It’s hard to tell how long the formation of a full-blown earth pyramid actually takes, simply because it depends on too many factors. It’s just as difficult to assert how old an earth pyramid might be or can get. What we can say for certain though is that the biggest and prettiest ones develop over the timespan of thousands of years. Once the boulder falls from its peak, an earth pyramid quickly bites the dust. When this happens, the material below is naked, exposed to the rain, and the pillar shrinks with every rainfall. While one earth pyramid vanishes through this process, a bit further up the slope the next one comes to life. The earth pyramids are found in three valleys on the Renon, the Finsterbach between Longomoso and Maria Assunta, in the Katzenbach valley below Soprabolzano and in the Gastererbach valley near Auna di Sotto.
How to reach Renon natural earth pyramids:
First of all by a cable car to Sopra bolzano, then taking the olde-worlde narrow track railway across the Renon high plateau, finally to marvel at the famous obelisks of red earth and rocks at Longomoso, the earth pyramids.
