This is a well maintain park with sign boards showing various walking tracks with distance of each track stated on the board.  The rocks forming in various shapes and some of the rocks formation became a cave where we can simply walk in to the cave. The  rocks were formed when lava pools on the small lake. The lava flowed across the wet sod, the water of the marsh started to boil, the vapour rising through the lava forming lava pillars from drainpipe size up to several meters.

This terrace of burnt rocks and pillars are surrounded with trees and grass. Utterly, a peaceful and beautiful place to visit. There are no visitors around here and following the track, there is a big formation of rocks with a big hole in the middle. if we walk up on the little hill, we can see the whole areas of this Dimmuborgum. It look such a vast wildness, the trees and grasses turned to reddish/brown colors

We walk around the park for about an hour  and went back to our hotel as the weather is so gloomy with rain and strong wind. This park is very beautiful in winter, during December the park will be decorated with lights.
