Valley of the Moon, Atacama Desert, Chile.

This amazing valley is called Valle de la Luna for a reason. And the reason is obvious: This place looks like an otherworldly area in a Sci-Fi movie.

This extraordinary photo was sent in by Lucy from Around the World. Lucy is a 19-year-old student of the beautiful French language and German. She is based in London, UK, but currently travelling South America during her summer holidays.

El Valle de la Luna (Valley of the Moon) is located 8 miles (13 kilometres) west of the city San Pedro de Atacama, which is situated in the Antofagasta region in northern Chile. The valley is part of the Atacama desert, and is considered one of the driest places on earth.  It is also part of the Los Flamencos National Reserve.

Lucy says about her blog Around the World

My blog is fairly new but features photos from all my travels past & present & I’ve also found it useful for keeping up with family while I’m away.

Lucy also loves cooking and baking, and trying the different cuisines in each country is part of her travel philosophy.
