These strange rocks in the desert are certainly worth seeing. Unfortunately,, when we visited the sun was no longer on most of the rocks. This meant that we didn’t see the incredible colours that is possible earlier in the day. Go before dusk!

As others, it's a rock with not much else to look at. You're brought on the Uyuni tours. It's pretty to look at for a few minutes, take a few photos and then you move on.
