Situated relatively high in the Drivdalen this is a stunningly beautiful area. But it also get pretty harsh weather from Dovre. The main attraction is the Kongsvoll Waterfall (Kongsvollsfossen), a massive ice flow that starts at the walley floor and tops out at the plateau 1270 meters over sea level.

Getting There 

By the E6 highway south of Oppdal.

It offers many possibilities, and can take several parties. A really good outing with great views over Dovre. The big local classic.The whole flow can be climbed, but as days are short, most people bushwack up climbers right of the flow, and start the climbing where the flow steepends. There are good ledges for racking up. "P0"@SEMICOL...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
