Arbol de Piedra, Uyuni

3.4
#2 of 14 in Sightseeing in Potosi Department
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

  • Far from all way long / hard on a stone in the shape of a tree. Not necessary to see it at all

  • When I went there was snow everywhere, always thought I'd see the stone with an air of desert it, it's still beautiful. I confess that I liked most of the pictures, after watching at home, than the stone itself.

  • It is in the middle of the Eduardo Avaroa Andean Fauna national reserve. Strange work of nature in the middle of the desert landscape. All visitors make a stop here to take a picture. In fact, it is the main figure of the official brochure.

Where to stay in Uyuni

Accommodations seem to occupy nearly every other building in Uyuni. Where you stay is of little importance, as the town can be traversed on foot in a matter of minutes. You won't find large luxury hotels here, but you can choose between a range of comfortable inns and guesthouses. Reserve your room in advance, as competition for good rooms can be stiff during high season.
