Sometimes you strike oil, other times you strike “crazy”. Nobody knows this better than the villagers of Bugarach. With a population of around 200 people, this quaint little commune wouldn’t be in the spotlight too often if it wasn’t for its close proximity to the Pic de Bugarach. The Pic de Bugarach is the highest summit in the Corbieres mountains, which is not that impressive given that the summit is not even the highest point in France. But what is truly extraordinary, is that the Pic de Bugarach is a genuine UFO garage. Yes, somewhere in the caverns of the mountain lies a dormant UFO, housing alien beings waiting to leave the earth on December 21, 2012 with a select few humans escaping the end of the world.
Many believers have already begun checking out the scene, pushing the number of tourists visiting the area to an alarming rate. The arrival of these tourists has become such an issue that the mayor of Bugarach has threatened to call in the army.
While the site of 200 terrified Bugarachans trying to defend themselves against an onslaught of 10,000 pony-tailed tourists dressed all in white may seem funny to you (and everyone else), the mayor assures us that it’s no laughing matter.
If you’re going to try and ride out the end of existence at Bugarach, you won’t be alone. Because many believers have already started making arrangements you should be able to find shelter at somebody’s yurt or makeshift hut. When they question you if it’s really necessary for you to be eating all their food so fast, tell them they’re not being loving and spiritual enough. You’ll have no trouble climbing the mountain if you take the gently sloping “voie de la fenêtre” route. When summiting the Pic de Bugarach, don’t be surprised if you run into a ceremony of some kind. The mountain holds spiritual meaning to various esoteric groups, so be prepared to see things you’ve never seen before…man.
