Arbol de Piedra, Uyuni

(3.5/5 based on 480 reviews on the web)
Admire an interesting rock formation and focal point of the landscape at Arbol de Piedra. This "Stone Tree" juts out from the altiplano sand dunes within a national reserve, forming a shape that resembles a 7 m (23 ft) tall tree. Strong winds carry the sand that has carved the rock into its iconic shape by eroding the soft sandstone. Much photographed because of its characteristic natural design, the spot is a huge draw for impassioned photogs. To visit Arbol de Piedra on your trip to Uyuni, use our Uyuni trip itinerary maker.

  • The stone tree, an amazing thing to see looks like a giant mushroom in the middle of the desert, because there are a lot of volcanic rocks in those places get as sculptures of an incredible beauty ... worth seeing it once

  • The Arbol de Piedra is a well-known attraction for the people doing the tour of the Salar de Uyuni. On the day we arrived until she was taking place a sandstorm that was hard to get out of the car, but how good self-respecting adventurer, being there has to face. In addition to this training, in the surroundings there are several other interesting rock formations.

  • Is the first stop after the first night on the way to the Salar. Is interesting, but not called me a lot of attention.
