The name of the valley has two possible explanations, the first is the one referred by the local community members who affirm that in the sector the wind produces pitiful sounds when passing between the formations, the second is that the elongated shapes of the formations suggest the silhouettes of spirits. Between river beds and slopes, cliffs, steep slopes, broken reliefs, an extensive valley of capricious geological formations, gullies and natural obelisks that are part of the landscape of the city of La Paz is discovered. This site called 'Valle de las Ánimas' contains geological formations that resemble gigantic needles and pointed watchtowers of castles 30 to 70 meters high tall. The plateau and the 'Laguna de las Animas' are part of this landscape that offer an exceptional view of Illimani and the other snow-capped mountains of the Cordillera; a site that defies nature, due to the present morphology molded by natural factors.
