The landscape of the Nabala-Tuhala region has been shaped by karst. Into the crevices of rocks, groundwater has burrowed beds of subsurface streams, caves and other karst formations. During high water, all underground gaps and beds of subsurface streams fill with water and water surges even in areas that are normally dry. The best-known sight is the Tuhala Witch’s Well, which ‘boils’ in periods of high water.
There are three hiking trails to learn about the natural and cultural values of the protected area.
