The Cueva de Los Tayos (or Cave of the Oleaginous Birds) is a huge cave in the Andes that has long piqued the interest of A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ astronaut theories. They believe the cave was home to A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ peoples who advanced after receiving a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ assistance.
The testimony of a Hungarian explorer named János Juan Móricz, who ventured into the cave in 1969, was included in Swiss author Erich von Däniken\’s book “God\’s Gold” (1972). Juan had discovered gold, strange carvings, carvings and a “metal library” of tablets written in an unknown language that belonged to an A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ lost intelligent c̳i̳v̳i̳l̳i̳z̳a̳t̳i̳o̳n̳, he said.
Such tales enticed explorers to travel to the furthest reaches of South America. Stan Hall, a Scottish engineer, led the first expedition to Tayos, Ecuador, in 1976. He was escorted by over a hundred people. British and Ecuadorian government leaders, notable academics and cavers, British special forces, professional cavers and astronaut Neil Armstrong, who served as honorary chairman of the expedition, were among the participants. It was one of the biggest missions organized by top government officials.
It\’s not easy to get to the most intriguing cave. The roads, which wind through the jungle above the Amazon Basin, are full of potholes and dangerous curves. It is difficult to enter the cave without first getting permission from the local indigenous community known as the “Shuar”, for whom the cave is sacred, after passing the home of large black bullet ants and terrible wet weather. In the cave, the Shuar people perform spiritual ceremonies. They are known for shamanic and violent Amazonian tribes who will not hesitate to kill their enemies.
Tayos gets its name from oily nocturnal birds called diz in Spanish. There are three entrances to the cave that have long been used by the Shuar people to hunt Tayos, which are bat-like creatures.
The largest entrance is 65 meters deep and connects to a network of tunnels and chambers that stretches for at least 4.5 kilometers.
Stan Hall\’s daughter Eileen said in 2017 that her father sent Neil Armstrong a letter inviting him to accompany him on a journey through the South American jungle. Armstrong became more interested in the outside world after his journey to the Moon. Meanwhile, Stan, who had just read Von Däniken\’s book, discovered a fantastic experience.
“When he (Stan) was 26 years old and living in Edinburgh, he had the experience of being bathed in white light,” said Eileen Hall. He claimed he was shown the infinity and interconnectedness of this and other dimensions.” That\’s why he decided to go cave hunting in the Andes.
Armstrong not only responded to his father\’s request, he also agreed to join him in his search, according to her. During the tour, they discovered a cemetery from 1500 BC, as well as stone passageways that appeared to have been created intentionally. In the cave, researchers conducted the study, scientists studied the area and archaeological discoveries were made. However, no gold was discovered and there was no trace of an advanced c̳i̳v̳i̳l̳i̳z̳a̳t̳i̳o̳n̳ or metallic library.
No one knows why Neil Armstrong agreed to join Stan Hall on the mission. When he arrived, however, the Shuar people hailed him as a hero. The people who witnessed him descend the stairs inside the cave witnessed another significant step for humanity.
Eileen believed that after his scientific research on the surface of the Moon, Armstrong was curious about what was left behind in our galaxy. Armstrong compared the mission to landing on the Moon.
