End of days? ... cloud shrouds the mysterious Pic de Bugarach in south-west France
THE Sun has had a close encounter with a mysterious mountain which doom-mongers believe is their only hope when the world ends in 18 days time.
They think the eerie peak conceals a spaceship “garage” manned by extra-terrestrial beings.
Cult members pray the aliens will emerge to pluck them to safety in their craft when — according to the calendar of the ancient Maya civilisation of Central America — Armageddon comes on December 21.
We saw how hippies and New Age oddballs have thrown up makeshift camps in the shadow of the 4,040ft cloud-shrouded summit of the Pic de Bugarach in south-western France.
The mountain, with a network of deep caves, is thought to have inspired the Steven Spielberg movie Close Encounters Of The Third Kind and the classic novel Journey To The Centre Of The Earth.
David, 30, who quit his telecoms job in the French city of Tours to live in a bus in a forest near Bugarach, told The Sun: “There are serious things going on here — I want to know what these objects are.
“These things exist and people have the right to know.”
David, who did not reveal his surname, was not fully convinced that the world will end on December 21 but said: “I do think the capitalist system is going to collapse then.”
Street artist and local children’s co-ordinator Alain Didier insisted he had seen UFOs.
The castle was built in the 16th and 17th centuries
As I write this post I realize that it will be already obsolete in 3 months, that it, if we – the earth inhabitants – are going to survive the fateful date of December 21, 1012.
Thousands of people have flocked to Bugarach, a small village in southern France to await doomsday. New Agers believe that a mountain, Pic de Bugarach, houses alien spaceships and that the UFOs will emerge on December 21 to whisk them away to a new spiritual world. This “alien garage” has attracted New Agers since the 60s with rumors of mystical powers and special magnetic waves.
Pic de Bugarach is 1230 meters high and is the tallest mountain in the Corbieres range. It is thought to have inspired Jules Verne’s Journey to the Center of the Earth and Steven Spielberg’s Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
For now, the village is dealing with an incredible influx of tourists climbing naked to the top and holding strange worship services.
Will things return to normal on December 22, or will the non-believers be the fools?
Amazing footage of an UFO over the mountain Pic de Bugarach in France, March 28, 2012. A German hiker and a Spanish Mountain Group captured this video of this UFO / OVNI on top of the mountain. Do you really think there are Aliens in that mountain?? Hmm??
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.
Find the Alien Garage at the Pic de Bugarach :
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.
Aude, France - A camper van convoy heading south to the apocalyptic 2012 town of Bugarach is threatening to sue UK tour operators HippyWheels amid a gruelling three day experience of local extreme plumbing.
Treacherous wintry conditions saw the close-down of all tourist facilities sending 40 Yuletide travellers packed inside five souped-up Airstreams into unchartered rural territory.
The pilgrimage was to have arrived in the Bugarach UFO mothership base on Russian Christmas Day 7 January in preparation for the first of the year's full moon ceremonies.
But it ended up holed up in a dilapidated former campsite just south of Rennes-Les-Bains on the D14.
A fiendish configuration of mountains and dense forestry sees the ancient beauty spot untrammeled by wi-fi, cell phone signals or any form of organised electricity - something that the HippyWheels Winter 2011-12 catalogue failed to point out in its blurb.
Then late this evening a faint signal via a combination of carrier pigeon, morse code, semaphore and G-1 managed to transmit an SOS from stranded travelers to the Pyrenean mountain site.
Their plight chiefly concerns primitive conditions after onboard portaloos all froze up and/or caved in under unrelenting pressure during the stranding.
A diary entry retrieved from traveling tour guide Miss Sky Lotusblossom advises that 'at zero degrees on an ass-freezing January night the (only) open plan outdoor composting lav enjoys a panoramic 360-degree view of surrounding countryside and is the most sophisticated sanitation facility for 30 miles.'
Bugarach has become the epicenter of a worldwide apocalyptic movement claiming special sanctuary for all who shelter within a one mile radius of its extraordinary peak.
Last year its Mayor Jean-Pierre Delord threatened to call in the army if the influx of wacky-baccy Mayan 2012 apocalypse travelers continued to swamp the town's otherwise peaceful life.
Tales of how the late French President François Mitterrand had once been curiously 'heliported' on to the Bugarach outcrop's peak, of some mystery digs conducted by the Nazis and later Mossad have all culminated in creating the world's biggest magnet for Armageddon nutz.
The next scheduled UFO flypast near the Arc de Triomphe is this Friday the 13th of January.
A mayor in France frustrated and asked for military assistance to repel the UFO hunters who kept coming into its territory PICTURESQUE BUGARACH.
However, in recent months, settlers disturbed the peace of the residents who believe the foot of the mountain Pic de Bugarach, whose height 4,000 feet, is a hive of aliens.
Pic de Bugarach...is there a 2012 story in this area of France ???
What does Bugarach in France have to do with 2012, armageddon, the end of the world, or prophecy and predictions of the apocalypse ?
In a series of posts on 2012 prediction review over the next weeks we look into this small French community hoping to find out how Bugarach has become a player in the 2012 phenomena.
We hope to answer how UFO's and religious sectarian cults meld Bugarach to the end of times....somehow.
We hope to discover some interesting facts about locals of this small France community and facts about expats and hippies who have found interest in the Pic de Bugarach which is an elevation in the Pyrenees Mountains.
We hope to identify who the cultists are who claim that this area of France is the safe haven that will carry them through 2012 alive.
We hope to discover how Atlantis and Lemuria, the lost continents of long ago eras, come to play a role in the growing relation between Bugarach and 2012.
We hope to discover how more down to earth people who believe these legends and religious convictions are a dangerous proposition that could lead to the death of followers are dealing with the relationship between 2012 and the small France community of Bugarach.
Where is Bugarach and the Pic de Bugarach ?
The image below may be a beginning for the reader to follow up on.....
Future posts on Bugarach on 2012 predictions review may also serve to answer some of your questions on why suddenly this area of France is making 2012 news.
The mayor of Bugarach, Jean-Pierre Delord stands on the outskirts of the village
The Telegraph :
The mayor of a picturesque French village has threatened to call in the army to seal it off from a tide of New Age fanatics and UFO watchers, who are convinced it is the only place on Earth to be spared Armageddon in 2012.
By Henry Samuel, Paris 5:00PM GMT 21 Dec 2010
"If tomorrow 10,000 people turn up, as a village of 200 people we will not be able to cope. I have informed the regional authorities of our concerns and want the army to be at hand if necessary come December 2012."
Bugarach mayor Jean-Pierre Delord with a UFO postcard
THE Lonely Planet guide to the Languedoc-Roussillon region of the south of France makes no mention of Bugarach.
It suggests a driving route from Carcassonne to Perpignan that passes through some spectacular gorge scenery and takes you within a few miles of the place. But neither the village itself nor the striking mountain above it rate a name-check.
The authorities admit they are on red alert – or what passes for it in the sleepy Corbières mountains, amid rumours that crazed cultists might try to organise a mass suicide ritual.
Members of a New Age cult believe aliens hiding inside a mountain in France will save them from the December 21, 2012 Mayan apocalypse.
Hippies? I thought they died out in the 1970s, either by cleaning up their act and going mainstream or by ODing on bad drugs.
Amazing video! Two German Hikers caught several UFOs on camera while hiking and Camping in the mountains of Southern France near Bugarach - Pic de Bugarach - on April 01, 2012. This is the first time you can see the white and fast flying UFO in close up (see other similar UFO sightings on March 13, 2012 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OocKHsaFDEk).
The ” Bug ” , as the locals call it, has not finished to attract attention. It is called “sacred mountain” . They say it emanates a unique energy, powerful and unifying. It would be one of the “chakras” of “Mother Earth” , the “vibratory rate” would rise each year more. It is also said that he would host an underground base for UFOs. Humans improvising “mediums” claim to have made ??contact with aliens who have invested (not us, too bad). Finally, some argue that it would be one of the few places where land men would survive the end of the world, that predicted by the Mayan calendar, which ends December 21, 2012.
In short, simply type ” Bugarach ” on a search engine to discover the esoteric intense activity prompted by the highest peak in the Corbières. Culminating at 1231 m, the Bug and crystallizes all the fantasies. Already in the spring solstice, March 21, hikers asked us intrigued in their path: “Did you notice something strange?” . The summer solstice also attracts its share of strange animals and new age . “Marches in conscience” , “walking initiation” , initiatives bloom … for those who can afford it.
The attraction of Pic is growing, to the dismay of the mayor of Bugarach and many people who fear they will be able to control the influx of visitors in December 2012. Rommie, owner of the charming cottages of the Presbytery Sander with her ??husband, unwilling to offend anyone. “The majority of clients come to nature, to the Cathar castles. From time to time, some come for energy, for Bugarach. I like to go upstairs to the beautiful view. But on the energy, I do not know ” .
For the first riddle, the answer is simple: by plate tectonics, limestone strata older than 135 million years have arisen over training between 15 million years, reversing the order geological layers. Otherwise, it is assumed that the geographical position of the peak currents catalyzed mystical already at work in the region.
Which indeed has not dreamed of treasure Saunière, the priest mysteriously enriched after having begun work in his church in Rennes-le-Château, a few miles from there? (To visit absolutely!) Who has not left wandering imagination to follow the quest of the last Cathars, the perfect and ideal refuge on windy peaks of the Corbieres? ( surveying the ruined castles in high winds is a unique experience!)
No need yet esoteric guide to access the apex, which is worth a look for even more pragmatic. A card or phone call to the House of Nature will do. The route taken by most of the neck of Linas, 6 km from Bugarach. In less than two hours, you are now at the top, watching the Pyrénées Mountains and the Mediterranean Sea. The track called “the window” sneaks near a hole in the rock. More air, accessible to good walkers, it takes two hours from the cascade of Mathieux. The love walk the entire loop to carry out from the village. Allow six to seven hours, including breaks. The opportunity for a nice walk between heaven and earth.
I would like to know your opinion on this subject it has been said that it is the only place that will survive in December 2012. It has been said that in December 2012 the mountain will open and a space ship which has been buried for thousands of years will come out to save the planet. There has always been a lot of UFO activity in this area and a lot of organisations have been investigating here from the French secret service the Vatican and even the Mossad makes you wonder if they know something we dont. I live a few KMs away from Bugarach I have seen a UFO whilst staying the night on the mountain Not to mention the 15 or more UFOs I have seen in 2011 , 3 captured on film by accident whilst I was filming a French military plane flying over my house. There is something very special about this area there has been sightings in the 1970s of a ufo stationary in a village about 100 metres off the ground and about 300 metres in length .
Another one landed about a 1Km from the first sighting this one landed and left a visible mark on the ground that stayed for over for over 20 years .
If anyone else has more information on this subject please let me know...............

BUGARACH, FRANCE - NOVEMBER 24: The mayor of Bugarach, Jean Pierre Delord, poses with a postcard showing 'Ufo' in front of the village.
Some are claiming the village of Bugarach will be the only surviving settlement following a devastating apocalypse in December 2012, on November 24, 2011 in Bugarach, France. Although free publicity has boosted the housing market in the village, the Mayor is concerned about the worldwide publicity and the increased volume of people it might attract to the village and it's mountain, Pic de Bugarach.
CNN has just reported 2012 Aliens are said to be residing Inside a Bugarach France Mountain. Bugarach has a population 189. The claim is ancient lost civilizations of Lemuria & Atlantis are from here. At times UFOs fill the sky above this area. This local mountain allegedly hides a gateway to aliens who sail aquatic able spaceships on a vast interior mountain lake.
When a north breeze dissipates a haze upon tip of a Corbières, emerges, stately as well as secret, a impiety of Bugarach. The crawl poise a vegetable initial riddle: because do we verbalise of a “inverted plateau “? And even when a object luminous radiance full flanks of limestone, an aura of poser still hangs in a blue sky of a Aude.
“ Bug ” , such as internal call it, has not accomplished sketch attention. It is called “sacred mountain” . They contend it emanates a singular energy, absolute as well as unifying. It would be a single of “chakras” a “Mother Earth” , that “vibratory rate” volume some-more any year. They additionally contend it would residence an subterraneous bottom for UFOs. Humans improvising “mediums” explain to have come in to hit with a aliens who have invested (not us, shame). Finally, a little disagree that it would be a single of a integrate of places where land group would tarry a finish of a world, that likely by a Mayan calendar, that ends Dec 21, 2012.
short, simply sort “ Bugarach ” upon a poke engine to find a enigmatic heated wake up stirred by a tip rise in a Corbières. Culminating during 1231 m, a Bug as well as crystallizes all fantasies. Already in a open solstice, Mar 21, hikers intrigued asked us in their path: “Did we notice something strange?” . The summer solstice additionally attracts a share of extraordinary as well as fauna brand new age . “Marches in conscience” , “walking initiation” , initiatives freshness … for those who can means it.
he captivate of Pic is growing, to a discomfit of a mayor of Bugarach as well as many residents, who fright not being means to carry out a liquid of visitors in Dec 2012. Rommie, owners of a desirable cottages of a Presbytery with her husband, Sander, does provoke anyone. “Most business come to nature, to a Cathar castles. From time to time, a little come for energy, for Bugarach. we similar to starting up for a great view. But about energy, we do not know “.
a initial riddle, a answer is simple: by image tectonics, limestone strata comparison than 135 million years have arisen over precision in in between fifteen million years, reversing a sequence of a geological layers. Otherwise, it is insincere that a geographical upon all sides of a rise has catalyzed a visionary currents already during work in a area.
Who has not dreamed, in fact, a value of a Abbé Saunière, a clergyman mysteriously enriched after starting work in his church in Rennes-le-Château, a integrate of miles from there? (To visit!) Who did not let his aptitude ramble to follow a query of a final Cathars, a preferred as well as undiluted retreat upon a tops of breezy Corbières? (Surveying a busted castles in tall winds is a singular experience!)
At a tip of a peak. RICHARD DAVID
No need nonetheless
OR STAY (...)
The winding banks of the Aude and the sparsely populated countryside that surround its headwaters in the Haut Raze would have offered ample shelter for the Cathars and it is said their faith survived in secret for long years amidst its wild hills and shadowy valleys, even unto the present day. Over the course of the centuries a series of bizarre and fantastical rumors began to accrue about the region and the brooding cone of Mount Bugarach, the dormant volcano that dominates the densely wooded landscape, standing sentinel over Galamus Gorge and the gateway to the Corbieres.
The labyrinthine limestone caverns and smoldering internal fires of the oddly shaped mountain, a have fuelled both the hot springs of Rennes les Bains and the imaginations of countless visitors over the years including the science fiction writer Jules Verne who is said to have holidayed on the volcano's flanks. The celebrated author makes several veiled references to the area in his work, ranging from the subterranean voyages of Journey to the Centre of the Earth and The Black Indies to the alchemical chicanery of Carpathian Castle. The mountain, also known locally as the Pech de Thauze or the 'Crossroads of the Four Winds' provides both the name of one of the lead characters, the flamboyant Captain Bugarach, in Verne's all but unreadable maritime opus Clovis Dardentor and the inspiration for the 'eagle's nest' – the home of Robur the deranged aeronaut in Master of the World.
Over the course of the 20th century the tales of faery's, will o' the whisps’ and woodland elementals gave way to phantom airship sightings and common or garden UFOs. During the late eighties the region was considered a prominent 'window area' and a 24 hour 'skywatch' was established on Laval Dieu, the jagged spine of rocks facing the slumbering volcano. When I first visited the area in the early nineties I was introduced to the occupant of an isolated farmhouse near the headwaters of the River Sals, a wild eyed individual named Jean de Rigney who had been convinced the mountain harboured an underground UFO base and had produced countless fuzzy recordings of what he insisted were extraterrestrials moving about beneath his floorboards. More recently this tendency to blur the lines between ancient history, popular mythology and outright science fiction has been given added impetus by the work of French pseudo historian Michel Lamy who suggests that not only does Mount Bugarach conceal an entrance to the hollow earth and the lost kingdom of Agartha but that Esclarmonde d'Alion and her immortal cohorts are related to Vlad Dracule, the bloodsucking Count of Carpathia and the book they guard, the mythic 'Book of the Seven Seals' is the real life inspiration for American fantasy author H.P.Lovecraft's equally mythical 'Necronomicon’. All of which would be frankly laughable were it not for the unsettling fact that certain elements of these claims actually check out.
Samples of saline water drawn from the stream beside Jean de Rigney's house proved on further analysis to contain unusually high levels of radiation and references to 'earth lights' and hidden underground passageways extend back to well before the 20th century UFO flap. A close reading of Lamy's text indicates that he is cross referencing not so much the work of Lovectraft himself but the George Hay / Colin Wilson hoax Necronomicon first issued in 1978. The provenance of the so-called 'Hay Necronomicon' has been widely discredited, not the least by Colin Wilson himself who admitted to perpetrating the hoax in an article entitled "The Necronomicon, the Origin of a Spoof", which first appeared in Crypt of Cthulhu and was later reprinted in Black Forbidden Things", edited by Lovecraft scholar and enthusiast Robert Price. What Wilson fails to point out is that his 'spoof' seems to have been lifted wholesale from the work of French occultist Eliphas Levi who in turn was drawing upon some of the cornerstone texts of the European esoteric tradition. Certain aspects of the central ritual outlined in the 'Hay Necronomicon' as a method of 'opening the gates' so that the 'Great Old Ones' might return to Earth and complete the 'clearing off' of the human race correspond a little too closely for comfort with the local mythology of the Haut Razes – not the least of these being the 'Crossroads of the Four Winds' itself – the 'Gate of the Winter Wind', 'The Gate of the Summer Wind', 'The Gate of the Rushing Torrents' and 'The Gate of the Whirling Air' closely linked to the four cardinal points and that confounding cabbalistic puzzle box commonly known as the 'Cube of Space'.
It was not until the spring of 2008 that I had the opportunity to return to the area with fellow esoteric scholar and long term Shadow Theatre irregular Miss Scarlett to check out some of the increasingly wild and woolly claims first hand...
Testimony of Scarlett Amaris – Haut Razes - March 2008.
Our very strange journey began from this single phrase, “We might also compare the book closed by the seven seals of the Apocalypse, depicted in the church of Bugarach next to the Grail chalice, to that secret book called the Book of Seals, which was solemnly opened on the Cathar feast day of Bema.“ The phrase appears in a new translation of The Secret Message of Jules Verne by Michel Lamy, which we had picked up the day before in the bookstore in Rennes-le-Chateau. Considering how close it was to Easter Sunday, which was supposedly around the Cathar holy day of Bema, we decided to take a quick trip and have a look for ourselves.
The village of Bugarach is very small, and lies within the view of the majestic volcano that has been host to so many legends, everything from UFO’s in the 80’s, to death by 'inexplicable dehydration', and instances of people disappearing only to return with their hair bleached completely blond. We quickly found the church, which was actually open. Stepping inside, the first thing that we noticed was the overwhelming scent of laurel, a well known symbol of the resurgent Cathar faith, which had been reverently laid out on all the various altars. There was only one depiction of Christ in the church which seemed to be dedicated to Mary, or more likely Stella Maris, our lady of the seas. The presence that it gave off was overwhelmingly feminine. We walked straight up to the end altar, which dominated the far side of the building. To our complete surprise a plaque of the grail cup did indeed hang over each door on either side of the altar and next to that, by a couple of stained glass windows in which the faces had been strategically whitened out, were two more plaques portraying the lamb resting on the book of the seven seals. We couldn’t help but notice how the mountain illustrated in the background of the plaque bore more than a slight resemblance to Bugarach, itself. We tried the doors, and had a go at rummaging around the altar, but found nothing else open or hidden in that area
