These unusual geological formation  are about 1,268 - 1,776 cone-shaped  hills spread throughout the towns of Carmen, Batuan and Sagbayan with an area of more than 50 square kilometres (20 square miles). The domes vary in sizes from 30 to 50 metres (98 to 160 ft) high with the largest being 120 metres (390 ft) in height.
