Valle de Luna (“Moon Valley”) is what is left of a mountain composed of clay and sandstone that has been battered by strong winds and time. Like many mountains surrounding the La Paz area, the formations contain rich variations of mineral content, creating colorful composition throughout the dramatic landscape. It is eroding quickly, however, and may not be as striking of an attraction in a few decades.
