Description

Muldalsfossen – The Muldal Falls is one of the highest waterfalls in the Kingdom, with its free fall of almost 200 metres. However, since the hydro-electric development at the end of the 1950’s, the volume of water in the falls is considerably reduced.



The walk up to falls, which is situated between the tunnels to Tafjord, is on a good footpath that was made up at the close of the 19th century. The path snakes its way through 13 loops for about 2 kilometres up the steep mountain sides, which are also a nature reserve for the old indigenous forests. The walk should take you about an hour.



The landscape flattens out, and you will see two abandoned farms with large farmhouse and hay barns situated at the edge of the hanging valley of Muldal. To see the falls in a real panorama view, follow the footpath between the farmhouses and down a path on the other side to where you walked up. Here you will find a viewpoint with guardrails, constructed in around 1890.



Muldal is a good starting point for walks into the mountains on well-marked footpaths.
