With bizarre, spectacular rock formations created by erosion--and not a tree in sight--the twin valleys of Valle De La Luna feel like another world. Their names translate respectively as "Valley of the Moon" and "Valley of Death," fitting labels for such distinctive places. Let your imagination run wild as you traverse the moonscape terrain, but remember that the laws of gravity still apply. You can access the valleys by taking a tour from nearby San Pedro de Atacama. Put Valle De La Luna and other San Pedro de Atacama attractions into our San Pedro de Atacama online trip planner , and watch your holiday take shape.

Lo recorrí en un tour de unas 3 horas. Muy lindos los paisajes, el trekking y la puesta de Sol. Uno de los tours "obligatorios" que no hay que dejar de hacer. more »I toured it on a tour of about 3 hours. Very nice landscapes, trekking and sunset. One of the "mandatory" tours that you should not miss.
Welcome to terrestrial Mars... a stunning landscape displaying a gamut of sunset shades, pitted and whittled down by the harsh winds of the Atacama. Valle de la Luna provides an excellent 360 degree vista of the variety the desert has to offer, from caves, to hills, to valleys, to dunes. Although the sunrise provides a worthwhile view, the sunset is just lovely and draws quite an audience. A jacket and long pants to keep the sand from exfoliating your skin right off, a blanket for a comfortable perch along the ridge, and some hot coco or wine, will make for a surprisingly peaceful and majestic experience, even with the abundance of bodies. Highly recommend, especially if you have your own vehicle and the flexibility that comes with it.
This is a wonder. One of the most beautiful places I have been to. It feels like you are walking through a story, or a dream. And there is ample reason why it is called the Moon Valley. This was the highlight of my visit in the Atacama Desert.
