The sailing stones (sliding rocks, moving rocks) are a geological phenomenon where rocks move in long tracks along a smooth valley floor without human or animal intervention.

The force behind their movement is not understood and is the subject of research.Read more about the how and when they move on MFS,with videoclip.
