Founded in 1956, the reserve is famous for breathtaking nature and abundance of remarkable rock formations, some of which are of very bizarre shapes. Based on their visual appearance, some of the rocks have funny names such as the Rock Mushrooms, the Watch Rock, the Vulture´s Nest, the Crown Rock etc.

The reserve also boasts a very rich and diverse wildlife. The isolated cliffs are home to several species of birds of prey and owls while the ravines provide habitat for badgers, foxes, martens, dormice etc. Most of the reserve is open to visitors who can choose from a variety of well-maintained hiking trails, making it one of the most popular tourist attractions of the area.
