Arbol de Piedra – Stone Tree Trivia

Standing prominently out from the Altiplano sand dunes of Siloli, the Arbol de Piedra or ‘Stone Tree’ really does look like a tree, but research has proven it’s not man-made. No other rock formation in the entire region boasts this kind of ‘design’, aided by strong winds that seemed to be following a blueprint of sorts when they etched this rock formation into the stunted tree shape it displays to date.
