreto. Lejos de los ojos del público en general numerosos sitios tumba que han sido robados y violados, despojados de sus tesoros. Para llegar hasta aquí una extenuante subida vertical de 800 metros es necesario. Cada pocos minutos caminando por el sendero del canto lo lleva a uno a una excavación ilegal.
