Valle de la Luna, La Paz

(3.9/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web)
Seek adventure in a landscape of jagged rock spires at Valle de la Luna, 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. Take a look at our La Paz vacation planner to schedule your visit to Valle de la Luna and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • In the south part of La Paz City, this landscape is an interesting site to discover very nice views. The silence and the sightseeing makes it worth visiting.  more »
  • Very interesting landscape just outside of la Paz. About a 40 minute taxi ride for around 60 Bs. Or you can bus and cabke car. Cool to see if you have a couple hours to kill! Makes for great pictures.  more »
  • Relatively close to La Paz, this was a very cool stop. Take your time look at this interesting geographical landscape and just drink in the contrasts of the red mountains around. Do it!  more »

  • Really not worth it, takes an age to get there by local bus and then you can walk round the whole place is less than an hour. And this was walking slowly. If you happen to be passing this place pop in, it is quite nice. But don't make a trip just to see this.
  • Nice rock formation just 10 min from South of La Paz. Definitely did not expect it. The park is small in 1 hour you can see it all.
  • A magic place, you'll see in here rock formations that can´t be seen anywhere else. It's definitely worth a visit during your stay in La Paz.
  • Not bad, but it's a bit small and already too touristic.
  • Very attractive place but it could be hard to get there on public transport and taxi and especially come back.
