Valley de la Luna (Moon Valley), is a maze of canyons and giant spiers. The formations, composed mainly of clay and sandstone, were created by the persistent erosion of the mountains by the strong winds and rains of the area. Is located 10 kilometers from the center of La Paz, it is a unique area with lunar landscapes and strange geological formations.
One of the most impressive features of Valley of the Moon is its varied pallet, from light beige tones to sections of red and dark purple. This natural phenomenon is due to the great variation in the mineral content between each individual mountain, creating colorful compositions and impressive optical illusions on the eroded hillsides.
