Lunar Landscapes in the Atacama Desert

The strange rock formations and dunes of Valle de la Luna, the changing colors of Valle de la Muerte and the Cordillera de la Sal offer wonderful photo opportunities. These desert destinations are also perfect for star gazing.

Valle de la Luna is located less than two kilometers from San Pedro de Atacama, and can be reached by bicycle. Several agencies offer a five-hour tour of this valley, Valle de la Muerte and the Cordillera de la Sal. Some even include trekking and sandboarding on the dunes.

The most popular spots are the Cordillera de la Sal Lookout, Ckari Ravine, Tres Marías (a set of unusual, sculpture-like salt formations), and the biggest dune in Valle de la Luna. Many visitors gather there at sunset, which is the best time of day to enjoy the beautiful shadows and changing colors of the landscape and take some amazing photographs.

Tips

01

Footwear Clothing
Make sure you bring quality footwear. If you visit this area. Also, warm clothing is a must for sunset visits because it gets cold in the desert as soon as the sun goes down.
