Glaciokarst features at Reovack greda col, Mt. Orjen

Glaciokarst is a karst landscape that was glaciated during the cold periods of the Pleistocene and displays major landforms of glacial influence. For this reason karstification can be pre- and/or post- Pleistocene; this is not easy to classifiy. Mostly Glaciokarst has not such distinctly karst landforms.

Examples of glaciokarst landscapes are found in the Dinaric Alps especially at Orjen,[citation needed] and in the Alps (e.g. the Kanin Plateau with the Vrtiglavica shaft).[1]
