At Stone Forest, see natural rock formations resembling animals, frozen fountains, or cascades.The stone formations--mainly between 5 and 7 m (16 and 23 ft) high--do not have solid foundations, but are hollow and filled with sand.

Well worth a visit if you happen to be around. Aim to be there about an hour before sunset as the pillars will be most photogenic. There is a small entrance fee of 3 leva. Ignore the talk of "energies", and "one of a kind" of the guy at the ticket booth. Just enjoy the unusual formations.😉
Magnificent place created by nature. Stone formations are more than 50 million years old. If you have time visit this place. There is like a kind of magic in the air.
