Create an itinerary including Stone Forest
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.

  • Unique natural sightseeing - seabed from 50 million years ago. The rock formations have interesting shapes, according to your imagination and the sand is extremely fine. The gentleman selling tickets and souvenirs is extremely kind and respectful of the place and his work.
  • Hard to find but well worth to visit! Do not miss out on the back/furthest group of stones! They are truly spectacular!
