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. It seems as though the pillars are stuck into the surrounding sand. The prevailing theory is that this petrified forest was formed some 50 million years ago while it was still a part of the sea floor.

Stone Forest reviews

Looking for something to do when you are bored or the weather is not that good for a beach day? Take a trip to this beautiful place and see what Nature can do. Went with my two boys, 10 and 3, and... more »
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.
