Under the influence of water and wind a through hole of a regular shape has been formed in the hill, which recalls the moon rising behind the horizon. The height of the hill is equally impressive and is about 300 meters. Its slopes are covered with lush trees, which makes the appearance of the arch even more beautiful.
