Overview

Our half-day La Paz tour is perfect for travelers looking for things to do in La Paz, Bolivia. The La Paz tour includes visits to the most interesting attractions in La Paz, including a visit to the otherworldly Valle de la Luna or Moon Valley just outside the city.

Just a few miles outside of the bustling city of La Paz, Bolivia is the Valle de la Luna, a park full of rock-like formations so exotic and unique, they seem otherworldly.

This space has been visited by some of the world’s greatest minds and still holds enormous intrigue and mystery in its craggy formations and wild vegetation. The hiking trails lead to some spectacular views of this mysterious and wild place that’s full of secrets.

What looks like a carpet of stalagmites canvasing a desert, Valle de la Luna, or “Valley of the Moon,” 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 of Bolivia, the gutting formations contain rich variations of mineral content, creating colorful composition throughout the drastic landscape.

Said to have been named by astronaut Neil Armstrong, the Valley of the Moon is located about 10 km southwest from La Paz, near the small town of Mallasa, and while a portion of the valley has been preserved, housing is steadily popping up on the unstable soil. While trails are provided and clearly marked for explorers, they are narrow and a bit treacherous; come prepared for sharp edges and uneven paths.

Itinerary

La Paz & Moon Valley Tour - Half Day

The largest city in Bolivia, La Paz offers more than visitors could hope to see in a single day. We offer walking and driven tours of La Paz for tourists to get a sense of what do in La Paz with introductions to some of the city’s most popular sights, as well as opportunities to get off the beaten path. We offer visitors a chance to chat with their tour guide before they set out so that we can customize visitors’ experiences according to their interests.

We then head to the southern nieghborhoods to visit Valle de la Luna, a fascinating geological anomaly called Moon Valley because of its bizarre, moon-like landscape. One of the most popular attractions in La Paz, Moon Valley features a few kilometers of walking paths that navigate the huge stalagmites and trenches of the valley, carved out of the soil over centuries of erosion by the wind and rain. In addition to its fascinating geology, Valle de la Luna offers impressive views of the Andes Mountains of the Cordillera Real outside the city.
We also arrange a visit to the Costumes Museum and Gold Museum, located on one of the most traditional and oldest street in La Paz. However, on Mondays these museums are closed in which case we will visit the Instrument Museum as an alternative attraction.
