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.

  • A very good location to stop on the road trip. Also see a few vicuna. Also a great place to take unique photo.  more »
  • Most of the tours go through this spot. It is very photogenic and you can probably get a memorable shot at this location, not to mention a lot of fun social time getting to know your trip companions.  more »
  • It's quite beautiful and thought-provoking think who "made" that format was the wind. It's really an art made by nature. < 3
