Preikestolen Norway

Preikestolen is also known as Prekestolen. It's also called The Pulpit Rock, Pulpit or Preacher's Chair. This tourist attraction is located in Strand, Rogaland county. Norway pulpit rock, a steep cliff rising 604m above Lysefjorden, is known as Preikestolen. The cliff's top is approximately 25x25m squared and nearly flat. The Pulpit Rock cliff overlooking city, the fjord is a spectacular sight and is one of Norway's main natural attractions.

The glacier's edges reached the Norway cliff during the ice age. This was approximately 10,000 years ago. The glacier water froze in mountain crevices and eventually broke apart large, angular blocks that were later carried away by the glacier. This is what gave rise to the plateau's angular shape. There is a deep akernes crack running along the plateau. These cracks will eventually cause the plateau to fall, but all geological investigations have shown that it will not. Geologists have also confirmed that the plateau is safe.

Over the four summer months of 2006, approximately 95,000 people walked the 8-km Preikestolen hike to Preikestolen. Since the beginning of the 21st century, tourism has increased at the site. In 2012, Pulpits rock received between 150,000-200,000 visitors, making it one of the most popular natural tourist attractions in Norway. BASE jumpers leap often from the cliff. Because of its popularity, the most popular path to the site is a hike of 3.8 km. This was improved by Nepalese sherpas in 2013.

Pulpit Rock from Stavanger — Pulpit Rock Stavanger, can be found in the southern part of Rogaland's Ryfylke region in Western Norway. 25 km from the site in the city of Stavanger. It is the fourth-largest in Norway and offers direct flights to European cities. The Hundvåg Tunnel will open in April 2020, the route Preikestolen Stavanger is approximately 40 minutes by car.

Preachers rock Norway is one of the most beautiful mountain landscapes. It takes approximately 3-4 hours to climb the Norway cliffs from Stavanger's nearest car park.

It is not an easy path, and some parts are very steep. The climb begins at Preikestolhytta Youth Hostel, at an elevation of about 270m, and ascends to 604m. For experienced hikers, it may take up to an hour. Although the Pulpit rock elevation difference is only 335 m and the distance is only 3.8 km (one-way), the hike is more strenuous and longer because it rises and falls on many passes. Because the road to Preikestolen was built at different elevations, the Pulpit Norway crosses many different vegetation zones, including forests at the base and mosses or lichens at the top.
