The view is extraordinary and allows tourists to see the snowy mountains of Huayna Potosí, Mururata, and Illimani – as well as part of Lake Titicaca.
The Valley of the Moon, found at 15 kilometers from the center of the city of La Paz, gives every tourist – due to the many years of sedimentary erosion which have formed a set of amazing stony formations – a chance to admire what appears to be a very interesting lunar scene.
