Fact Check: There Are NO Pyramids In The Pilis Mountains Fiction

Are there pyramids hidden in the Pilis Mountains in Hungary? No, that's not true: The video tries to prove this claim with graphics and a photo from Romania, but there is no evidence for this.

The claim appeared in a video on TikTok (archived here) on November 19, 2023, under the title (translated from Hungarian to English by Lead Stories staff) "Pilis pyramids. Discover the mysterious Pilis pyramids in the Danube Bend! At first glance, they appear to be mountains and forests, but their shapes hint at deeper secrets!" It opened (as translated):

Did you know that Pilis hides pyramids? The pyramids that look like mountains have been with us in the Danube Bend for thousands of years. The layman's eyes see mountains and forests, however, if we observe the shapes a little, it is easy to see what is actually hidden under the surface.

This is what the post looked like on TikTok at the time of writing:

The "Pilis pyramids" Google search in Hungarian (archived here) didn't lead to any useful results.

The video mostly uses graphics, except for a photo at the beginning of the video that shows a pyramid-shaped mountain. Using a Google Lens search (archived here), Lead Stories found that the mountain in the picture is in Capusu Mic, Romania, not in Hungary. The same photo is used by hiking blogs, and the shape of the mountain matches the Google Maps 3D satellite view.

There are many myths associated with the Pilis Mountains, one of which is that, according to the Dalai Lama, the Earth's heart chakra is located in the Pilis. This claim has been debunked by the Dalai Lama himself.
