Elevation 7,000 ft.

Monte Alban is at an elevation of 7,000 ft. In the 12th century, the high priests of Monte Alban decided to bury the city in order to preserve the sacred site and keep it`s location hidden from invaders. This is why the Spanish never learned of it`s existence until the 1930`s. Incredible!
