Cerro Uritorco, Capilla del Monte
(3.9/5 based on 750+ 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.

  • As experience was excellent. It is demanding but not impossible. Reaching the top is magical after 3 hours of ascent. The view from the top is magnificent in all its cardinal points. The decline also was quite hard but not impossible. I recommend it as a journey to be performed in tranqui and relaxed manner. The connection with nature is total.
