Visiting Valle de la Luna (Moon Valley)!


If you happen to be visiting La Paz, the highest capital in the world, make sure to leave at least half a day or more to visit Valle de la Luna. Bolivia’s capital is a big city and this is a great recommendation for a relaxing afternoon activity to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.

Visiting Valle de la Luna

This post about Valle de la Luna comes from Luke Keeler and his travel blog Treasures of Traveling. The post tells of his story when visiting the Valley, just on the outskirts of La Paz.

“A short bus ride from the central part of La Paz you will find an unworldly landscape. Something you might expect to see on the moon; hence the name of the park, Valle de la Luna or Valley of the Moon in English. This lunar landscape of bizarre geological formations is located only 6 miles away from the city center of La Paz, so you can take a short bus ride to view them. These rock formations are composed of clay and sandstone and have been created by mother nature over time with strong winds and rain over hundreds of years. These bizarre formations remind me of the rock formations of Huancayo, located in Peru along with a valley by the same name in San Pedro de Atacama in Chile!”
