A pretty cheap tour of valley of the moon included stops at various cool rock formations, a walk/climb through a cave and ends off in overlooking the sunset in the valley. Worth an afternoon and the price for that view alone.

A must see when you are in San Pedro de Atacama. Very strange landscape. You feel like you walk on the moon!

Both Valle de la Luna and Valle de la Muerte are very close to town. In fact, they are across the road from each other, off the road from San Pedro de Atacama to Calama. They are both spectacular, though Valle de la Luna takes the cake. Definitely the highlight of our time in San Pedro. The only downside is... More

I could just imagine this place as a setting for any interstellar movie. It is magical and spectacular. However it is quite high up and I suffered a bit from altitude dizziness.

The Valle de la Luna is filled with amazing rock formations and there is a hike with great views. The whole area is beautiful with unusual geological wonders. The sunset fills the sky with red in the clouds.

A great hike up a dry canyon with a rushing stream at the bottom. The dry hot hike is rewarded by swimming in hot springs followed by a great lunch.

Both parks are very close by San Pedro and each other, if you have time only for one, choose the moon valley. Don't hire a tour agency as we did. It was awful doing it with a large group, having to wait everyone, etc... We ended up loosing the amazing sunset. If you don't have a car (which i strongly... More

A privilege to have visited, but in my opinion essential to travel in your own rental car. The group and guided tours looked pretty grim, busy and of course always take away from the splendid isolation of the desert.

It's a wonderful place totally worth a visit in Atacama. But be patient, as there are many people in different groups that may walk very slowly and delay your passage through the caves and up the sand dune.
