Another fact is that the site resides near to a famous cave called Pawon, where visitors can find fossils of primordial human.

The Nuance
As mentioned before, big rocks and stones become the main feature of Stone Garden Geopark. Despite the fact, several flowers and trees grow on this site as well. Therefore, visitors can also take pictures of those natural objects. The next noticeable feature of the garden is a group of huts built on the hill, where tourists can use for relaxing and sightseeing. Also, the sign of the name of the site was installed on the hill (helping tourists to find the location easily).

Exploring Stone Garden Geopark

There are significant proofs scattered on the site, including the fossils of coral animals and hollow rocks (representing the shape of coral). Through the years, these corals harden and turn into limestone rocks that tourists can see on the site now. For further history regarding the site, make sure to ask either the locals or tour guide.

Another fun thing to do on the site is to climb the hill and witness natural scenery from above. These include the views of local farms, manufacturers, and Masigit Mounting.
