Inspirock Rating:
3.9/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web
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.

  • The ascent to mount is actually a bit tiresome, and depends on the rate will go up. I advise you go up in groups and take plenty of water, because the weather is getting dry. There are some shortcuts that can reduce the distance, but the path is more difficult. Finally, to get to the top it was all worth it, the view is beautiful and can still count on birds around us!

  • Side legends on UFOs, it is an excellent ride, boasts beautiful views and the option of spending the night in the cabin halfway no doubt is the most recommended. The ascent and descent lasts about 5 hours, up to 14 o'clock you can climb, so if they think up and down, latest it is recommended start is at 9 am.
