How to get there

Directions: Drive in direction of Gol. After 9 km from the tourist office turn right at the signpost for Torsetstølane. Turn left at the next crossing and follow the toll road to Torset- stølane, approx. NOK 40 (card and cash). Once you are above the tree line turn right and drive to the end of the road. Follow steep path and stay to the left for Hødnetjedne. The track divides at the head of the lake. Left is the easier but longer. The right is more de- manding but shorter.

Safety

Bring water and some snacks, it a long hike. 

Description

Great hike in beautiful scenery. Here you get a nice view of Hemsedal and the mountains. It is at first an easy hike but has a steep climb to get to the top.

This hike can be combined with a hike over the outlet of the waterfall Hydnefossen or to the Top 20 peak Veslehødn.

Hydnefossen is the highest waterfall in Buskerud and has a vertical drop of 140 m.

There are many great resting places and places for the kids to play around in the area. Remember to take good care of the children at Hydnefossen and Hydnekjaften, it is a very steep area.

Remember that we in Hemsedal have a leash requirement for dogs in the period 1 April to 31 October.
