Visited in July in the middle of the day, very hot at this time and I recommend visiting the attraction early if possible. I saw a snake and this really spoilt the experience for me, the sand was so hot you couldn't walk but had...More

Entrance is 2 leva (1€) but no guide or anything. Some funny souvenirs but that's it. Not a petrified forest but a strange phenomenon found only in three places in the world where the rocks were hydrocarbon deposits on ancient volcanic shafts on the bottom...More
