The park represents a phenomenon of karst hydrography. The park harbours a grand collection of waterfalls, gallery of lakes, forest and diversity of animal life. The lakes are renowned for their distinctive colors, ranging from azure to green, grey or blue.

The sixteen lakes which are formed by natural dams of travertine are separated into upper and lower lakes.
