A mountain near my hut
Highest in Fåberg Vestfjell
How to get there:
This mountain lies in Fåberg Vestfjell, west of
the Saksumdalen valley and east of the Dokka river. Route description:
We start from our cabin, the first 3km
of the trip is fairly flat and takes you passed the
lake of Bjørtjern. Then the slope up to the
summit becomes more pronounced. It is an easy hike, the mountain
can be hiked and skied from all possible directions
without difficulty. Comments:
The view from this summit is quite outstanding. On a clear
winter day one can see more than 100 km in all directions except
where Synnfjellet blocks the view. See the panorama pictures below from
December 26. 2004.
The primary factor is defined by the flat meadow
north of Kittelbu, reaching an elevation of 830 meter.
