Travel to Quiocta Caverns, one of the most impressive natural attractions of Lamud District. Among the typical vegetation, 40 minutes drive from Lamud, are the incredible limestone needles with different shapes and sizes, known as stalactites and stalagmites. Mineral formations often found in caves and caverns. They come to be an accumulation of calcium carbonate, where the stalactites with calcareous concretions that arise from the roofs of caves in the form of an inverted cone as they relate to the stalagmites are those that emerge from the ground up to form over thousands of years by precipitation of minerals from groundwater.
