Stone mushrooms are rock formations that, due to erosion, resemble the shape of mushrooms. They are about 2.5 meters high, their hats have a greenish tinge, and the stumps - pink, due to their mineral composition. They were declared a natural landmark in 1974.

Interestingly, while travelling to them, there was only vegetation around, I did not see any large stones, as happened in other similar areas. I even thought that Google Maps would not take us to the right place again, but after a turn, it was as if they came out of nowhere. There is no parking and entrance fee, but there is a place to stop by the road. They do not take up much space and will not take much of your time, but it is definitely worth seeing live.
