Overview
Details

This walk has everything the most experienced hiker could want but requires fine and stable weather if it is to be an enjoyable experience. The walk is long and demanding and unsuitable for children.

Starting Point: Grauthedlar turisthytte

Description:Start walking in a westwards, first 5-10 minutes up a small slope, across a large marsh area, then up a narrow ravine until you come to a signposted intersection. Continue westwards through a narrow crevice before turning left and walking along the edge of the mountain. Walk parallel to the power line for the next few kilometers. Follow the southern side of øvra Ramsdalstjødn tarn. In the western end you will cross the stream and follow the path up. At the next tarnl cross the stream again so that you follow the southern side of the tarn. At the end of the tarn cross another stream and walk diagonally uphill to the west then cross under the power lines you have been walking parallel to and head towards Søra Kamsbrekka. From the top you have great views of the dramatic Kamsdalen valley. Head down the slope and about half way down cross over at a signed intersection. Change direction and start walking south-west up the mountain (1145 metres). Good navigation skills are necessary in the barren landscape. Just below the summit there is a large cairn and where there are great views of the Lyseheiane mountains. Shortly after the cairn the path veers to the left, in a more southerly direction towards the power line and Vaulatjødna tarn. By the power line, start walking south-west down a deep ravine. It is very steep here and you must climb down. In late Spring (May/June) there may even be snow still. Continue along the north side of heimra Vaulatjødn and then to Indra Brudletjødna where you follow the eastern side of the tarn. Some areas along this tarn are steep bare rock faces, which can be challenging in wet weather and after alot of snowmelt. Continue along the south-east side of heimra Brudlitjørna tarn and then head towards Lysedalen valley before veering north-west around a small summit. Cross a small valley before starting the descent Jenafjell. Towards the bottom of the valley you must again cross some steep bare rocks before you come to a regulated tarn on your right tat you walk along. At the end of the tarn you come to a reservoir, from here follow the stream further down the valley. After you have rounded Mount Jenafjell you can walk quickly down to the road at the farm Tangen.
