French Colombian politician Ingrid betancourt was chained to and amongst jungle trees in Colombia for over 6 years.

From http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2008/jul/10/colombia.france1?gusrc=rss&feed=worldnews:

In the jungle she was often under foliage, unable to see the sky for days, or forced to march for up to 15-mile stretches, covering around 200 miles a year. She made five escape attempts during captivity, the first lasting only a few hours after realising she did not know how to cope in the jungle.
