    After a gourmet picnic lunch (included) we continue our excursion to Ongamira Valley. Healing energy points, sightings of strange lights linked to extraterrestrial activity and ancient tales of indigenous tribes make Ongamira one of Argentina’s most mysterious valleys. Though spiritual seekers from around the world flock to this enchanting spot in the north of Córdoba’s Sierras Chicas, 25km from Capilla del Monte, it remains steeped in secrecy. Lack of cell-phone coverage adds to the otherworldly mystique. Dotted with red sandstone formations and verdant green pastures where horses roam free, the valley – named after chief Onga – was once home to Comechingones, an indigenous tribe who lived here about 200 BC and used grottos carved out of sandstone as homes and ritual sites.
