Let me put that another way: Is the character seeking this place out on their own, discovering by accident, or being taken (escorted/carried) or forced (driven/chased) there? What’s going on – is there a ceremony that’s going to happen there, or some kind of adventure (a jump-off for gliding, say)? Is this encounter the culmination of the adventure, the beginning, or somewhere in the middle?Is the character a native or an outsider?
See the cloud/smoke around it…in your story, what’s down there? Ocean? More rocks and solid ground? Look into the cracks…is there something inside the stone – hidden caves (like a city, monastery, or monster’s lair)?
Now go write…
