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.

  • This stone monument in the middle of the desert. Looks like it was sculpted mao looks very similar to a stone. And very curious that has the shape of a tree.

  • Very unique in my experience. I loved seeing them, notwithstanding the altitude we were at and way behind schedule. Definitely worth stopping for 
  • Had fun climbing the rocks surrounding Arbol De Piedra. The rock itself is cool and great for photography. Just wished we'd had more time to enjoy it, our tour guide seemed to be in a rush this day.
