Vale da Lua (Moon Valley), Brazil

Moon Valley BrazilExotic place Vale da Lua (Moon Valley) is a water eroded rock formation with natural swimming pools, placed on a river in the brazilian cerrado forest. It is part of the Chapada dos Veadeiros National Park.

The public that visits the area has doubts concerning the origin of the rock, that is observed along 400 meters of the current bed of the drainage and that it is also present in the access trails. Many people attribute, mistakenly, a volcanic origin for the rocks present in the area. The misunderstanding on the genesis of this rocky formation is one more reason to publish the information contained in this work.
The conglomerate is not exclusive of the Vale da Lua location, but occurs discontinuously in restricted places, always in the same stratigraphic position composing an index layer that marks ParanoĆ” Group base, in the erosive contact with the AraĆ­ Group.

It lies off some 189 and 217 nautical miles off the coast of Yemen (depending on your source of information), and some 130 off the coast of Somalia. The island is very isolated and through the process of speciation, a third of its plant life is found nowhere else on the planet. It has been described as the most alien-looking place on Earth. Socotra is part of the Republic of Yemen. It has long been a part of the 'Adan Governorate, but in 2004 it became attached to the Hadhramaut Governorate, which is much closer to the island than 'Adan (although the closest governorate would be Al Mahrah).
