Description

The path up along Langfoss was originally the old mountain road from the Eljarvik farm to Langfoss støl (mountain farm), located on the plateau above the waterfall. There is a lot of great stonework along the trail. Earlier gene rations have struggled up and down with livestock and heavy loads of butter and cheese from the mountain farm. The first part of the walk is steep up through the pine forest. Some places, and especially when You get above the timberline, there are wonderful view points. You look down at the Eljarvik farm and beyond the Åkrafjord. To the north You see Mosnes and into the valley that forms the southern end of Folgefonna National Park. The Folgefonna glacier is towering in the background towards the summit at 1638 MASL, which is the highest point in the municipality of Etne
