Dzilnas Rock

Dzilnas Rock is a multicoloured artwork of nature!

The rock is a high cliff with multicoloured outcrop layers. The rock can be seen from the Amata Geological Trail on the right bank of the river. Dzilnas Rock consists of four bright layers: reddish clay, blocks of broken sandstone, a high slope with a spring that turns into an icefall in winters, and white sandstone.

Dzilnas Rock is a beautiful artwork of nature being even more impressive due to the beautiful landscape around it.

The word has it that people from the East used to come to Dzilnas Rock to meditate in the beautiful scenery. You are also guaranteed to feel something special here!
