Cerro Uritorco, Capilla del Monte

3.9
#2 of 52 in Nature in Central Argentina
Volcano Nature / Park
Climb to the highest peak of the Sierras Chicas in a rewarding trek at Cerro Uritorco. Rated as a medium-difficulty hike, the official trail takes most of the day to complete. Once at the top, walk around to reap the fullest reward, as you'll get a sweeping view of the mountains and even find some other remote spots for pictures. The mountain has been a hotspot for UFO sightings and other paranormal incidents--hence the alien statues at the bottom of the park.

  • Unforgettable. It is intense rise but to save energy for the descent... is not easy and you have to be attentive. Do not hesitate to take any canes that previous visitors leave before the first post... they need and then leave them with best wishes for those who come.

  • A beautiful place to connect with nature, from the beginning of the road to the top, we went with my parents and it is super recommended! While you charge... Worth paying
