Mogotes Vinales Valley Cuba September 2006

Mogotes are isolated, steep-sided, residual, hills, which are composed of either limestone, marble, or dolomite and surrounded by nearly flat alluvial plains. These hills typically have a rounded, tower-like form. This term was originally used for karst hills developed in the folded limestone in the Sierra de los Organos, Cuba. This term is now used internationally for karst hills, which are surrounded by alluvial plains, in the Tropics regardless of whether the carbonate strata in which they have formed is folded or not.[
