National Park “Pelister” abounds with various types of relief shapes that are formed through a long and very complex natural processes.

Stone Rivers – Morenas

From periglacijalnite relief that appeared on Pelister, certainly the most remarkable are the so-called stone rivers. This is actually the slope of the terrain filled with crushed material, composed of granite blocks, dolerit, gabbro and quartz schist, piled on each other, without any orientation. They are created by the time in the highest parts of mountain, snow climate ruled by sliding the substrate material  over the base and alternate freezing and thawing. Stone rivers are strongest on the north side above the Red rocks and location “Kopanki.” At certain places on Pelister, stone rivers and long range up to 3km.


In the alpine regions of Pelister, there is another interesting phenomenon. That are stone seas. These striking periglacijal relief forms are generated by the grinding of rock ice surface, which is usually a mild slope, so devastated rocky material remains on the spot of creation. Classic appearance of such a sea of stones can be seen on the northeastern side of the peak Pelister, towards the Peak Steve.


In the high parts of Pelister dominated glaciation fossil relief, and meet lots of other interesting phenomena. It’s are sharp rocky reefs, improperly accrued rocks after widespread mountain crest, plowing blocks, stone rings, grass terraces and other phenomena that enrich the spectrum of natural rarities of Pelister.


The mountain Pelister traces are stored and diluvial mountain glaciation. They are expressed in the form of zirconс and morens. Of the four zircоns, at Pelister, two are filled with water and exist as glacial lakes.
