Sorry, no etymologies found.
The well exposed bedrock comprises crystallines of the Vaikrita group with sedimentary, mica schist and shale rocks.
Most of the Park falls within the central crystallines, a zone of young granites and metamorphic rocks.

Remnants of sandstone occur in places on the north of the great fault, and are here seen to rest on the worn and fairly even surface of the crystallines.
