The Stone Sea , ~ 1km west of 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.


So why did this stitch to a perfect rectangle and some of the others stitch to a curved panel? Pronounced banding in this one too. Again, the overlap was minimal and perhaps this is it.
