Petrified Forest

0 251

The Petrified forest is hidden in a beautiful canyon nearby the village of Raven, Momchilgrad area. The forest keeps “tree trunks” standing upright with a maximum height of 1,5 m. It is considered that the stone stumps were formed after underwater volcanic activity burned the trees and covered them with ash. It is recommendable to take a guide to the site, cause it is not well marked and there are many tricky places. Besides the interesting stone trees, the area is exceptionally beautiful and also there are some Thracian trapezoidal niches on the rocks above this valley.
