stone pyramids can be found on mountain passes, close to natural attractions or near the “places of power”. Their meanings are different, and only those who left these pyramids on their way know what they actually mean.
Most often the pyramid is built to make a wish – one for each stone
Mountain climbers, for example, build them on key points of mountain trails and call them “tours”. A common name for pyramids on Iceland and Norway is Trolls. By building a hill of stones, the northerners give life to a small Troll, and bring good luck to their own lives.
But most often the pyramid is built to make a wish – one for each stone. And the higher and stronger it is, the greater is the likelihood that the wish will come true.
