Awa Sand Pillars

A natural work of art, these sandstone pillars are the product of some 200 million years of erosion. Lit up at night, its beauty seems otherworldly. The sand pillars are one of the world's most unusual formations, reminiscent of the Rocky Mountains in the USA or the Dolomites in Italy.
