If you have this burning desire to go to Mars but can’t find a flight, check out the Atacama desert in northern Chile. Travel agents call it the driest place in the world and with it’s┬ásand surface and its red rock terrain you kind of feel like you are visiting the red planet itself.

The big difference between the Valle De La Luna and the real Mars is you can breathe. Mars has no oxygen and no gravity so it might be tough getting around. The rock formation pictured above is within the confines of the Valle de La Luna, which when translated to English means Valley of the Moon.
