These two valleys lying close to each other is quite difficult to describe because of their beauty, but also desolate wildness evokes in the mind the sensitive traveler often amount contradictory impressions. One must humbly bow to the power of nature and realize what is irrelevant. These valleys are nice for admiration but impossible for normal life. It simply has... More

First of all, I don't understand why these two attractions are categorized together. They are different experiences. Here's what you need to know about Valle de la Muerte: We chose to go sand boarding in Valle de la Muerte. Sand boarding is athletically difficult, but fun. If you don't snowboard, the first run is terrible, followed by a tiring sand... More

The place, near to San Pedro de Atacama is a beautiful and interesting one to explore. Certainly you can go by your self, but nothing like to have a very good guide to explain the geological history of the place. I visited the place with Acamarachi tours (experts in geology) and it was really fantastic to understand all the formations,... More

One should spend at least a day here. Lot of places to explore and lot of unique landscape. Mostly visited for sun set. But allocate more time for hike . Make sure to have water with you . Last entry is 6 PM

One of the cheapest and closest places to San Pedro de Atacama, and also one of the most amazing tours. Totally unexpected and amazing landscapes, the photos get simply amazing. Don't miss the sunset on the Coyote Stone. Unlike other tours, this one departs in the afternoon by most agencies so it's already very hot. Wear light clothing, bring water,... More

Beautiful to say the least. The sand dunes and the place is mystical. We felt like we were walking on the moon. Absolutely blown away.

Very nice dunes and views around Valle de la Luna and Valle de la Muerte. Some of the trails can be very steep and tiring but definitely worth taking.

Prepare your fellings to meet this incredible place. You will fell like in Mars and have fun taking nice pictures from the top of the little mountains.

Please not that Moon Valley and Death Valley should be categorized separately as they're completely different. First, Moon Valley is over rated and completely touristy. If you have time go..if you dont have time then see something else. Moon Valley is not that great. Death Valley on the other hand is incredible. The views are spectacular. Note its also touristy...

Valle de la Luna was a highlight of our trip to San Pedro de Atacama and it is so accessible from the town centre. Make sure you have water, hat and sunscreen!
