Valley of the Moon, La Paz

3.6
#1 of 20 in Parks in La Paz
Seek adventure in a landscape of jagged rock spires at Valley of the Moon, located just minutes from La Paz. Literally translated from Spanish as the "Valley of the Moon," the landscape was created by gradual erosion by wind and water. You can see why the bizarre clay formations have always drawn comparisons to the otherworldly as you wander through the field of spires and climb up staircases carved into the rock. Note the many colors of the landscape, ranging from sandy brown to red and violet, caused by the variety of minerals in the rock.

  • As we do not visit one of the biggest attractions that the city has, for those that affect us the height of La Paz and visit in Valle de la Luna, it is like "walking on the moon", almost in the air, which makes it more attractive. It is close to the city, has no guides and does not have a place to buy something to drink so bring something to hydrate because you walk a lot to enjoy this beautiful panorama.
