Comments: Tourist Association route (T) from Bavallen to Hanguren.
The trail is marked during the summer months. However, extensive local knowledge of the area is necessary when travelling in the winter season. The trail to Lønahorgi is long and covers high mountainous terrain where the weather can change suddenly. You must therefore take precautions and carry a map and compass with you at all times.
