Ryfylke

The Pulpit Rock and the Lysefjord
The Pulpit Rock is a plateau that towers 604 metres over the Lysefjord, and looks as if it has been cut out with a knife. A path makes it possible to get to the top through a somewhat uneven terrain, and the feeling you get by standing on the top of the plateau makes it worthwhile. From there you get a beautiful view over the Lysefjord - a 40 km fjord sourrounded by high mountains. Kjerag - 1084 metres, is the highest top in the Lysefjord.
