Most people are fumbling for words when they are describing their experience, but here is one of the most well-described descriptions from travel writer Andrew Evans in the National Geographic Traveler:
The very extreme edge of Preikestolen looks hand-chiseled, a right-angled granite cube suspended 1.800 ft (604 meters) over Lysefjord. When I reach the top, my primate instincts take over, freezing my boots to the rock. In my mind, I scold the happy fools who sit along the edge, dangling their feet over the unforgiving cliff, absorbing the dizzy view of cold water a thousand feet below. Preikestolen is Norway's travel poster moment. This country has no Coliseum or Eiffel Tower-no, Norway's greatest monument is made by nature: an ice-cracked stone that carved out the near perfect block of rock, offering a heavenly perch for anyone daring enough to stand on top.
