Winter adventure tours to the ancient tropics, tracking prehistoric footprints at Ipolytarnóc
Origin Miocene, Sarmatian.
The type area of the Sarmatian Kozardi Formation, typical of the area of the North Central Mountains, was excavated in a trench parallel to the eastern side of the highway leading from Kozárd to Alsótold, near the cemetery. The formation is a marine, semi-aquifer formed between the Badenian volcanites and the freshwater Pannonian formations. The formation is also rich in organic remnants, sometimes over-accumulated, trunks of petrified trees can be found.
