Rock Prekestulen (Rock Chair of the Preacher)
Norway, Stavanger (town)

Rock Prekestulen or Skala Chair of the preacher - a giant cliff 604 meters high, with an almost flat top-platform measuring 25 by 25 meters. The cliff overhanging the Lysefjord offers a magnificent view, making the Chair of the Preacher known as one of the main natural attractions of Norway. Between the plateau Prekestulen and the mountain there was a cleft. There is a tradition that when seven sisters wedding with seven brothers from the Lucyfjord area, the plateau will come off the cliff and fall into the water, and huge waves will destroy all life around. But while the rock is standing, more than 200,000 people rise to its peak annually. The trail to the plateau passes among the diverse mountain landscapes, in some places the trail is very steep, but impassable sections are quite short. Climbing starts from Preikestolhytta Youth Hostel at an altitude of about 270 meters and rises to 604 meters, usually the climb takes about 2 hours, and taking into account the descent from the top, the road takes about 4 hours and is more than 6 km, since the trail rises and falls many times on the passes . But, having overcome the path to the top of the cliff, from the beauty of the wild nature of the fjord, tourists forget about muscle pain and fatigue. Some daredevils risk sitting on the edge of a cliff with their legs dangling into a bottomless abyss, while fearless ones do base jumping (parachuting from the top of the cliff).
