Excursion to Stone Forest (Pobiti Kamani) and Hiking

A Walk in a “Stone Forest” and the stunning nature around

“Strange” and “unusual” are definitely two words that pop into the mind when seeing the “Stone Forest” (Pobiti Kamani). The name itself is pretty telling as all around the area stone columns dot the landscape, poking out of a desert. Pobiti Kamani, roughly translated to “stones beaten into the ground” is a UNESCO World Heritage site well worth a trip if you are visiting the area. This desert landscape is filled with naturally occurring hollow columnar rock formations, showing like the remains of an ancient forest built completely out of stone.

Pobiti Kamani’s upright stones vary in size with some measuring as tall as 9 meters. They vary from hollow to solid cylinders. The stone’s diameter ranges from 0.3 to 3 meters thick.

In order to preserve this strange geological phenomenon, the site was designated a natural landmark, part of the ecological network Natura 2000. This area has a big conservation value as the largest inland sand habitat in the country with specific flora and fauna.
