📍Valle de la Luna | Bolivia
Wanna head to the moon?
A forty minute collectivo ride from La Paz towards Mallasa may be just the ticket to make your dreams come true. Known in English as Moon Valley (Valle de la Luna, in Spanish), this site is a maze of canyons and giant spires begging to be explored. These geological formations were created as a result of erosion; add in clay as opposed to rock in this harsh environment, and the result is this spectacular lunar landscape. During the hours I spent there, I was left breathless several times at the valley’s unique creation on display.
Total Cost: $0.40 transport; $2 entry fee
Definitely worth every penny, and then some.
