Preikestolen: Preacher’s Pulpit, Norway


Everybody is scared and everybody tries to have a look down at least once. Preikestolen or Prekestolen is a massive cliff 1982 feet (604 meters) located in southern part of Norway. Hiking to Preikestolen is not one of the easiest things to do, however if you like walking through virgin forests with crystal clear streams, you will enjoy it. From the top you can see the most famous Norwegian attractions – fiords. This view of huge ancient rocks falling into quiet water, where there are no signs of civilization is breathtaking. It was really frightening to look down to the alluring deep dark blue water but after I got used to such heights, I was sitting on the edge of the cliff and enjoying the most gorgeous view.
