List Description

List Information

Colombia is a very ruggedly mountainous country, and this list is only an attempt at determining the department high points. I checked various sources and feel that many of these points are accurate, but many, especially in the lowland areas, are just guesses. One of my main sources was a detailled road map from the 1970s.
