How to form the Prixtolen rock:
Prixtolen was created about 10,000 years ago, during the ice age and when the natural glaciers reached the edge of the abyss. During this period, the water of the glacier froze in the cracks and crevices of the mountain and finally broke into large and angular rock masses, which were later moved by the glacial flow. This process explains the reason for the angular shape of the glacial plateau.
