Vistahermosa, literally translated to mean Beautiful View, is a region located in Colombia’s Meta department in the south-eastern part of the country. For 50 years Vistahermosa has been marred by the ugliness of war. The population has experienced the worst of the on-going violent conflict between Paramiliatries, Government forces and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC-EP). As a result, the region has the highest number of landmine victims in Colombia and the people living here have mostly forgotten what peace feels like.
