Full description
Discover a unique area featuring lunar landscapes and bizarre geological formations located 10 kilometers from downtown La Paz lies. Valle de la Luna or Moon Valley isn’t really a valley at all, but a maze of canyons and giant spires.  Marvel at the formations, composed largely of clay and sandstone, that was created by the erosion of mountains by the area’s strong winds and rains. Enjoy the serene setting, full of wonder, and intrigue. Head to Chacaltaya after your visit to Moon Valley. Admire this glacier that served as Bolivia's only ski resort until the complete meltdown in the last decade. Discover the former world's highest lift-served ski area and the northernmost in South America as well as the world's second most equatorial after Maoke, Indonesia. Walk from the abandoned ski resort to the top of the Chacaltaya mountain to enjoy great views at over 5000 meters above sea level.

Chacaltaya hat mir sehr gut gefallen, es ist ein guter Test, ob man mit der Höhe von 5000 m zurecht kommt. Die Anfahrt auf einer Schotterpiste ist ziemlich rau, belohnt aber mit herrlichen Ausblicken. Beim kurzen Aufstieg auf den Gipfel hat es geschneit und nicht jeder aus der Gruppe hat den Aufstieg gewagt, sondern ist im Auto geblieben. Das Mondtal ist an sich recht spektakulär, aber sehr touristisch und hat eine nicht ganz so schöne Umgebung.
