Once this was a range of mountains consisting primarily of clay, and in the course of time pouring rains shaped these clay formations into beautiful massive and thin spires and likewise deep narrow gorges. The area is somewhat reminiscent of the Moon surface and is accordingly named Valle de la Luna. The clay spires are mainly beige in colour and light brown, though reddish ones also occur, and sometimes crimson is intensified to dark violet. The multicoloured valley lies 10 km from the downtown of La Paz, and the best time to visit the natural attraction is during the dry winter from June to September, when clear blue skies beautifully contrast with the spires' hues.​
