Cerro Uritorco, Capilla del Monte

(3.9/5 based on 800+ 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.

  • Had the opportunity of doing it's night, simply beautiful. See the sunrise in the cima is priceless. We had an excellent guide, nati, super professional and that we re take care. Lowering costs longer than these exhausted but worth it!

  • I love to visit the Hill when we go to Cordoba. I feel peace and the good energy of the place helps to relax and take all the stress accumulated. We visited two pots and the water is very cold! But great!

  • I am from Córdoba and went many times to the Cerro Uritorco. It has a spectacular natural environment, a privileged landscape and even encourage me to say that some supernatural power. As paseo natural it super recommend, the problem is the privatization and abuse that makes the company that it concessions. For access to the base of the hill there are that go a street of land, when one arrives to determined point is located with a toll, in which there are that pay $150 by auto for power access. Otherwise, you must leave the car and continue until the base stepped. Once at the base of the Hill, must register to upload (which I think is correct) and pay $250 per person. This price is to climb without a guide, even though the path is marked, seems to me an abuse charge that per person. The price guide or find out. It seems to me that charge to go up a hill that should be something public, is a lively and $150 of "toll" is a total scam. I hurt much that being Cordoba have to see these things. Then will complain when them people is van to vacation to the outside. The unfortunate truth!
