SILOLI DESERT | BOLIVIA

Why Visit Bolivia's Siloli Desert?

"Desierto de Siloli, a high-mountain desert in the southwest Bolivian department of Potosi, is known as the Place Where Earth Meets The Sky."

The Siloli Desert is located at 4,500m above sea level. The Andes are part of the desert, which is covered in volcanoes and ridges. The desert road is made up of gravel and sandy roads. The road follows a series of rocks that were formed by strong winds. Arbol de Piedra, also known as Stone Tree, is the most stunning. Because it looks like a tree, this unique volcanic rock formation is very special. Another surreal scene is the beautiful, coloured volcano that dominates the western horizon.
