Fascinating natural monument worth the few dollars to enter even in 100 degree heat. If it is dead summer, please remember a hat and LOTS of water. We had 3 small children with us and not enough water in the 100 plus weather. There were a few other visitors there and you need a car or taxi to bring you.... More

Quite interesting, but at the end of the day it's just a bunch of rocks. One is shaped like a large phallus which was exhilarating.

Our guide gave us the history of the Stone Forest and it was great to walk through the soft sand and explore all the different stones. Ideal for a short visit.

Stone columns are spread out in 800 meters, you can and should walk among them barefoot in the amazing fine sand. The place is good for a short trip, but don't expect it to be very special.
