Bolivia’s Underground


Location: Sorata Bolivia
Functions: Unknown
Levels: Unknown
Tunnels to: Unknown
Notes:  A French Jesuit priest tells of his exploration of the San Pedro cave on Mt. Illampu, near Lake Titicaca. Entered via a crawlspace and opening out into a vast underground lake, the priest claimed to have rowed a small boat for hours until the cavern narrowed and gave way to a trail barred by an enormous gate of wrought iron with all of the characteristics of 17th century Spanish ironwork. He could not penetrate beyond the barrier so he turned back.

Notes:  “In March, 1954, a French Jesuit priest in Sorata, Bolivia, told a strange story of an exploring trip he had made in the cavern of San Pedro, on 20,000 foot Mount Illampu of the Andes chain (just east of Lake Titicaca).     “The cavern must be entered on all fours through a narrow passage which widens after a few yards and leads into an immense cavern filled with stalagmites and stalactites. At one end of the cavern is a subterranean lake.    “The French priest claimed to be the first person to cross to the far end of the lake. After several hours of rowing a small boat by artificial light, he related, the cave narrowed and gave way to a trail barred by an enormous gate of wrought iron. The grille, he said, bore all the characteristics of 17th Century Spanish ironwork.    “The priest tried unsuccessfully to break through the barrier. He was eager to see what lay beyond, but he had to return to Sorata without solving the mystery.”
