The magnificent granitic rocks have formed over one of the hardest mountains in an area with the largest diversity of flora in the region. Many of these rocks and grottoes were formed in strange and unique shapes and they can be found in the form of some animals, humans, or birds and other strange formations. The caves’ stunning architecture looks like buildings that have been carved out of maintains.

Many of the mountain’s inhabitants at the present time still use these caves as their homes, and some of them have even been developed today to become tourist attractions for visitors from all over the world.
