Arbol de Piedra, Uyuni
(3.5/5 based on 440+ 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.

  • Stay inside the Park Eduardo Abaroa. very interesting the formation by wind and rain. Worrying is that, as is isolated, there is no supervision by guards and a few tourists climb in it, which probably can destroy it.

  • It is part of the attractions of crossing the desert Siloli, find some rock formations and is in particular with its whimsical shape, invited to take photographs.

  • This monolith of rock has a lightness that makes it unique. avoid public bathrooms are always impractical as they're filthy, even according to the local guides
