Moon Valley Tour
This tour is done in regular and private services, departing every day.
It lasts from 16,00 to 20:30 hrs, departing at your hotel.
Located 19 kms far from San Pedro, this Sanctuary of Nature is formed by a hollow surrounded by little hills with amazing sharp crests. The first stop will be in the lookout point in La Sal, where you can see Sal Range and the Atacama Salt Flat.
Afterwards, we’ll visit the Death Valley, surrounded by red-brown hills of peculiar morphology; it is also a part of the Cordillera de la Sal (Salt Mountains). We will have a short hike walking between attractive geological forms; beautiful dunes appear interrupted by sharpened hills rich in crystallized gypsum. This scenery recreates a planetary image, and during dawn and twilight hours, everything ignites in an orange tone.
Then we’ll visit Moon Valley, a valley of statuesque, rocky formations. Salt emerges to the surface, covering the surface with a dry, whitish layer that gives the place a lunar aspect. In the Valle de la Luna, we visit the statues of salt called “Las Tres Marias“ , the salt mine, the salt caves and we will walk up by the sand dunes of the area until we reach the summit of the Big Dune and wait for sunset.
