      the colombia panama border
      which has come to be almost synonymous with the darien gap
      is a true boundary rather than just a notoriously wild & vague frontier of separation
      & it has been demarcated at all the major ridges & coastal terminals by a series of 14 markers since 1938 per
      with map
      but up to the present this boundary is not known to be transited by more than a couple of dirt tracks
      & it seems only a couple of the markers have even been visited or photographed
      Colombia-Panama Border

      on the colombia side the entire border lies in choco department aka ch
      but the recently revised subdivisional map of panama now shows 2 comarca trijunctions on copa
      namely
      a newly acknowledged copa2chdrem trijunction where the embera comarca meets darien province
      situated at very roughly n8d10m39s w77d14m56s or just east of cerro tacarcuna
      & to its northwest 
      the previously noticed copa2chemky where the embera & kuna yala comarcas meet 
      formerly called copa2chdrsb for san blas & darien provinces but evidently identical
      situated at very roughly n8d31m24s w77d26m27s
      all based on apparently very coarse google earth & google maps positioning
       
      but the most salient point is that these positions appear to correspond fairly closely with the ibs positioning for markers 9 & 8 aka tanela & cerro gandi respectively
      nor does there appear to be any other rationale for the comarca boundary delimitations than the same watershed divides these markers signal
      so there is a fairly good probability that these 2 original ridge markers are now effectively if not legally serving as tripoint markers too
