Panoramas of the World

Moon Valley (Chile)

South Americans are not stingy with the label “moon valley”. Where ever water and wind left bizarre landscapes, this title can be found. But the moon valley in the Atacama Desert close to San Pedro certainly deserves the name and a visit.

The mountains and sand dunes constantly change their colours at sunset. That is a fascinating scene in a region which very rarely sees any rain. Animals avoid the “Valle de la Luna”, for travellers it is one of the main attractions in the northern part of Chile. The "Valle de la Luna" is also worth a visit at moonlight.
