The photos say it all. This is a natural rock formations caused by volcanic activity with many interesting rocks formed by erosion. Well worth diverting from the main road. Many interesting things like moss also.

This was one of the highlights of our trip. The red rocks resembled a Utah landscape. It was a lot of fun scrambling and climbing on the rocks.

Definitely one of my favorite views in the Uyuni trip! The rocks will keep your imagination flowing trying to figure out the shapes and forms. You'll have fun climbing them or just peacefulness by walking around them. It is also a great scenery for pictures!...More
