Mt. Ljomsnuten, at 1,268 m, is the highest peak in the mountains east of Valle.
The first part of the hike is similar to the Mt. Valefjell summit hike. From Mt. Valefjell, you continue to “Varden”, a natural picnic spot on the old mountain farm road to Finndalen. From here, follow the trail south to Mt. Ljomsnuten. This is a high-lying trail with magnificent views all the way; a relatively simple hike, except for a somewhat steeper section a few hundred metres before the top. A large cairn marks the summit of Mt. Ljomsnuten, from where there is a unique panoramic view of the western and eastern hills of Setesdal – as well as large parts of Telemark, including the mountain Gaustatoppen, 100 kilometres away.
