Description

The Stone Sea, near Szentbékkálla in the Kál Basin (Káli-medence), is one of the must see sights around here.

If climbing up on the large rock formation in the center, beware that the large cantilevered ledge ( bilegő kő, tipping stone) will suddenly tip downward ~10cm as you walk out on it.

The unusual rock formations and stone cavities evolved following the post-volcanic era when thermal springs erupted in the area, and the hot water hardened and cemented the local white sand into a stone mass.

This was my fathers playground as a child.
