Climbing Cerro Uritorco - Climbing Capilla Del Monte - Argentina

Cerro Uritorco is supposedly a hot spot for UFO sightings, but that shouldn't prevent superstitious travelers from making the climb. It takes about three hours to summit at 1,980 meters (6,496 ft) but the reward is a postcard view across the valley—well worth the risk of what could be a close encounter with otherwordly creatures. Hikers have to start between 8 - 11 a.m., and are required to return to the base by 5 p.m. Be sure to bring water and a few snacks to re-energize if you plan to spend the bulk of the day on the mountain.
