The Underground Atlantis

Underground Atlantis: Mystical Agartha Built By Atlanteans?

Many large ancient stone structures around the world are said to have been built by the Atlanteans. These ancient people also reportedly created extensive underground Atlantis tunnels as safe places from natural disasters and potential threats from outer space.

At least that is what ufologist William Francis Brinsley Le Poer Trench (1911-1995), 8th Earl of Clancarty, 7th Marquess of Heusden, believed, who in 1974 wrote the book The Secret of the Ages: UFOs from inside the Earth, elaborating on this and others. topics related to the Hollow Earth hypothesis.

To begin with, in his book Le Poer Trench, he cites the famous Erich von Däniken and his Gold of the Gods to refer to “a gigantic system of tunnels or underground Atlantis, thousands of miles long” that extends beneath Ecuador and Peru. This system of interconnected caves and tunnels were discovered by Juan Moricz in 1965.

Von Däniken related that a tunnel led to a large hall where there were stone and metal objects, including statues of many types of animals made of solid gold. Additionally, there was a metal library consisting of metal plates (sheets) with writing in an unknown language, which Moricz believed contained a history of humanity and details about a long-gone civilization.

According to the cited author, “the tunnels beneath Ecuador and Peru have walls that are smooth and often appear to be polished,” which would suggest that they had not been cut with rudimentary tools, but with much more sophisticated means. In the words of Von Daniken:

«…If the drill collided with exceptionally hard geological strata, these could be destroyed with a few well-aimed shots from the weapon. The armored thermal drill would then attack the resulting blocks and heat the mass of debris to a liquid state. As soon as the liquid rock cooled, it would form a diamond-hard glaze. “The tunnel system would be safe from water infiltration and supports for the camera would be superfluous.”

The Underground Atlantis and Shelters for War

Towards the end of Gold of the Gods, the Swiss author proposed a very interesting theory about a specific reason why ancient civilizations such as the Atlanteans—direct descendants of ancient astronauts —built the tunnels. This is quite apart from the dangers of seismic activity which Le Poer Trench himself also mentions as a threat.

Von Däniken suggests that in ancient times a cosmic battle took place between humans or Ancient Alien civilisations. The losers escaped in a spaceship—although the count credits them with more than one spaceship—and took refuge on Earth, where they were forced to wear “gas masks” to withstand and adapt to the new atmosphere. hence the rock art that represents beings with “helmets” and “respiratory devices” -.

The author then states that these fugitives, equipped with all the technological advances, “dive deep into the earth and made tunnel systems” out of fear of their pursuers.

Later, and to even better conceal their position, they established transmission stations on the fifth planet in our solar system, which then existed between Mars and Jupiter . The enemy, deceived by this trick and believing that the signals gave away the fugitives, bombards the aforementioned planet until its destruction. Debris from the exploded world was scattered across what is now called the asteroid belt. This area is made up of thousands of asteroids and small pieces of stones. “Planets don’t explode on their own, someone makes them explode!” says Däniken.

Le Poer Trench adds in his book that, if this really happened, the weapons used in those ancient times were even more lethal than those of our days and would explain the lightning bolts of Zeus and other “gods” with truly destructive capabilities. .

Furthermore, he points out that the gravitational disruptions generated in the solar system by the loss of the fifth planet were responsible for a tilt of the Earth’s axis and the universal flood described by so many ancient cultures.

The Underground Atlantis – Atlantean Tunnels in South America

The ufologist of the last century then cites the Italian journalist Peter Kolosimo and his work  Timeless Earth, where a system of tunnels is mentioned that connects Lima with Cuzco, and from there continue to the Bolivian border.

According to the Kolosimo, these tunnels present a fascinating archaeological problem. Scholars agree that they were not manufactured by the Incas themselves, who used them but ignored their origin. They are so imposing that it does not seem absurd to conjecture, as some scientists have done, that they are the work of an unknown race of giants,” he writes.

On the other hand, the British Harold T. Wilkins, in his book Mysteries of Ancient South America, was probably describing the same tunnel system when he stated:

One of the entrances to the great tunnels was, and still is, near ancient Cuzco, but it is masked so as not to be discovered. This hidden path leads directly to an immense “underground”, which runs from Cusco to Lima, in a straight line, a distance of 380 miles! Then, turning south, the great tunnel extends into what, until about 1868, was modern Bolivia, about 900 miles!

Wilkins also referred to some tunnels in the West Indies:

Strange tunnels of incredible antiquity and unknown origin caught the attention of Christopher Columbus when he visited Martinique, in the West Indies. No doubt the white Atlantean race built splendid cities on what are now islands of the West Indies, but which, at that distant date, may have formed part of the now submerged American continent, whose name is commemorated in the word: “Antilles.” . 

A curious tradition from the old world of Asia is that old Atlantis had a network of tunnels and labyrinthine passages running in all directions, back in the day when the land bridge between the submerged land and Africa on the one hand, and old Brazil on the other. the other existed. In Atlantis, the tunnels were used for necromantic and black magic cults.

Kolosimo, for his part, pointed out that tunnel systems are found all over the world. In addition to South America, he listed California, Virginia, Hawaii, Oceania, and Asia. In Europe there would be tunnels in Sweden, the Czech Republic, and Slovakia; and, in the Mediterranean area, in the Balearic Islands and Malta.

“A huge tunnel, about thirty miles of which have been explored, runs between Spain and Morocco, and many believe that this is how the ‘Barbary monkeys’, otherwise unknown in Europe, reached Gibraltar,” he wrote. the Italian. “It has even been suggested that these cyclopean galleries form a network that connects the most distant parts of our planet.”

The Underground Atlantis and The World of Agartha

Wilkins has more to tell us about the ancient tunnel systems:

Among the tribes of Inner Mongolia, even today, there are traditions about tunnels and underground worlds that sound as fantastic as anything in modern novels. A legend—if that’s what it is!—says that the tunnels lead to an underground world of antediluvian descent or we can say the Underground Atlantis, somewhere in a recess of Afghanistan, or the region of the Hindu Kush.

It is even given a name: Agartha. Legend adds that a labyrinth of underground tunnels and passages extends into a series of links connecting Agartha with all the other underground worlds. The underground world, it is said, is illuminated by a strange green luminescence that favors the growth of crops and promotes the length of days and health.

This last story is of special interest to Le Poer Trench, who draws parallels with another writing by Kolosimo that talks about a similar fluorescence in another part of the world.

In Timeless Earth it is read that “a strange bottomless pit in Azerbaijan” has walls where “a bluish light comes out and strange noises are heard”, adding that after investigating and exploring, “scientists found a complete system of tunnels that connected with others in Georgia and throughout the Caucasus.

After describing these tunnels, which are regular in shape and, he stated, almost identical to others in Central America, Kolosimo goes on to say that they are part of a huge system that even connects with Iran and, in addition, with the tunnels of China, Tibet, and Mongolia.

Now, regarding Wilkins’ account of an underground world called Agartha, which was said to be illuminated by a strange green luminescence, Kolosimo has this to say:

«Tibetans believe that the tunnels are citadels, the last of which still offers refuge to survivors of an immense cataclysm. This unknown people are said to make use of an underground energy source that replaces that of the sun, causing plants to reproduce and prolonging human life. “It is supposed to emit a green fluorescence, and it is curious that we also find this idea in American legends.”


Thus, Le Poer Trench concludes that the Atlanteans and their descendants built tunnel systems around the world for various purposes. Firstly, to protect themselves from the attacks of nature, then very common, in the form of seismic activity and floods, and secondly, as protection in case of being attacked from outer space:

Most of these fantastic tunnels were built in ways that exceed our current capabilities. For years, England and France have been talking about the idea of ​​a Channel Tunnel. However, it seems that the ancients built the amazing tunnels of their time as a matter of course, and on a large scale, for good and compelling reasons.
