The Gold Caves

The Story about The Gold Caves (Los Tayos) in Ecuador & South America presented by “Gold” site part of the Open International Joint-stock Corporation “GLOBAL MARINE POLLUTION

In the beginning

Argentinean ethnologist Moritz was one of the first to begin exploring tunnels in South America. In Morona-Santiago in the territory of Ecuador, he mapped the previously unknown system of tunnels that he discovered to anyone, with a length of hundreds of kilometers. These tunnels extend deep enough under the ground, creating a giant maze that is clearly not of natural origin.

A huge hole cut into the rock, from which the bowels lead down to successive horizontal platforms, to a depth of almost 240 m. Here, too, there are rectangular tunnels that collapse at an even right angle. In the tunnels, the walls and ceilings are so smooth, polished, and perfectly smooth, as if covered with varnish. There are also rooms, about the size of a theater room, in which furniture found: a table and seven chairs made of plastic-like material. Here Juan Moritz found a huge number of metal plates with engraved letters; some of them engraved space travel and astronomical concepts. All of these plates are identical, as if “cut out” of metal to the measure, made with the help of high technology.

The discovery of Huang Moritz undoubtedly lifts the veil over the mystery of those who built the tunnels, their level of knowledge and age.

Another expedition – the Anglo-Ecuador – in 1976 on the border of Ecuador and Peru explored one of the underground tunnels in Los Tayos. There found a table with chairs that have a backrest of more than two meters. However, the most interesting was another room – obviously, the library, which is a long hall with a rather narrow middle aisle. On the walls were shelves with ancient thick folios, having about 400 pages in each. Sheets of books are made of gold and filled with the incomprehensible human font.

The system of tunnels and caves near Ecuador and Peru stores an ancient treasury, including two libraries, one from metal books, and the other on crystal tables.

 In 1973, Erich von Daniken claimed that he was part of a gigantic underground tunnel system in Ecuador, which, he told, covers almost the entire continent, clear evidence of the high development of our ancestors or aliens. Somewhere in the tunnels, there is a library in which the books were made of metal, and this is in an area where today only “primitive” Indian tribes live without any written language.

And history started as a snowball.

How it was in 1926 and it is now to watch below:

Expedition to Tayos Caves: Never Before Seen Photographs Shed Light on Mysterious Underground Network

The Tayos caves of Ecuador are a legendary vast natural underground network of caves spanning many kilometers, very little of which has been officially explored. The Tayos caves (Cueva de Los Tayos) reached worldwide attention in 1973 when Erich von Däniken released his bestselling and controversial book The Gold of the Gods, in which he claimed that Argentinian-Hungarian entrepreneur Juan Moricz discovered gold, unusual sculptures, and a library of metal tablets in a series of artificial tunnels within the caves. Tayos was also mentioned as the location of Father Crespi’s collection of mysterious golden artifacts, given to him by the indigenous people of Ecuador. The truth behind the Tayos caves has remained out-of-reach, so last month Ancient Origins carried out an expedition to the caves to see just what lay within this enigmatic subterranean world.
Written references to the Tayos caves go back as far as 1860, but it has been known to the indigenous Shuar people for much longer. The caves sit within Shuar territory and is one of the reasons why it has rarely been explored – the Shuar decide who is allowed access to their sacred land.
In 1976, the largest and most expensive exploration of Tayos cave was launched, led by Stan Hall, and involving over a hundred people, including British and Ecuadorian military personnel, expert cavers, as well as Neil Armstrong. Numerous archaeological items of ancient origin were recovered in the caves, but nothing that matched the description of the treasures of von Däniken’s book. The Shuar people stated they had investigated the wrong cave, and the location of the treasures was secret.

Inside Tayos cave. Some features, such as straight edges and geometric shapes, suggest human intervention.
Preparing for the expedition
Organizing an expedition to Tayos was difficult. Very little information is available about the caves, and the Ecuadorian government does not get involved since the caves lie within Shuar territory. The Shuar people are members of the Jivaroan peoples, who are Amazon tribes living between the upper mountains of the Andes, and the tropical rainforests and savannas of the Amazonian lowlands, in Ecuador extending to Peru. At least 40,000 Shuar people remain in Ecuador.
In planning our trip, we were presented with offers from a small number of tourist offices and ‘experts’ who said they could organize such a trip at a high price. We were disappointed that such organizations represented the Shuar people as ‘savages’ and warned that our lives would be in danger if we went without their guidance. Their advice could not have been further from the truth.

Day 1
Friday, 18 the September: Ignoring the advice of the above mentioned ‘experts’, a small team of us from Ancient Origins – Ioannis Syrigos, co-founder, and staff members Gary Manners and Christian Aguilar – started on our journey from Cuenca to North West Ecuador, near the city of Macas.
Arriving in Macas, a small town close to the Tayos caves, we contacted government officials to obtain the necessary permits to enter Shuar territory. To our surprise, we were told that none was required, apart from verbal permission from the indigenous owner of the land. This information was in opposition to the information provided by tourist offices.
We were put in touch with an indigenous Shuar woman, who was running a local restaurant in town.

She told us that her 7-year-old son, Miguel, would guide us one hour through the forest to one of the Shuar communities, where her father would help us with guidance in the Tayos caves. With the help of our young guide, we drove 4km down a path through the forest, before following Miguel on foot through the jungle until we reached the small Shuar community next to the river Pastaza, where he introduced us to his grandfather, who would guide us through the caves. When we arrived, the indigenous people living in the camp, consisting of about 10 adults and 10 children, warmly welcomed us. Miguel’s grandfather, Luis, the patriarch of the camp, invited us to stay in his little lodge for visitors. He would provide us with all the information and guidance we needed for the next 4 days. We also had the opportunity to interview Luis about the Tayos caves, a video will be released shortly.

The friendliness of the Shuar people and the local community was in stark contrast to the dire warnings given to us by tourist companies. The community provided us with freshly made local traditional food every day as well, as the famous Andean Chicha drink made from fermented maize.
We spent the first day discussing with Luis, who explained to us how we would proceed in the days to follow – one cave at a time!

Day 2
Saturday 19 the September: We started our day early with a local breakfast and then packed up our equipment and headed out to explore our first cave. The jungle is very thick, so finding the caves without a guide would have been a difficult task. Luis provided us with 3 guides – including him, to guide us through the caves. The first cave is hidden behind thick vegetation with a rather steep entrance.

Most of the tunnels in the cave were muddy and watery with some extremely narrow gaps made it difficult for all of us to enter. In one section of the cave, only one of our team members managed to squeeze through the gap.

After a few hours, in which we explored a few kilometers of cave tunnels, we return to the camp. We had a nice warm dinner and then headed to our lodge for discussions into the night. Luis explained to us about the legends and myths behind the caves, including the story of Father Crespi and how gold and artifacts indeed taken from the caves to be given to Father Crespi. While most accounts say that Father Crespi given the artifacts in gratitude for his work with orphaned children in Ecuador, Luis referred to Father Crespi as a ‘thief’, even if in reality he never set foot in Tayos. Luis said that helicopters came and carried gold from the caves back to Crespi, and he claimed that the gold in the central cathedral of Cuenca, was Crespi resided, is from the Tayos caves.

Day 3
Sunday 20 the September: We headed off to explore another entrance into the caves, where we would have to rappel our way down a 45-meter drop, through an entrance on the top of a hill. (Most of the entrances to Tayos caves involve the need to abseil down a large drop and this is another reason it is rarely explored).

After reaching the bottom, we took some new paths that our guides had not explored before. One of these paths was ‘prohibited’ because as Luis explained to us, they had discovered footprints there one day that had disappeared by the following day. The Shuar believed these footprints belonged to the spirits and that therefore they should not enter. They were, however, happy for us to enter, while they stayed behind. As it happened, the path was too narrow for all of us to proceed, so Gary went alone, crawling on his stomach through a gap until he reached a dead end. Nothing found, but there was a strange sound from an animal that was nowhere to be seen.

After hours of exploring more tunnels within the cave, we go back to the camp exhausted to conclude our third day.

Day 4
Monday 21 st September: This was our last day of exploring the caves and this time we headed to the river Pastaza, mentioned by Stan Hall in his book Tayos Gold as the reallocation of the metal library and the artifacts of Father Crespi. According to the book, the entrance is from the river and you have to dive underwater to find it.
Luis took us to one entrance that the military had investigated, which is close to Stan Hall’s description. We entered the cave system and began exploring. However, just 1km into the cave, the guides refused to go further due to the high level of water. Ioannis and Gary decided to move on and explore the rest of the cave. This took us another kilometer into the cave until we reached a section that blocked from rocks sliding into the tunnel. We could not go any further.
After exploring this last cave, we said our goodbyes to the Shuar community and headed back to Cuenca.

Concluding comments
Our impression was that much of our time spent at Tayos and with the Shuar community was a trust-building exercise. The Shuar exploited numerous times, so protecting their land and their history is of great importance. Our expedition was just a tiny taste of a vast and almost never-ending network, and we only scratched the surface. Fortunately, we built strong relationships with the Shuar, who have invited us back for further explorations. Our next expedition will be held within the next two months, following which, we are looking to open up further trips to Ancient Origins readers.

Underground tunnels and cities of South America and the mysterious glow above them

Underground labyrinths were visited by different researchers. These include complexes of natural and artificial voids in Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia, and Chile, on the Easter Islands, in Antarctica and in many other places.

The Spanish conquistador Francisco Pizarro, who conquered the lands of the Incas in the 30s of the 16th century, reported in his report to the Spanish king that he had found entrances to underground tunnels located in Huascaran (Peru), the sacred mountain of the Incas, at an altitude of 3.8 km above sea level. They covered with giant stone slabs. History does not say whether Pizarro could enter the tunnels, and what he saw there.

Spanish chronicler Cristobal de Molina, who arrived along with the conquistadors in South America, told about the legend of the indigenous Indian population about the omnipotent Father of humankind living in the underworld. After completing the act of creation of all things on Earth, God went into his world.

Legends of an extensive system of underground tunnels and cities under the Andes, inhabited by some mysterious creatures, are common among many peoples of South America. According to these legends, the underground kingdom reached through entrances located in the ancient cities of Sacsayhuaman in Peru and Tiahuanaco in Bolivia. The chronicler of Jesuit monks Agnelio Oliva spoke about the ancient nodular letter of the Incas, which said that the real Tiwanas was an underground city, much larger than its ground superstructures.

The legends about the vast dungeons in South America linked with the stories of peasants, travelers, and gold prospectors about the strange glow, called “la luz del dinero” or “the light of money”. This phenomenon, observed in the harsh and desert highlands of the Andes, in Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia, and even Mexico, nobody can be explained by science. Glow most often occurs at dusk. G. Wilkins tells the story of treasure hunters In his book “The Lost Cities of South America” that “one evening, when the sun only set in its ocean cradle, behind the inaccessible walls of mountain ranges, and the stars lit up in the deep blue of the sky, they saw a strange whitish or a pale green glow hovering over rocky ground”. At dusk or in the dark, these mysterious lights sometimes slid along the road like a snake. Sometimes they stood still, as if the columns of the ancient Inca temple of the Sun, or took the form of some tropical trees.

Historic Yuri Zubriziy, who observed this glow in 1971, wrote that the light limited by some invisible barriers as if it enclosed in a room of 7-8 thousand square meters. However, the light source itself was not visible.

In the legends of the Quechua Indians, it is said that such luminescence appears above the dungeons, in which the treasures are hidden. Mysterious hieroglyphs inform about their location, the “key” to the understanding of which is owned by only one descendant of the Inca in each generation.

According to Wilkins, in about 1844, an elderly Catholic priest called to confess the dying Quechua (a direct descendant of the Peruvian Inca). The Indian told him about the mystery of the labyrinths and amazing tunnels that belonged to times much more ancient than the Sun Emperors of the Incas.

The old priest did not keep the secret of confession and, under hypnosis, told about it to some Italian. He also added that around 1830, rumors of a mysterious tunnel full of treasures reached the ears of the Peruvian authorities, who sent scouts to find the hidden entrance. Scouts presented by scientists and archaeologists. Nevertheless, they returned to Lima and La Paz empty-handed.

Between 1848 and 1850 E. Blavatsky traveled to Peru. In Lima, she managed to meet with the very Italian, who forced the priest to violate the secret of confession. The Italian said that he had already visited where, as he believed, was the entrance to the ‘Aladdin’s cave’ and the mysterious labyrinth of ancient kings, which Herodotus saw on Merida Lake, on the western Nile.

Blavatsky wrote in her memoirs that you could find out the secret of the tunnels and find the entrance to them by guessing mystical signs that are invisible until the sun’s ray’s fall on them at a certain angle. One of the entrances to the tunnel is located not far from ancient Cusco, but it is “very well disguised”. This secret passage leads directly to the great dungeon, which stretches from Cusco to Lima, at a distance of about 600 km. Then the giant tunnel turns south and stretches for 1,500 km near Bolivia and Chile.

The ancient engineers created cleverly arranged doors consisting of two huge blocks of carved stone that could turn and close so tightly that there was not a slit in the place of the joint. One of these doors closes the entrance to the branch of the tunnel going to Lima, the other to the big tunnel from the Bolivian end. This tunnel now located in Chile passes through Taranaco and Cobijo. Then he turns to the east, passes under the mountains and is lost in the saline desert of Atacama.

Around 1850, when the port of Cobijo still belonged to Bolivia, her government sent in search of a mysterious tunnel of secret agents. However, this time they were unsuccessful.

Underground tunnels and treasures found by Juan Moritz

According to a statement by Argentine ethnographer and collector of antiquities Juan Moritz, certified by a notary in Guayaquil (Ecuador) on July 21, 1969, he discovered and mapped in the east of the province of Morona-Santiago in Ecuador hundreds of kilometers. In a statement, Moritz indicated that he had made this discovery while studying the folklore of the Ecuadorian tribes. Details of the discovery were set out in the books by Erich von Daniken: “The Gold of the Gods”. Aliens among us ‘and’ Sowing in space ‘and H. Häfling’ All wonders in one book ‘and later repeatedly retold by other authors.

Once Moritz, doing his usual research, accidentally stumbled upon the entrance to the underground galleries. It happened in June 1965, on the territory delineated by the cities of Galaviz – San Antonio – Yopi. Three years Moritz kept silence. Only in the spring of 1968, ‘after going through many kilometers of tunnels and collecting a significant collection of amazing objects,’ he decided to seek an audience with the President of Ecuador, Velasco Ibarra. The president did not accept him, and then Moritz wrote a statement asking him to appoint a special commission to check and evaluate his “such an important discovery”. In turn, he pledged to ‘inform the commission about the exact location of the tunnels he had studied so far and to provide her with detected objects.’ This statement, he assured the notary.

According to information provided by various authors, the entry into the system of the tunnels discovered by Moritz looked like a neat cutout in rocks the size of a granary gate. The descent along the system of vertical wells and horizontal platforms located one below the other end at a depth of 230 or 240 m. There were many entrances to tunnels of the rectangular cross-section of different widths with perfectly smooth and as if polished walls and ceilings. Side branches and ventilation shafts about 70 cm in diameter departed from the main tunnels at right angles. There were quite a few rooms the size of a concert hall. In the center of one of these halls with a height of 150 m, there was a table-type structure and seven thrones from an unknown material similar to plastic.

What is described further, more like a detective story than a scientific report? Largely due to the fact that von Daniken declares in his books that he was directly involved in the expedition to the underground tunnels of H. Moritz, his lawyer Dr. Peña and his assistant (Daniken) Franz Zeiner and saw everything he told about his books personally. Moritz claimed that he only brought them to the entrance to the dungeons to which E. von Daniken never went down.

Whoever is right is not changing the essence of the matter. Near the ‘throne’ place cast of gold figurines of fossil dinosaurs, elephants, crocodiles, lions, camels, bison, bears, monkeys, wolves, jaguars, and even crabs and snails. In the same room was a “library” of several thousand embossed metal plates 96×48 cm in size with signs engraved or stamped on them, which Juan Moritz considered “historical prophecies of a vanished civilization”. He paid special attention to them in his message to the president. Moritz allegedly even found a stone “amulet” measuring 11×6 cm with the image of a man standing on a globe.

He also found drawings under the ground, carved or pressed into the floor. One of these floor figures had a rectangular body and a round head. ‘It’ stood on a globe — a globe and held in its hands the moon and the sun. Another figure engraved in stone depicted a dinosaur.

In the surveyed tunnels and gold discs and plates with various patterns and symbols were found. Images of pyramids engraved next to kites flying in the sky engraved on hundreds of discovered plates.

In the future, Moritz began to deny the presence of many of his finds. In particular, the figures of a man standing on a globe.

Moritz’s discovery caused quite a stir, and the German magazines Spiegel and Stern conducted in 1972 and 1973 their investigations on this. It found out that von Daniken never went down to the underground galleries and halls, and most of what he wrote about them in his books is not true. Moritz himself investigated only a small part of the dungeons. He was also not sure that all the figures he discovered were made of gold. Nevertheless, the fact that underground tunnels exist, and that Moritz descended in them, it seemed true.

Director of the Archaeological Institute in Quito Hernan Crespo Toral called Juan Moritz a rogue and adventurer. He said that he would gladly accept fabulous metal books and gold animals to his museum if Moritz had brought them there. “But how can this“ discoverer ”deliver treasures that really do not exist?”

However, is it?

The fact that Moritz had never been in underground tunnels as if the absence of photographs of the treasures described by him testify. This assumption is supported by the fact that the American producer James Mobley offered him 500 thousand dollars for showing the entrance to the caves and a thousand dollars for each day of shooting the film in them – the amount requested by Moritz himself. Nevertheless, he still refused the offer.

Maybe Moritz managed to meet with the President of Ecuador and get information about the underground galleries and at the same time silence about them, a generous reward, much higher than the specified amount. Doesn’t this explain the inconsistency of his testimony and unwillingness to return to the dungeons? You see, the story knows many of such cases.

Other underground tunnels in South America and Mexico

Underground tunnel in the Los Toyos area

Mineralogical Scientist Evgeny Vorobyev told *** that in 1976 a joint Anglo-Ecuadorian expedition surveyed one of the underground tunnels in the region of Los Toyos, on the border of Peru and Ecuador. There, too, a room found where there was a table surrounded by chairs with backrests more than two meters high, made of unknown material. The other room was a long hall with a narrow passage in the middle. Shelves with ancient books, thick tomes — about 400 pages each — walked along its walls. Sheets of volumes of pure gold filled with the incomprehensible font.

Unfortunately, I did not meet other similar reports about this expedition, but I found articles in the Interesting Newspaper and on several Internet sites, which indicated that on August 3, 1976, the Ecuadorian-British expedition composed of Scottish scientists and travelers Stanley Hall, Stephen Coppens and familiar to us Juan Moritz went down to the cave Cueva de Los Toyos. In addition, it led by none other than Neil Armstrong, the first astronaut to set foot on the surface of the moon. The expedition discovered a burial cave with a sitting body, but it did not manage to reach the halls of the main depository of books.

Perhaps it was not the expedition to which Vorobyev referred. Although unlikely. The dates, the venue and the composition of the participants of the two expeditions too clearly coincide. Nevertheless, maybe the researchers decided not to make public their discoveries, and information about them leaked through some confidential sources that Sparrows could accidentally find out?

The underground tunnel at the Rio Sinju River

If the discovery of underground structures by Juan Moritz immediately caused rejection by most scientists, and the discovery of underground tunnels in the area of Los Toyos cannot be considered proven, then the existence of an underground tunnel more than 90 km long in the Rio Sinju river region seems to be confirmed by speleologists and archaeologists. However, t I do not dare to speak about it with complete confidence, because information about the discovery and this time given without giving many important details: the names of the head and members of the expedition, the exact place and time of the expedition, the names of the scientific institutes that took part in it.

In 1991, a group of Peruvian speleologists organized an expedition to the r. Riu Sinju. There, in the difficult jungle, there was a system of little-studied underground caves with a depth of up to 300 m.

In 1925, an expedition of the English Colonel Percy Fawcett disappeared in this area, which explored it for several years on the instructions of the English Royal Geographical Society. According to Fawcett, a wild tribe of fair-skinned people who lived in caves under the earth lived here.

Cavers managed to find the entrances to the caves and descend into them. At a depth of 70 m the road blocked by a huge stone slab. The surface of the plate, in contrast to the surrounding walls of the cave, was very smooth, which indicated its artificial origin. With the help of a winch, the slab managed to move. It turned out that it revolves around stone balls that act like door hinges.

Behind the slab, there was a long tunnel going down at an angle of 14º. Researchers lit it with spotlights. The floor of the underground corridor was laid out with small plates, fitted exactly to one another. On the surface of the plates along the walls, speleologists saw two hollowed out gutters. The wheels of a loaded cart, similar to those on which coal was taken from adits in mines, could roll along them. Each plate decorated with a carved image of a bird similar to a peacock.

In 1991, speleologists did not reach the end of the tunnel. However, reports of the discovery of a mysterious underground structure interested scientists from around the world. In 1995, an international expedition organized to continue its study. It was attended by speleologists, historians, and archaeologists from different countries. During the work, scientists found that the underground tunnel stretches for 90 kilometers and goes under the sea – at the end of it a saltwater cave was found, and the level of this “room” was 10 meters below sea level. It was not possible to figure out where the tunnel went further.

The members of the expedition concluded that the construction of such a structure required knowledge inaccessible to the inhabitants of ancient Peru. A confirmation of the earlier construction of the tunnel can serve as images on the plates of birds, resembling peacocks, not found in any South American nation, both ancient and modern.

Jorge Perez, a Peruvian researcher of ancient cultures of South America, suggested that the builders of Tiwanaku and other megalithic monuments could build a tunnel. Moreover, they, as I said before, built over 12 thousand years ago.

In 1998, another expedition to the underground caves was equipped. This time, the researchers were completely disappointed. There was a collapse in the caves and access to the entrance to the tunnel covered with a huge mass of stones.

The Underground tunnel in the area of Cusco

The university library of Cusco holds a report on the catastrophe that befell in 1952 a group of seven researchers from France and the United States. In the vicinity of the city, they found the entrance to the dungeon and went down there. Without planning to linger, the researchers took with them only five days of food … Of the seven participants in the expedition, only Frenchman Philip Lamontier came to the surface, and then 15 days later. He was exhausted, suffered from memory lapses and infected with bubonic plague. Lamontier said that his companions fell into a bottomless abyss.

The authorities, fearing the spread of the plague, laid the entrance to the dungeon with a reinforced concrete slab. The Frenchman died a few days later. After he was a corncob of pure gold, with which he returned from the ground. Now, this finds kept in the Museum of Archeology of Cusco.

Inca civilization researcher Dr. Raul Rios Centeno tried to repeat the route of the missing expedition. A group of six specialists entered the dungeon through a room under a tomb in one dilapidated temple, located a few kilometers from Cusco. They walked along a long, gradually narrowed corridor, resembling a ventilation pipe. Suddenly, the researchers noticed that the walls of the tunnel ceased to reflect infrared rays. With the help of a spectrograph (according to other information, a radio filter), they determined that they contain large quantities of aluminum. Scientists tried to take a sample, but the skin was so strong that no tool took it. In the meantime, the tunnel was getting narrower, and when its diameter (or height) reduced to 90 cm, the group had no choice but to turn back. Dr. Centeno not allowed to repeat further investigations, although he applied to the highest state institutions.

Chinkanasy

In South America, there are even more amazing and practically unexplored caves or tunnels connected by endless intricate passages – the so-called Chinkanas. Legends of the Hopi Indians say that human snakes live in their depths. By order of the authorities, all entrances to them tightly closed with bars: dozens of people have already disappeared without a trace in the Chinkanas. Some tried to penetrate the cave out of curiosity, others – in the hope of finding the treasures of the Incas. Few managed to get out of them, and even those seem damaged by reason, because, according to their stories, in the depths of the Earth they met with strange creatures resembling both humans and a snake.

Old mining in Chile

Vorobyov told *** about the amazing discovery made in Chile. In November 1972, at the invitation of the government of S. Allende, the Soviet comprehensive expedition arrived in this country with mining experts Nikolai Popov and Efim Chubarin. They had to find out the possibility of resuming copper mining in old mines.

Exploration began on a long-abandoned field, located 40 km from the city of Sichuan. Having cleared the entrance to the mine, Popov and Chubarin walked a few tens of meters and found a passage leading down at an angle of 30⁰ (according to other data, 10⁰). After about 80 m, they were in development, rich in copper veins, stretching down. The miners were amazed to see that they were already developing the most high-tech methods – the waste rock remained untouched, no landslides and debris.

The Underground civilization Nevada de Kachi?

Svetlana Anina and E. Vorobiev told *** that on May 24, 2003, researchers at the Base Chilean Research Institute of Biophysics (FICI), whose headquarters are in La Matanza (Argentina), Omar Hesse and Jorge Millstein faced with an unusual phenomenon. They recorded ‘traces of radioactive radiation, microwaves, electrical signals of a certain level and vibrations emanating from below, from under the ground.’ This took place on the Argentinean Andean stretch, stretching from La Poma to Calafate, near the Nevado de Cachi Mountain, at an altitude of 2.3 km above sea level.

The researchers concluded that the signals are likely to come from some machines or mechanisms that are deep underground. “Fluctuations clearly show that some activity is taking place several kilometers from the earth’s surface: alternating electric waves indicate the presence of a power source,” said Hesse. “It could mean the presence of engines there.”

To this, it should be added that the work zone not chosen by the institute by chance: the climber Antonio Zuleta pointed to this territory. On the four videotapes taken by him, he saw strange, fast-moving lights that “dived” into the ground at precisely this point. “We’ll have to come back here with more sensitive instruments and deep probes,” Millstein said. “Then we can get more accurate data.”

What happened next is unknown to me. However, judging by the available publications, this discovery did not make a strong impression on the FICI members: they knew well that Nevado de Cachi is one of the areas of maximum UFO activity that attracts researchers from all over the world. “For those of us who know that aircraft can easily penetrate the Earth, nothing new in the Andes is open, especially since there are already a lot of facts – from Ecuador to Mendoza,” said people from FICI.

Underground tunnels of Guatemala and Mexico

The Spanish writer Francisco Antonio Fuentes y Guzmán (1642–1690), who wrote an unpublished history of Guatemala at the end of the 17th century, spoke about the underground tunnels found by conquistadors in this country, which once inhabited by unknown and long-disappeared people. He wrote:

“A remarkable tunnel (dungeon), reinforced by a strong and solid cement, goes underground for nine leagues to the village of Theklan in Guatemala. This is proof of the power of the ancient kings and their vassals. ‘

In his book ‘Secrets of the Underworld’ (2006) A.I. Wojciechowski told about the mysterious cave of Sotano de las Golondrinas in Mexico. Its depth is more than a kilometer; its width is several hundred meters. This is a real abyss, the sheer walls of which are absolutely smooth and smooth. At the bottom of the cave, there is a maze of different rooms, transitions, and tunnels, diverging in different directions.

So this story not ended till now. Where is GOLD of Padre Crespi? Where is a GOLD cave? Where is GOLD of civilizations built tunnels? Maybe it is you who will answer these questions.
