Description

The long Eikesdalsvatnet lake lies just 26 metres above sea level, while the surrounding mountains tower to heights of 1,500 to 1,800 metres straight up from the lake. The Mardalsfossen waterfall cascades 297 metres down into the valley and is the fourth highest waterfall in the world (the whole waterfall is 655 m). The waterfall is an impressive sight in the period when the water is released by the hydroelectricity company - from 20th June to 20th August each year. The walk up to the waterfall takes about 45 minutes. Large car park in Mardalen.
