Cliff of the film Thelma and Louise
The first secret place is an easter egg from a very cult film from the 90s. The most unsuspecting may think that this has nothing to do with GTA , but it does. In this film, two women are fleeing the police in a frantic car chase. They then decide to jump off a precipice to avoid being arrested by the authorities. Does this spoiler remind you of anything?
Yeah. This final scene of the film was included in the Rockstar GTA V . If you use any type of transport or flying vehicle, go to a mountain near Raton Canyon in Chiliad Mountain State Wilderness. You must be there between 7 and 8 pm. If all goes well, you’ll be able to see Thelma and Louise’s car jump off the cliff, just like in the cinema.
Where to find Thelma and Louise:
Go to Raton Canyon, in Chiliad Mountain State Wilderness, between 7 and 8 pm
Alien frozen under the bridge
Here you need to be aware, as this place is only available at the very beginning of the game Prologue. While you are driving, the game will send you to cross the train track. Do not do it. Turn right, get out of the car and walk under the bridge you would pass over. What will you see? The monstrous creature from the Alien franchise frozen under water.
Where to find the frozen alien :
- While you flee by car in the game’s Prologue, don’t cross the train track

Face on the mountain
Back at Mount Chiliad, you can see a face drawn on the mountain. He is on the north face of the place, and you have probably passed this smiling man drawn on the rock and never noticed it. To be sure that you will find this unknown face, look around the cable car station.
Where to find the mysterious face drawn on the mountain:
At the base of Mount Chiliad, next to the cable car station.
We are going to Tongva Valley. Amid all the nature present here, you should find a cave. It is necessary to explore with great care and patience to find it. We promise, however, to be rewarding, as you will end up finding part of a mysterious spaceship.
Where to find the spaceship part:
- Go to Tongva Valley
- Search through the trees for a cave
- In the cave, go to the foot of a waterfall to discover the spaceship piece
Easter egg from the movie Where the weak have no time
Anyone who has seen this film knows that it shows that crime does not pay. And GTA V makes a point of showing this to the players with the possibility of you visiting one of the final scenes of the film. If you go to the west side of Monte Chiliad, you will see that a deal, probably for drugs, did not go very well.
There will be lifeless bodies scattered around the site, with some abandoned cars. Only one person will be alive, just like in the movie, a man who will warn you not to pick up the suitcase full of money that is nearby. We advise that it is at your own risk to choose to take it.
Where to find the scene where the weak have no time :
On the west side of Mount Chiliad, although you may not always see the scene.
Submerged battle tank
To reach that sunken tank you will need a vehicle that can submerge in the water. Once you are in possession of one, go east to Humane Labs. When exploring the waters of this region you will find a number of military items. Among them is a tank.
Where to find the submerged battle tank:
- Go to Blaine County in San Andreas
- Locate San Chianski Mountain Range
- Dive the waters east of the Humane Labs complexes
This place is very useful if you can find it, as it stores some items that may interest you, such as weapons and ammunition. It is in the Great Chaparral section, a place that is practically absent from buildings and people. There you can find the entrance to an old and abandoned mine. To enter, just use any type of explosive weapon on the door.
Where to find the mine entrance:
- Go to Great Chaparral
- Look on the dirt road between Galileo Road and Zancudo Grande Valley
This secret place in GTA V is an easter egg that will only be understood by those who watched the Lost TV series . Once you have a submarine, you must go to the east end, at San Chianski Mountain Range. Right at the bottom of the sea, you will find a hatch, which is a perfect replica of the hatch shown on the television program.
Unfortunately it is impossible to get close, as the depth can destroy your submarine.
Where to find the Lost hatch :
- Right at the eastern end of San Chianski Mountain Rage
- Dive as deep as you can into the region’s sea
Los Santos has more than one plane submerged in the ocean. If you travel to the peninsula in Paleto Forest, you should go close to the parachute jump point. It is northwest of the peninsula. When searching underwater, there will be a submerged airplane. If you go south of Murrieta Oil Field you will also find an aircraft under the water.
Where to find submerged airplanes:

Of course, GTA V couldn’t do without its Snow Man . Go to La Mesa, and there you will find a deposit from the Fridgit company. Enter the warehouse and you will see a series of blue doors. One of them is half open and, if you look very carefully through the opening, you will find Snowman watching you.
Where to find Snowman:
- Find Fridgit’s warehouse in La Mesa

It is in the middle of four places: north of Americano Way, west of Picture Perfect, east of Eclipse Boulevard and south of Richman, close to the golf course.
This cave is on the east coast of San Andreas. There’s no way to get there by car, obviously, so you’ll need to be smart and creative. Either way, it is at the southern tip of the San Chianski Mountain Range in Blaine County. You can get there by plane or helicopter, although you can also find a spot without that invisible barrier on the nearest road.
Inside the cave you will find a grenade launcher, as well as a useless part of a spaceship.
Where to find Coveted Cove:
Travel by plane to the southern tip of the San Chianski Mountain Range in Blaine County.
Jesco White hut
This secret location is only available in single player mode . To find it, you must go north from Alamo Pier, leaving North Calafia Way.

Where to find Jesco White’s hut:
- Exit North Calafia Way towards Alamo Pier
- Cross the forest to find the hut
This control tower is not quite secret, as it is located in Fort Zancudo, a location where you will eventually go throughout the game. When you get back to that place, instead of going down to the underground labs, just go up the tower. Up there is a Minigun that respawns all the time. It will be useful, as this place is heavily protected.
Where to find the control tower:
Just go to Fort Zancudo. Instead of going down to the labs, go up the control tower.
Submerged bodies of the Sandy Shores poem
There is a poem written on a rock in Sandy Shores. The writer was a serial killer known as Infinity Criminal. This poem has tips for finding the bodies of eight victims. And indeed they can be found. They are located in a group of islands north of Paleto Bay, submerged in the ocean floor, wrapped in plastics.
Where to find the bodies of the victims of Infinity Criminal:
Go to the islands north of Paleto Bay, as shown in the image above.
Ghost of Jock Cranley’s wife
Of course, you couldn’t miss a secret location that allows you to see a ghost. To see this apparition, go to the top of Mount Gordo, between 11 pm and midnight. You will see the ghost of a woman dressed in white. She is the wife of Jock Cranley, a politician in the Grand Theft Auto series. In fact, just below this apparition, it is possible to see Jock’s name written.
Where to find the ghost of Jock Cranley’s wife:
Go to the top of Mount Gordo, between 11 pm and midnight.
Flying saucers (bonus)
We separate this bonus because UFOs are part of GTA mythology . In fact, it is possible to see and even interact with some, as long as you have the necessary equipment for this and have fulfilled some requirements. Confra below which are GTA V .
The first one you can only see after completing 100% story mode. But it is not quite in a secret place, since it is in Mount Chiliad and you have already been there if you got to that point in the game.
Once you reach the top of the hill, you will see a huge alien ship flying over the place. It is possible to view it using specific equipment for this, which are available on site, or using a sniper . If you want you can shoot the object with all its ammunition, although nothing can knock it down.
Sandy Shores’ UFO also requires 100% completion of the game. Once that happens, take a helicopter to Sandy’s hippie camp , where there are alien symbols on walls. Fly as high as you can and hopefully you’ll be able to see the ET ship. There is even an open door on the object, with a light projected outwards.
This is the only alien ship that does not require the player to be 100% complete in story mode. To find it, you must go north of San Andreas, exactly north of Procopio Beach. As soon as you dive, you’ll see what is probably a UFO that landed in the sea and sank there. There are some good mentions throughout the history of this ship.
