Kjerag, Forsand Municipality
(4.9/5 based on 360 reviews on the web)
Towering above other peaks along the fjord, Kjerag has become a popular destination for hiking, mountain climbing, and base jumping. You can walk up the path following marked trails and traversing several ridges to the plateau or cruise around the fjord and admire the mountain face from a ferry or a sightseeing boat. More adventurous visitors may try climbing the Kjeragbolten, a massive round stone jammed firmly in a mountain crevice. Try to find a spot near the peak where a natural phenomenon triggered by a strong east wind occurs--some locals say you'll hear the sound of a gunshot followed by smoke when the wind blows at a certain intensity. Wear solid hiking shoes and warm clothes, and be sure to take plenty of water and food with you. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Kjerag by using our Forsand Municipality tourist route planner.

  • Not too long route, however, requires effort limits. First, you see the rise of the stone rock. seats nailed down the chain, but underneath the granite and trampled down by sliding, especially in the rain. Height of about 100 meters. Then you see the descent into the Valley and following the mountain twice. The second mountain it is necessary to climb the boulders. Very steep climb and descent to the river which is ... correct-third ascent height. ... three hundred meters correctly. And this rise is the most serious test. Especially in the rain. The already slippery stones wetted with water profusely. Where on your lap, where holding a paunch chain bonus to mount further ventilated winds plateau. Go easier. The main thing is not to get confused. See pointers, especially at the end. To get properly, it is necessary to go from f'orda at the end. Pass the stone along a mountain river, zavalennomu huge boulders. before stone River breaks down 650 metre waterfall. Climb the stone is very simple. Stone shelf almost goes into this cobblestone. But to stand there very uncomfortable. Some long otskrebajut stones below. Insurance and protection for none. I would leave once again, but the wife vehemently opposed. Another test!
