Spectacular views of the whole of western Norway await you at the cairn. Below, to the west, lies Skåldalen, the shieling for Åsen farm. With its many rocky and snow-covered sections, the ascent of Vangsen is not for the faint-hearted. Vangsen, Jostedalen’s highest mountain, is easily accessible in the summer thanks to the Vanndalsvatnet access road. The trail is considered one of Norway’s best summit trails for skiers because of the heavy snowfall that lies for a long time. Vangsen means ploughshare, and when you look at the mountain from the bothy at Mannen, the name makes perfect sense.
Myrhønna, the most distinctive mountain in Jostedalen, is a landmark. For centuries the pyramid-shaped peak, buttressed by the Geisdalsfossen waterfall, has been a popular motif with painters and photographers. From the summit you can see both the Jotunheimen range and the Jostedalsbreen glacier.
A few hundred years ago this path was the main road between Jostedal and Lustrafjorden. Vigdalen was then a part of Dale and this path was the road to church. The path is called Bispevegen (The Bishop's road) after Bishop Johan Nordal Brun, who travelled this path when visiting Jostedalen. The year of passing and the first letters of his name are engraved in the mountain beneath Storhaug.
