History


Description

Lud’s Church is not a normal gorge, although it looks like a gorge. Its actually a tectonic valley, which is a tectonic cave which has no roof. Due to a landslide the lower part of a rock unit moved about 1 m to 2 m away from the other pard, which resulted in a straight vertical crack. That's the gorge known as Lud’s Church.
