There are lots of beautiful geological formations around La Paz but this is one of the easiest to access and it is full of crazy shapes so I'd definitely recommend a visit. We spent around 1 hour at a pretty slow pace so we could enjoy the landscape, but if you don't have much time there is a shorter route.... More

I would not recommend you to go there. I did not find anything special to see or do there. I went there because the price was the same if we went there or not. You can buy it as a package together with the trip to Chacaltaya. But a green park that was close to this attraction was very nice.... More

Cool scenery, not a long activity but great to wander and take photos for an hour. Just manage expectations! Easy and in our experience perfectly safe to get there without a tour, 4B each way on the yellow micro collectivo/bus that comes down the Main Street to San Francisco church.

Good for one time visit. I took a tour. It is very different experience. It will take 1-2 hr max. Enjoy it.

One of the things that made this trip special is that was an native guy playing the charango over a mountain in the Moon Valley. The walking with the music on the background make a difference. We went on the 15 minute track and we finish it in 7 minutes, so if you got time get the 45 minutes trail.... More

This was ok for an extra of a different tour I was doing. I personally wouldn't bother wasting my time by visiting alone or paying for a tour just do visit

A nice place to go if you are visiting La Paz, at some point you really feel like in another planet. It's a short visit, so it won't take more than half of your day.

It's a nice to see place and the walking path is well maintained. I went with the bus tour from La Paz and they officially only give you 20 minutes to see the Valley. At the end we stayed nearly 45 minutes but that didn't help for people who were back on time. So if you go make sure you... More

Located outside the city it might not be worth the effort to get there. The formations are pretty cool but it's only a 45 minute walking loop. If you do go, take the local bus (vans) to get there. Mallasa or Jupapina.

It's a nice place to see something different and un common, it doesn't take too much time, it's just 45min to see everything.
