Why is the population distributed very unevenly in Colombia?

What I've noticed is that a lot of people live in the mountain chain in Colombia. Also, about 1/2 of the country is virtually uninhabited...

Why is this?

    Population is unevenly distributed in most countries. It has to do with geography and climate. All else being equal, it is hard to get around in mountains, it is easy to transport goods and materials where the land is fairly flat and dry or where you have access to deep rivers or good harbors. If you live in a desert, it is expensive providing water and transporting food. Living near swamps means there may be a lot of disease carrying mosiquitos.
