MOON VALLEY

San Pedro de Atacama (Pt.2)

Our second tour was Valle de la Luna, or, “Moon Valley” - one of my favorites!  It was quite warm while exploring, which made it hard to believe I was in freezing temperatures that same morning at the Geysers.

A must for hiking - a Fanny Pack!  (mine is Everest for under $10!)

Valle de la Luna is a must see.  The terrain has been carved by the wind, creating a mix of stone, salt, and sand formations.  The wide range of texture and color resembles the surface of the moon- hence the name.  Our tour guide took us hiking up and down the mini mountains, with spectacular views I have never seen in my entire life!
