Due to the constant seeping of rain through the cracks in the limestone, some of the stone formation dissolved and the fissures broadened, producing a group of great sculptures of different shapes, all molded by nature.
Visit the Green Lake------which is gorgeous, crisscrossed by small arched bridges ,and you will take a leisurely stroll along the Green Lake.
