For the mountain in GTA San Andreas, see Mount Chiliad (3D Universe).

Chiliad

Mount Chiliad is one of three named mountains in San Andreas in Grand Theft Auto V, the others being Mount Josiah and Mount Gordo. Mount Chiliad is the tallest peak in the state.

LocationEdit

Located far to the north, in the Chiliad Mountain State Wilderness, it serves as the tallest mountain in the game at 798m (2619 ft) above sea level. Two small towns sit at its base. Grapeseed can be found to the southeast, and Paleto Bay to the west.

The strange drawing.

At the base and peak is an aerial tramway station to facilitate travel. There is also a hiking trail running down the east side of the mountain.

At the peak of the mountain is a small wooden observation deck. Two stationary telescopes can be found on the deck, which cost $1 each per use. In addition, two dirt bikes are parked at the peak of the mountain near the observation decks. There is also a derelict wooden ramp near the Gondola station that can be used to drive off the edge.

Inside the tramway station is a cryptic drawing on a wall that depicts what appears to be the mountain and various symbols. There appears to be two sealed doors leading to a tramway station room directly adjacent to the mysterious drawing. The meaning of this drawing is still unknown, though one possible interpretation is that it is a diagram of areas within the mountain that, for now, are not accessible. Many players have noted that one part of the mural appears to depict a jetpack.

A parachute can be found on the tramway boarding platform. One letter scrap piece is located near the Gondola where the parachute is found. The first epsilon tract can be found on the observation platform after all epsilon missions are done.

The message "Come back when your story is complete" is written on the back of the observation deck. This is later revealed to be related to the hidden UFO sighting.

UFO sightingEdit

UFO-100% Completion-GTAV

The UFO appears.

Upon reaching 100% game completion and standing on the observation deck, a UFO with FIB markings will appear overhead. There are three conditions that must be met:

Once the UFO appears, it will stay there as long as you're on the mountain peak. In addition, other UFOs can be sighted in other locations. It can also appear via savegame modding at any time/weather.
