  • The valle de la luna is gigantic and with different points and Belvederes, the guided tour is excellent. The valle de la muerte, a great place to admire the sunset

  • The Valley is a beautiful. Well worth visiting. You need to take plenty of water, sunscreen, clothes for tracking and, to the end of the day, a coat, as it cools. The sunset is very beautiful.

  • Valle de la Luna was our first outing in the Atacama to the Ayllu, made with the Guide jason, sensational he, attentive and explained everything very well, giving a lesson on the place! Some people visit the places without guides, go by bike because valle is near San Pedro, but in my opinion without the tabs you know the history and the culture of the place. Be in it seems you no longer on Earth, is a wonderful feeling, there's plenty of trail, including in places with low light, there are climbs a little tiring because of the altitude, water is essential to take this tour. After this tour we pass the Coyote stone and finally a sunset with some goodies in the Valley de la muerte.
