The mystery of the Valley of Ghosts in Crimea

The Valley of Ghosts is a numerous collection of stone sculptures on the slopes of the Southern Demerdzhi Mountain located near Alushta city.

The shapes of stone figures resemble human figures, animals, mysterious creatures, objects, and, depending on time of day and lighting, their images are changing. In addition thick fog is common there.

    Interesting terrain. Images almost look like humans amongst the rocks & few trees. Images look old but alm5ost human.

    So spooky and so difficult to believe that it’s a natural formation
    Just shows the creativity,and sense of humor of mother nature. Could be a sense of macabre too.
