The Pointed Needle

This is a 337 meter high basalt mountain, an extraordinary geological wealth of the Káli Basin. Its formation: during the volcanic eruption, the basalt lava got stuck in the flue before arriving to the surface. The rocks embracing the solidated lava have been eroded, the basalt remained and the hard material took the shape of a steep cone. The basalt was mined from the 30-ies until 1970. Today it is a protected geological sight.
