The Darien Gap jungle is one of the most inhospitable places on Earth – roamed by natural horrors along with gangs of bandits and kidnappers.

People daring to trek through the “never-ending green hell” used to fear its suffocating temperatures and deadly animals — now it’s the thought of being raped and left for dead.

The biggest concern for those preparing to traverse the only overland route from South America into Central America no longer stems from the thought of what they may encounter – but who?

The Darien Gap is a narrow 106km stretch of nearly untouched jungle between Colombia and Panama, The Sun reports.

It is crossed by hundreds of thousands of people every year as a migration route – and many of them do not make it out alive.

One of the most perilous stretches is known as the “Hill of Death”.
