Near the south border of Salar de Arizaro, in 70 km from the village of Tolar Grande in Argentina, lies a strange volcanic pyramid. This is Cono de Arita and it looms majestically 122 meters above the Salar. Its name comes from the Aymara language where Arita means “sharp”. Cono de Arita is natural and believed to be a small volcano which lacked strength to burst through the curst and so never threw lava or developed a crater.
