THE RENON EARTH PYRAMIDS
Take advantage of your holiday on the Renon plateau to visit Europe’s highest and most impressive earth pyramids. The ADLER guides offer several different hikes that lead there. These curiously shaped earth columns, made of glacial moraine clay sculpted by the alternation of rain and drought, rise from deep gorges up to 30 metres in height. Their lifespan is very variable, as it all depends on the capstone: as soon as the protective cap falls away, the pyramid crumbles. From what remains, nature builds a new pyramid further uphill.
