Stone Mushrooms

The Stone Mushrooms are rock phenomenon near the village of Beli Plast, 19 km from Kardzhali. ‘The mushrooms’ are about 2,5 meters tall, their stumps are colored in pink as a result of a specific mineral found in the area. A different mineral paints the caps in green. The rocks have been shaped in this way as a result of an underwater volcanic activity – after the withdrawal of the water, the erosive processes have finished the re-shaping of the stones.
