Arbol de Piedra, Uyuni

(3.5/5 based on 500+ 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.
