Their names translate respectively as "Valley of the Moon" and "Valley of Death," fitting labels for such distinctive places. Let your imagination run wild as you traverse the moonscape terrain, but remember that the laws of gravity still apply. You can access the valleys by taking a tour from nearby San Pedro de Atacama.

  • Stunning place to visit. Follow the location on the map to enter the park. There’s also huge road signs. Stop at the office to sign in and pay the entrance fee. You’ll be given a map and a quick overview on what points are open and closed. You can bike or drive to each attraction point, some will still require a bit of a hike, for up to one hour. Beautiful out of this world scenery.
  • The place very well explain itself. It feels your are really walking in a different planet, shaped by millions of years of harsh environment, it offers great walks and lookouts. Requires a vehicle to enjoy it fully, don't forget water and sun and wind proof protections.
