Argentine Magic Mountain Attracts UFO - And Esoteric Freaks

Capilla del Monte, Argentina- The Cerro Uritorco, in the central
Argentine province of Cordoba, at only 1,949 metres, is not
known for its altitude.

On the way to the summit there are no obstacles that could give
climbers a sense of achievement.

The attraction of the mountain in the Sierra Chica lies
elsewhere - spiritual and esoteric masters attribute energetic
qualities to it, and UFOs are said to gather there.

The bus ride to the small town of Capilla del Monte, at the foot
of the hill and some 725 kilometres north-west of Buenos Aires,
already reveals the first unusual "climbers."

A couple of US citizens in their mid-twenties read to each other
from a para-scientific booklet about places with special sources
of energy. A full chapter is devoted to the Uritorco.

At the departure point for the hike, on the outskirts of Capilla
del Monte, street vendors offer stones with special healing
powers and other esoteric utensils.

Books about the Uritorco are available in several languages
because the hill's positive forces cannot be felt without some
basic knowledge of its "spirituality reactor," a vendor explains
behind a thick cloud of perfumed smoke rising from huge joss

There, visitors find that indigenous natives already held the
mountain sacred, and that its name derives from the Comechingon
language and means something like "hill of the parrots."

During colonial times, natives are said to have been saved from
being enslaved to the Spaniards in miraculous ways, although the
credibility of the story remains controversial.

After crossing a wobbly hanging bridge over a brook, the hiker
gets to the entrance cabin, where he can buy the Uritorco ticket
for nine pesos (around 3 dollars). A look at the full cash
machine shows that business is good. Visitors must be back down
by 5 pm (2000 GMT) or at least those who are earthly creatures
of flesh and blood.

For beings from other galaxies, requirements are not quite as
strict. According to Uritorco mythology, extraterrestrial
creatures have built a city named Erks under the mountain, which
serves as the base for their operations on planet Earth.

Rare light visions have fed speculation that UFOs occasionally
land around the Uritorco. One rational explanation for the
phenomenon could be that under certain meteorological conditions
the rock, rich in quartz, favours electric discharges of sparks,
also known as St Elmo's fire.

For other esoteric doctrines, Erks is a metaphysical settlement
meant to lead the renewal of mankind. Legend has it that inside
there is a spherical temple and three mirrors which make it
possible for the Earth to engage in intercosmic exchanges of
data with other galaxies. From there, it is apparently also
possible to follow the life of any single individual on Earth.

The crucial date for the Uritorco's UFO image is January 9, 1986
when a fire and soot print with a diameter of 100 metres was
found, without a plausible explanation for its existence.

As if to prove that extraterrestrial beings continue to roam
around the Uritorco - the highest point mountain on the Sierra
Chica - to this day, the information leaflet El Vocero Turistico
has published photographs of celestial objects taken recently,
some of them very coarse-grained. Among these illustrations,
some bear a resemblance with remote-control model airplanes.

The relevant literature and the internet do not mention
accidents involving extraterrestrial creatures or of
encroachments upon Earthlings by beings from foreign galaxies.

There are, however, abundant reports of sexual contacts which
have allegedly taken place on and around the Uritorco. And
according to the reports these have been fully satisfactory for
both parties.
