It is located in Capilla del Monte, Valle de Punilla. Also called Cerro Macho (Male Hill), Cerro de los Loros (Hill of the Parrots), The Comechingones' Hill. . . Enigmatic, natural, energetic and mysterious, the highest hill in the mountain range of the Sierras Chicas of Córdoba rises to 1979 meters above sea level. The primitive inhabitants of the different tribes that lived in these latitudes, at the foot of the magic hill were and will always be the universal witnesses of the passage of time.
A young Indian named Uritorco, (meaning "Male Hill" in Quichua), fell in love with the beautiful daughter of a sorcerer, who became an evil persecutor of lovers, cursing and hindering their love. They fled, harassed by the black demon of death, until they were overtaken by the "Uturunco", and they (both) were transformed, him into the majestic and imposing Hill. and her into a clear water of the Calabalumba River.

Very good experience. I would have liked them to give us a certificate of experience to have as a souvenir since it is a very nice journey. For people who are still thinking of going up, try not to waste, respect nature. Thanks to the guides who knew us to take and advise of the cares at night. They explained everything about the history of uUritorco, constellations, and the most spectacular thing was arriving just to see the sun rise. Thank you very much.
Excellent experience. .... very sacrificial but it was undoubtedly worth it .... peace .... meeting so much beauty is priceless ... they treated me excellent ... I was the last one to go down I could not anymore and the guide that is in the fifth station did not leave the place until we were down ... a terrible patience .... applause.
Live your dream!!! to the four guides who knew how to take us and guide and advise on the care of climbing Uritorco Hill at night. Beautiful view from the top and from the whole trip. It is an invaluable, renewing, strengthening and why not mystical journey. It is a memory for a lifetime. Challenge Uritorco ... unique and incomparable. Every minute climbing is worth it. Thank you very much ..
