Impressive karst phenomena at the base of the mighty Mürtschenstock!

Description

The view sweeps over a furrowed landscape dominated by grey limestone. Here, weathering caused by mild acidity dissolves the compact limestone. Temperatures above zero degrees are needed for this. Sharp-edged ridges and grooves are formed on the limestone surface.
