Pyramid Lake and Tufa Formations 2012

Pyramid Lake and Tufa Formations at Indian Head Rock

Indian Head Rock on the right is just one example of the giant tufa formations that formed more than 13,000 years ago at Lake Lahontan. The present day remnants can be seen around Pyramid Lake. This deposit is mainly composed of interlocking spheres, barrels and tubes of tufa. Broken and eroded sections have exposed generations of thinolite crystals.

Pyramid Lake is located on Paiute Tribal lands near Reno, Nevada. If you visit, be sure to check in and get a permit at the store and respect the areas that are for tribal access only.
