Zac Efron

Big Smiles in

Coke Capital of the World

Zac Efron chose an interesting place to escape this month ... jetting off to the mountainous cocaine capital of the world ... but he wasn't there for the skiing.

The above photos were snapped on September 11th in Peru, showing Efron smiling with fans. Sources tell TMZ, Zac flew to the South American country for some mountain climbing, as well as to see the ancient Inca ruins of Machu Picchu.

He was also mobbed by screaming girls a week later at an airport in Cuzco, not far from Machu Picchu.



We're not saying he did or did not partake of the local crop while he was there, but it's still ironic.

TMZ broke the story ... Efron entered rehab twice this year for a serious cocaine problem, most recently in April.

Fun fact: according to the White House drug czar (yeah, we got one of those) Peru overtook Colombia as the world's biggest cocaine exporter in 2011. Now that's what we call winning.

Lo que no informan es que USA es el principal inversionista de la droga que se produce gracias a sus modestas "bases militares" que tienen en la selva

I would say Peru is most known for it's mountains. Many go to Peru to climb Machupiku. It's said to be a very cathartic climb. I doubt Zac had to go that far to get cocaine. It seems pretty easy to acquire in LA, as is.

Well, maybe if Peru is the world's biggest cocaine exporter, is because USA is the biggest consumer of cocaine

Peru just like Colombia, is such a wonderful country that has soooo many things to offer other than just cocaine and that's all you point out. Very insulting to Peru and it's people

I was checking out TMZ earlier today and the faces of those two girls were clearly visible. What happened? Did TMZ think anyone would recognize them? After all, they're just two girls from some third world dirthole.

Yes you need to drink coca tea to help with elevation sickness however it is not concentrated cocaine. The coca plant is used for many noncocaine products...tea, lanacaine, novacaine.
