Stories of underground cities and mysterious tunnels

You must admit that there is something mysterious and magical in caves and tunnels. Perhaps the darkness or the fact that mysterious tunnels lead into the very body of the Earth creates a special background of the mysticism of underground cities. They are invariably the subject of all adventure stories and exciting legends. Underground cities represent the unknown and relate to long-standing fears that live deep in the human subconscious.

Legends of underground cities, hidden secrets of our planet

Legends of underground cities, hidden secrets of our planet

There are people among us who claim to have direct knowledge or experience with these underground tunnels. They bring a lot of amazing statements: supposedly the underworld contains long-lost cities. These places are inhabited by developed civilizations – perhaps the descendants of the lost Atlantis. Others are alien home and base their flying saucers. There are those that are the basis for secret government facilities.

Governments, without a doubt, have top-secret military facilities deep in the mountains or hidden underground. And this is of course the least fantastic story about underground cities. At the same time, many stories go without photographs or any other facts, so decide for yourself how to relate to it. However, in any case, the legends are charming. Many legends of underground cities and mysterious tunnels come from the US territory of and here are some of them;

Mystery of the Grand Canyon

In the April 1909 edition of The Phoenix Gazette, an article was published titled Research in the Grand Canyon. According to the description, a man named G.E. Kinkaid during his expedition sponsored by the Smithsonian Institution in the Grand Canyon did amazing things. Among his findings are the following:

A giant chamber about 450 meters underground, from which dozens of passages lead “like wheel spokes”.
Several hundred rooms, some of which contain artifacts, such as weapons and copper instruments of this kind, which were never known in America.
A crypt containing mummies – all adult males wrapped in bark cloth.
A shrine with a kind of idol, like a Buddha, sitting cross-legged, with a lotus flower in each hand.
Stone tablets on which mysterious Egyptian hieroglyphs are carved.
The article also mentions the legend of the Hopi Indians, which states that their ancestors once lived in the underworld in the Grand Canyon.

Kramp Funeral Cave

In 1892, Frank Burns of the US Geological Survey reported that he had discovered strange coffins in Cramp Cave, Alabama. Each coffin was 3.5 meters long, 1.5 meters wide, and up to a meter deep. The lids were open on every empty coffin, as if waiting for their guests.

Samples were sent to the Smithsonian Institution for research. It was originally assumed that coffins could actually be simple troughs. However, alas, in the course of research, the institute somehow lost the artifacts.

California Underground Tunnel Network

In a fall 1985 issue of Search magazine, a senior but unnamed naval officer spoke about the opening of a huge network of tunnels beneath parts of the US west coast. He said that American nuclear submarines explored some of these tunnels. The military explored some accessible underground routes near the continental shelf and followed them inland for several hundred miles. Here are some of the highlights of this incredible discovery:

What is being voiced as a San Andreas fault is actually large cameras that are in the process of being destroyed.
The well-known US nuclear submarine got lost in one of the aisles, and was never heard of again. It must be said that two US nuclear submarines disappeared under mysterious circumstances – USS Thresher and USS Scorpion.
Some part of California actually “floats” across the ocean. When oil companies began pumping oil from under the city of Long Beach, it began to sink – it sank almost 10 meters before the pumping was stopped immediately.

Mysterious Tunnel World

A pair of California researchers discovered a round hole in the ground while searching for petroglyphs. They went down into the pit, which reached a horizontal corridor. A face was carved on one of the walls, from which water was pouring. Suddenly, water began to pour from other openings. Adventurers were forced to leave the tunnel. Later, both recalled that in this place they heard music.

In West Virginia, workers found several caves with strange hieroglyphics painted on the walls. According to them, they heard faint voices and something similar to mechanisms coming directly from behind the walls of the cave.

Two men looking for a guano bat (which is of some importance as fertilizer) at the foot of Mount Lassen, found a deep cave. They proceeded along the tunnel inward for a mile or two and noticed that the floor was smooth, as if it were used for the road.

In the end, they met three strange “people” who asked if they were “superficial people.” Then those who met drove them deeper into the cave on an aircraft with an electromagnetic drive. At the end of this strange walk, men were returned to the outside world of the planet.

Travelers Ferdinand Osendovsky and Nicholas Roerich argue that they discovered an underground society under Central Asia which they called agarta or agarti. They say that 20 million people live in it, and their civilization extends into all the underground passages. This extremely mysterious country gives life to highly spiritual people.

In another case, a caving group of 12, entered the ancient tunnel system in northern Arkansas and ran into the inhabitants of the underworld. While exploring the cave, researchers discovered a tunnel lit by greenish phosphorescence. No, they did not find underground cities, but they met a race of creatures 2.5 meters tall. Blue-skinned creatures with advanced technology, researchers said they are direct descendants of Noah!

Archaeologists have found artifacts under the melted ice of Antarctica

As the last unexplored wilderness in the world, Antarctica is shrouded in secrets that scientists and researchers are trying to solve. To date, it is known about the 14 most fascinating mysteries of the Great White Continent.

Underground lakes

It is hard to imagine anything under the thick layers of ice in Antarctica, but scientists have discovered several underground lakes.

Scientists believe that the lakes formed after the separation of Antarctica from Gondvanald, an ancient supercontinent. Lakes do not freeze due to ice pressure.

Deep lake

Deep Lake is an inland lake in East Antarctica that has fascinated scientists for years. The lake is 55 meters below sea level, and with increasing depth, the salinity of the water increases. Salt water is comparable to the Dead Sea and ten times more saline than the ocean. This means that the water does not freeze, despite the temperature reaching -20C at the deepest point.

Bloody waterfall

In the McMurdo Dry Valley, a bright crimson five-story waterfall spills from the Taylor Glacier into Lake Bonnie. It looks like a rush of blood from a wound in the ice, but scientists have recently discovered the cause of this mysterious phenomenon.

The water that feeds Bloody Falls was once a salt lake, which is now cut off from the atmosphere due to the formation of glaciers on top of the lake.

Antarctica is a barren, icy desert with very little rain, strong winds and the coldest temperatures on earth (the coldest recorded temperature was -89.4 ° C); yet it is also home to many unique wildlife. There are microbes, crustaceans, giant squids, transparent icefish, long-legged spiders the size of dinner plates, giant worms with shiny golden bristles and a large jaw with sharp teeth.

Ancient fossils and rainforests

Antarctica is an ancient land that has undergone some incredible transformations over millions of years. Before Antarctica became an icy desert after the ice age, it was actually a warm region with rainforests and possibly even civilizations. The theory arose from the discovery of a petrified tree, signs of tropical trees and leaf prints that show the existence of tropical forests in Antarctica. Scientists have also discovered a ton of fossils of marine animals, birds and Cretaceous dinosaurs.

Gamburtsev mountain range

Antarctica holds many secrets under its vast ice sheets – even a massive mountain range. Gamburtsev mountains are hidden under a layer of ice from two to four thousand kilometers thick. They stretch for 1200 kilometers and rise to 3000 meters, which is one third of the height of Everest.

Singing ice

The Ross Ice Shelf is the largest ice shelf in Antarctica. Its thickness is several hundred meters and covers an area of ​​more than 500,000 square kilometers – the size of France.

Scientists have recently discovered that Ross’s ice shelf sings an eerie melody caused by winds blowing through the snow dunes. Winds create surface vibrations and almost non-stop seismic tones.

Giant hole

In 2017, a hole the size of Ireland was discovered in Antarctica. Known as wormwood, this hole is not new – with the exception of a span of 78,000 square kilometers, it is the largest hole seen since the 1970s.

Mount Erebus

Mount Erebus is a natural wonder, with liquid magma and ancient lava lakes that boil for about 1.3 million years. It is the southernmost active volcano in the world and the second largest volcano of Antarctica, whose height reaches 3800 meters.

South ocean

The Southern Ocean was named the fifth ocean in the world in 2000. It is the fourth largest ocean in the world that surrounds the entire continent of Antarctica.

Dry McMurdo Valley

The thought of the desert usually conjures up images of hot sandy plains, but Antarctica is the largest desert in the world. It is incredibly dry and windy, with only 50 mm of precipitation per year, while 99% of the continent is covered with ice. Dry valleys have a climate similar to Mars, and scientists believe that this region may contain the secrets of life on other planets.

Antarctic mushrooms

Many microorganisms and extremophiles were found in Antarctica, including endemic species of fungi.

Ancient meteorites

Antarctica is a golden field for meteorites. Although meteorites can fall all over the earth, they are easier to find in Antarctica because cold and dry conditions retain rocky fragments.

In 2013, a group of Japanese and Belgian scientists discovered the largest meteorite found in East Antarctica in the past 25 years. Extraterrestrial stone weighed 18 kilograms. The team searched for meteorites for 40 days, finding 425 meteorites with a total weight of 75 kilograms. The discoveries included a piece of the asteroid West and a meteorite from Mars.

Aliens, Nazis and the lost city

Antarctica is a breeding ground for secrets, and over the years it has had its share of conspiracy theories. From elongated skulls and strange pyramids to alien spaceships, bizarre structures and giant stairs, many people believe that extraterrestrial life once lived in Antarctica (or still exists). The secret of Antarctica is kept deep beneath its surface, where no one has entered before. They say that the lost city of Atlantis is hidden under kilometers of ice.

It is possible that the civilization of Atlantis existed in Antarctica, but it remains to be proved that the continent is the site of the legendary lost city. It is also believed that the Nazis used underground Antarctica as a secret refuge, and some believe that Hitler fled here after the war. Hitler had a passion for occultism, and he was looking for something in Antarctica – the Germans built a station in Antarctica – but it was abandoned 70 years ago after the crew was poisoned by polar bear meat. The Great White Continent is the most obscure and inexplicable corner on Earth, and despite the dedicated efforts of scientists around the world, people may never know all its secrets.

The Found and Lost Atlantis Library

In 1965, on the territory of Ecuador, entrepreneur and ethnologist Juan Moricz, with the help of local Indians, discovered the oldest man-made underground communications system. According to him, he found in its halls a unique library of books, the sheets of which were thin metal plates covered with mysterious symbols. Journalists immediately called this find the Library of Atlantis.

Mysterious Metal Books

The story of this sensational discovery is very confusing, full of intrigue and tragic accidents. As a result, what could change the whole history of mankind turned out to be lost again – let’s hope not forever. It all started with the statement of the Argentine businessman Juan Moricz about the discovery in Ecuador of a huge ancient underground labyrinth, in which he discovered a mysterious library of books with metal pages.

According to Moricz, the underground tunnels discovered by him stretch for thousands of kilometers under the territories of three states at once – Argentina, Peru and Ecuador. Its main entrance is located in the inaccessible jungle region where the Santiago and Coangos rivers come together. The researcher noted that the tunnels are clearly of artificial origin, their walls are very smooth, literally polished, the ceilings are even and flat, as if covered with glaze. Passages from tunnels led the researcher to impressive underground halls. However, much more interesting than the underground communications was what Moricz discovered in them. So, according to the researcher, he found an ancient library of 20-kilogram books consisting of thin metal sheets measuring 96 by 48 cm.

On each of these pages some mysterious signs were engraved or stamped. According to Moricz, it was a library of an ancient extinct civilization.

Man Soaring Above The Earth

In addition to the library, Moricz found in the dungeons a large number of golden figures of various animals. There were elephants, bison, crocodiles, monkeys, jaguars. These figures were placed along the walls of halls and walkways. Interestingly, the floor of the tunnels was decorated with very interesting drawings. For example, one depicted a round Earth and a man hovering above it. It was clear that the representatives of the most ancient civilization clearly knew about the spherical shape of our planet.

It is worth recalling another floor drawing. Engraved on the floor of the tunnel, a fossil dinosaur was depicted! Let get reminded that, according to generally accepted data, dinosaurs became extinct 65 million years ago, however, this figure is dated at about 4-9 thousand BC. What can be said about real meetings between dinosaurs and the representatives of this ancient civilization?

Moricz also found a very mysterious outdoor figure. A strange creature with a rectangular body and a round head stood on a globe-ball and held the sun and moon. Another figure, nicknamed the “pilot”, was in a helmet with headphones. The suit of the “pilot” resembled a spacesuit, wires led to it, a ring was attached, and the figure’s hands in gloves. One of Moricz’s astounding finds resembled the Concord model of a supersonic passenger airliner.

Juan Moritz sent one such figurine of an “airplane” to the museum of the Colombian capital Bogota, and left another in a dungeon. Experts who studied the artifact cast in pure gold came to the conclusion that the figure is actually a model of an airplane. This was indicated by geometrically regular wings and a high vertical keel, which, as you know, are not found in birds.

Squeezed By The “Grip” Of His Secret

Newspapers reported that Juan Moricz, during negotiations with the President of Ecuador, allegedly negotiated for himself the right to full control over the find and reserved the rights to filming and photography.

It seems that after his discovery, Moricz stopped sleeping soundly. Perhaps he was afraid that someone more eminent would appropriate his discovery or that some gang would plunder the treasures of the dungeons, leaving him with nothing. That’s why he kept secret the entrance to the dungeons and pulled in every way its disclosure.

However, the discovery still required him to take some action, it was necessary to maintain a certain “buzz tension” around the find, otherwise the hope for major sponsors and the assistance of well-known scientific institutions would disappear. It was then that he decided to involve Erich von Daniken, who became very famous after the publication of his book Chariots of the Gods.

In 1972, Moricz and Daniken met in South America. Daniken claimed that it was then that Moritz showed him a secret entrance to the underground communications system in in the Cueva de los Tayos (Spanish for “Cave of the Oilbirds”).

In his writings, Moricz says:

“(This is . . . ) an archaeological reality that has so far been either entirely unknown or at least flat-out denied by mainstream scientists. The first expedition serves as the steppingstone for a second part of the expedition with which we intend to obtain proof that the discovered underground cave system is an area of activity of the progenitors of mankind.”

However, the discoverer did not open the hall with a mysterious library to Daniken, but only showed him an amazing maze.

After Moricz and Daniken emerged from the caves, Moricz took him to see Father Carlos Crespi, who possessed a large collection of similar metal plates that were also covered with mysterious engravings and glyphs, and that have remained undeciphered to this day. Some of the plates look ancient, finished very elaborately and engraved with glyphs. Others appear to be almost new and made in a simplistic style. Most of the plates consist of brass, zinc and copper. (A note about the metals: the American scientist, Professor Heather Lechtmann of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, proved in a study that the pre-Columbian people of South America were masters at coating metal with very thin layers of gold, in some cases, 0.5 to 2 micrometers thick.)

Part of Father Crespi’s collection now resides in the Museum of the Banco Central in Cuenca, Ecuador. The chief restorer there, José Maldonado, wrote:

“We know nothing about the origin of these objects, nor where they were found.”

Following the trail of this “adventure”, Erich von Daniken published the book “Gold of the Gods”. In it, he described the straight and smooth walls of the tunnels that shocked him so much. However, in an interview with the German publications Stern and Spiegel, Juan Moricz unexpectedly stated that he had never been in tunnels with Erich von Daniken. This statement dealt a blow to the reputation of the Swiss, which scholars had already taken hold of after his book Chariots of the Gods.

He was accused of fabricating facts proving the presence of aliens from outer space on the planet in antiquity. Daniken claimed that it was then that Moricz showed him a secret entrance to the underground communications system. However, the discoverer did not open the hall with a mysterious library to Daniken, but only showed him an amazing maze.

Later, Moritz nevertheless admitted that he showed Erich von Daniken an insignificant cave unrelated to the main network of dungeons. Most likely, at the very last moment, Moricz realized that the Swiss, already “promoted” in the media, could well push him as a pioneer into the background. That’s why he framed the famous researcher and writer.

Daniken’s attempts to somehow justify himself were unsuccessful at that time. In an interview with the Spiegel magazine on March 19, 1973, Moricz confirmed the reality of the tunnels that he had discovered and that a certain person had indicated them to him, whose name he refused to tell. Soon, a Scottish scientist and traveler Stanley Hall contacted Moricz. He invited him to organize a joint Ecuadorian-British expedition with the participation of the Ecuadorian army, biologists, botanists and various specialists.

Stanley believed that the expedition should be led by a very authoritative person, and offered to do this to astronaut Neil Armstrong, the first person to set foot on the moon. He accepted his offer, and on August 3, 1976 a group of researchers led by Armstrong went down into the tunnels. They managed to find a funerary cave with a sitting mummified body, and the biologists who joined the expedition discovered about four hundred unknown plants near the cave.

However, this all ended – they never got to the metal library. It seems that Juan Moricz was once again afraid that all the laurels of discovery would go to a different person, because Armstrong was much more authoritative than Daniken.

Fading Ray Of Hope

In 1991, Moricz died, but Hall managed to find a man who showed him the entrance to the tunnel. It was Petronio Jaramillo. He agreed to meet with Hall and stated that Moricz had shown Armstrong’s expedition a completely different cave. If you believe Petronio, then he got into the room with a library of metal books back in 1946 with his uncle, who was friends with the Shuar tribe, which guarded the entrance to the labyrinths. Jaramillo confirmed that he personally saw thousands of metal books on the shelves.

He visited the dungeons again and chose to take out 7 books from the shelves, but could not take pull them out, it was extremely hard. By the way, he said that in the second hall there were some quartz tablets, possibly also carriers of information. Petronio talked about the numerous statues of people and animals and the sealed golden doors leading, most likely, to the graves. Wandering through the dungeons, he went into the room where there was a large translucent sarcophagus of a huge gilded mummy. Hall agreed with Jaramillo to organize an expedition to research the dungeons. Alas, the conflict between Peru and Ecuador that arose in 1995 forced researchers to postpone it. Then, in Ecuador, the political regime changed, and a sharp aggravation of the situation in the country forced Hall to return to Europe.

In 1998 he received terrible news – Petronio was killed right next to his house. Although the attack looked like a street robbery, it cannot be ruled out that someone eliminated the “key” to discovering the Atlantis library.

Although Hall never knew the exact location from Petronio Jaramillo, after the death of Jaramillo in May 1998, Hall arranged a trip with Mario Petronio, the son of Jaramillo, during which they combined their knowledge. The journey was only aimed at reaching the “zero point”.

In May 2000, Hall returned.

He showed aerial maps, indicating a bend on the river and a cliff line that hides the entrance cave – the entrance to the system, which stretches for several miles. His assumption – a rock collapse (evidence of an ancient earthquake) opened an underground network. Hall visited this place and concluded that it fits perfectly with Jaramillo’s description.

Need for cooperation

The information that Jaramillo managed to share with Hall prompted the researcher to speculate where the entrance to the cave could be, because, as Jaramillo said, the entrance is hidden under river water, and to get into the maze, you need to swim through an underwater tunnel.

So, on January 17, 2005, Hall informed the Ecuadorian government about the location of the cave, which meets the description of Jaramillo, and which, he hoped will be the goal of the expedition, this place turned out to be the bend of the Pastaz river.

For anyone who is interested, the coordinates are: – 77 ° 47’34 ′ west longitude and 1 ° 56’00 ′ south latitude.

Hall thinked it would take decades or a shift in worldview before people can work together for a common purpose. He argued that the 1976 expedition took place only because the military regime was in power; “The democratic bureaucracy will flood the expedition before at least one marshy river meets on the way.”

All that is required is a sense of cooperation and openness. Too many people have tried to use the library as evidence of their own theory of an alien coming, all-conquering Hungarians or the Hall of Records. Perhaps that is why these missions were doomed. Maybe we should let the library speak for itself. Answers to questions regarding who built it, where they came from, etc. we can find inside. After all, is it a library or not?

To this day, dozens of enthusiasts and treasure hunters are engaged in its searches, but so far without success.

The mystery of strange sounds coming from the sky over Anchorage, Alaska

Recently, many Anchorage residents have heard a strange noise in the early morning hours. A loud noise comes in a distant hum, gets louder, and then disappears. 

Anchorage is the largest city in Alaska, located in the south central part of the state on the shores of Cook Bay.

People many kilometers from each other report that a strange sound abruptly wakes them, sometimes one or even several times for several hours. But no one knows what exactly causes this mysterious metal moan.

The last time it was heard was around 5 a.m. Monday. This signal woke residents from the city center to West Anchorage.

It has been described as creepy, symphonic and also sporadic, sounding for about 20 seconds and then disappearing. This sound is internally loud. You feel this sound.

It’s almost like a foghorn, and screeching metal on metal. It sounds like a submarine scraping the bottom of a pool or something,

Another eyewitness describes this rumble as an “underwater moan.”
