Cerro Uritorco, Capilla del Monte

3.9
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.

    It is little difficulty, we went with children and the truth that just got tired at the end, very cute marked trail and is exciting for those old legends envelopes UFOS... To be filled with energy, there are a coffee-shop and only pay parking.
