Arbol de Piedra, Uyuni

3.8
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.

  • a very popular stop along the path between Uyuni and San Pedro. It is wind-eroded rock formations. the place is nice, like many others in this desert. owes its faa to a rock very eroded at the base, which by some prospects may remember a tree.

  • When you do travel to Uyuni. This is one of the stops on the way, this postcard is in the wilderness of Dali, windy so you need to go prepared with warm clothing.

  • It is a very nice place, with the tree of stone as the most important attraction. There are many rocks, with different forms within this wilderness, but making the tour to Uyuni, in my opinion it is not the most beautiful thing that is visited. Also need to know it if you have the chance. Ideal for photos!
