“Breathtaking views, fun way to see them.”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

Quad biking through some outstandingly beautiful scenery with a guide, this is one of the most fun and memorable parts of my travels. Good value, good fun.
Only bad point is that the locals have turned an exquisite viewpoint into a rubbish dump, Bolivia and its residents should definitely do more to look after its natural beauty.
Go in a group if you can, the price will be more readily negotiable and you can share the fun and the cab fares there and back too.

“Unique place”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

You can get there by bus, takes you right to the front gates. The entrance fee is around 30 bolivianos. Very interesting place, you can walk around for an hour easily. There is some information on how it was created, etc at the entrance. Don't leave La Paz without seeing this natural wonder.

“Interesting badlands”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Go late afternoon or early morning, The shadows make these badlands even more intriguing. It is a lunar landscape devoid of almost all life. 45 minute walk far better than the 15 min version. But pay attention. This is not your safe US style romp in the park. You can seriously hurt yourself falling off the official path. Itis narrow and falls off a hundred feet or more in some places. If you take kids keep a very close watch. They will be fascinated and distracted.. Same goes for you as you take photos...

“To each their own”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

Personally I wasn't overly impressed with the Valle de la Luna. It's a large area of landscape that has been formed by rain and sun. The rain has washed away mud\dirt in many places and to form the valley. It's then been baked by the sun. It takes a lot of setup to get a great picture of anything because you really don't want the new buildings in the background of your pictures. I thought it was just like walking around the banks of a river almost anywhere in the world.
The cheapest way to get there is by using the Micro-bus system from in front of San Francisco Church\Plaza. Look for a 1\2 bus that has Mallasa printed on the window and get on board. In August 2013 it cost 2.5 bs. Ask the driver to drop you at Valle de la Luna. It's on top of a mountain about 30 - 45 minutes after you get on the bus. For me the drive out was worth the trip, you follow a nice river for a bit, drive passed a lot of beautiful homes and embassies what looks to be a 5 star hotel on the bank of the river and the free to enter Valle de le Sol.
If you stay on the bus, it ends at the Zoo. Most people in La Paz didn't even know the city has a Zoo. I found the zoo a lot more interesting then Valle de la Luna.

“How could they have let rich people build on this amazing site”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

It is so fabulous and watch out for viscachas (chinchillas) in this amazing moonscape with good walkways. So crazy that they let a golf club and expensive residences be built on the edges of it. Only money is sacred evidently. Highlight of overdeveloped La Paz nonetheless
