Seen from above, the ancient rocky outcrop looks like a giant honeycomb.

After following the 300-metre trail along the stream, visitors can admire a rocky outcrop of stone blocks in various shapes such as hexagon, round and square, naturally arranged in magnificent layers, stretching 200m wide and 1km along both sides of the stream. Seen from above, the ancient rocky outcrop looks like a giant honeycomb.

According to locals, the Jrai ethnic people living in this area knew about the stream but the ancient rocky outcrop was not as exposed as it is today as it was covered by dense trees and the stream was full of water in the past.

The rocks are believed to be made of basalt, formed hundreds of millions of years ago due to volcanic activity in the area. Scientists believe the rocky outcrop was formed during the process when lava came from the volcanoes and met cold water, freezing and cracked it into many pieces.
