About
After Hotel pickup go straight to Chacaltaya, this is a mountain with an elevation of 5,321 m.a.s.l. Over 80% of Chacaltaya's glacier melted between 1987 and 2007. The glacier was one of the highest glaciers in South America. When arriving to the refuge, have the chance to walk up to the top of the mountain. Also see Huayna Potosi and Illimani Mountains; Lake Titicaca and some parts of El Alto city. Walking up and watching all landscapes last for about one hour and half, after that at 12:00, go down, and get on the bus again to leave for the Moon Valley. Arrival at 1:30 p.m. to Moon Valley. This valley has a particular rock formation which is similar to the moon`s surface. When in there, see different kinds of trees and plants (local of the area), between them is the cactus San Pedro. The tour lasts for about one hour. The final part there is a viewpoint for taking some amazing pictures

    Valley of the Moon
    Stop: 60 minutes - Admission included
    The forces of nature sculpted a strange scene, making Valle de la Luna a fascinating place to go for a walk, especially if you have an interest in geology. Arrival at 1:30 p.m. to Moon Valley. This valley has a particular rock formation which is similar to the moon`s surface. When in there, see different kinds of trees and plants (local of the area), between them is the cactus San Pedro. The tour lasts for about one hour. The final part there is a viewpoint for taking some amazing pictures.

Disappointing Tour and a Tough Climb
Nov 2019
We booked a tour to the Valley of The Moon and Mt Chacaltaya out of LaPaz. We were there in November, 2019 during the post election protests. We met our guide, Patti, at a rendezvous point near the Prada. The pick up was about 30 minutes late. The part of the tour to the Valley of the Moon was canceled due to protestors blocking the road. We received no refund. We did drive to Mt Chacaltaya and scrambled to the top. Although the walk is not steep and the path pretty good, be prepared for a tough climb given the altitude of about 17,000 feet. You will need to take numerous stops and the climb will take longer than you expect. The views of the surrounding Andes Mountains was spectacular. Well worth the effort.

Overall the trip was fine, but make sure you know what you are getting yourself into. Also, we were somewhat disappointed by the reluctance of our guide to stop and allow us to take pictures at various places on the trip. If you choose to take this trip, be sure to inquire carefully about the logistics.

Second day and without fear.
Feb 2019 • Family
The tour is really cool.

It was our second day, we felt the altitude sickness as soon as we got to the hotel.

The guide did not do a lot of stops for people to recover from the disease. She was the first to reach the summit. Four tourists gave up early on the trail.

The beauty of Chacaltaya Mountain and what can be seen from up there is incredible. It's well worth it.

No stop for lunch.

The Valley of the Moon is a nice tour, as well.

Amazing Moon Valley and Chacaltaya Mountain.
Jul 2018 • Family
We were a party of 4, 2 adults and 2 kids. We were picked up from our Hotel by our guide. The whole day was very informative with a friendly and informal feel to this unique experience. Our guide was very amiable and full of knowledge on many different subjects covered during the day.
We stopped at numerous locations throughout and discussed many different subjects such as: geography, geology, park natural history , Bolivian life, flora and much more.
