Trolltunga - Troll's Tongue by runear Trolltunga - Troll's Tongue by runear
Location: above Ringedalsvatnet in Skjeggedal, Norway
( near Hardangerfjorden )

Hike facts:
Effort level: Challenging
Duration: 8 hours
Landscape: Mountains

The hike goes through high mountains, takes 8-10 hours in total (to Trolltunga and return) and the ascent is about 900 meters.The hike is usually possible to do from mid June, depending on when the snow melts in the mountains. Normally one can hike to Trolltunga until mid September.

Consider carefully whether you are in good enough shape and have the right equipment before setting out.
Plan carefully and start early in the day. There is no mobilephone coverage along the route.

The path leading to it is awful, especially when it is raining >.<

It was worth every struggling moment! :phew:
The weather was perfect and I packed light so I arrived at Trolltunga just over 4 hours into the hike.
I highly recommend it - the feeling is unreal!
- especially from the very tip of Trolltunga.... :)
