Interesting landscape

I was surprised how this landscape was so compelling. I have been to other places called the Valley of the Moon and have never felt as drawn to them as here.

Part of Atacama desert in Chile, Valle de la Luna is spectacular! A tip? Rent a bike and go there with friends or by yourself ;)

The area is soooo beautiful. but. don't go with Lickan Antay! terrible experience with the tour guide Pedro who is basically just a driver. No information given. Terrible communication, doesn't speak English, and was more interested about flirting with some girls than the people in his tour. The owner Jesós didn't care about our feedback at all. Go somewhere else... More

I took a leisurely ride through Valle de la Luna one day, stopping at the caves and the various miradors. The lady at the entrance was very good at explaining the map. By taking a bike you avoid the crowds who take the tours for sunset. There is so much more to see here than just the sunset. Do be... More

I rented a bicycle and rode into the Valle de la Luna... Wow! It will remain one of the most surreal and mesmerising g experiences in my life. I spent hours and hours exploring the beautiful landscape, that cannot be described as anything less than alien like. The desert sands and incredible orange and red rock formations, covered in glittering... More

A location that almost appears alien (mars like)...the salt in the desert with the snow on the distant mountains make for an interesting view... not top of the list for me if you have seen the egyptian farafara desert....

We visited the Moon Valley at the end of afternoon, planing to see the sunset. The valley can be accessed with a tour or by bike, it's about 15 km from San Pedro, but the road is going uphill so it takes a bit of training (especially when not used to high elevations) and a lot of water. There a... More

This was a place as desolated as you can ever visit. Nice rock formations and salt rocks made the visit very unusual. The tour ended with a cocktail at sunset. Just splendid!

I think it's a lot nicer to just rent a bike and go to Valle del Muerte on your own. I rented a bike for half day and also rented the snowboard. It took about 30 minutes by bike and climbed up the sand dunes to do the snow boarding. It was a lot cheaper (total of 3000 pesos) and... More
