General facilities

  • Good to know - "Be aware that the mountain drops very steeply to the north. This side often has a big overhanging cornice. Keep a very safe distance, especially during winter and spring. The walk has been graded as ""Expert"" because of the tough climb (0-1848 m.). The path is very good."
  • Map - Turkart Loen-Lodalen, 1:50000
  • Parking - When you pass Tjugen camping on your left handside, continue for 150 metres until you reach a parking place on your right handside. Parking fee.

      I never climbed mountains before, this was also my first long hike. I even had no shoes to do this. So we went a day before to the centre and bought some good shoes. When we started, we know it... Read full review
