Up to the top of Besseggen, Part 2

Last time I stopped when we arrived at Bessvatnet for a rest. This time the trip go on. Next part is to climb the part of the mountain called Bandet. This is the steepest part of the trip, were it´s not a walk anymore. But, mountain climbing. I find this very fun, have always liked to climb, its like a pussle finding the right way to climb. My mom on the other side didn´t find it that easy.

After this climb it has a little bit more hills, but no more climbing. Except a few hills at the end of the trip.

When we arrived a Veslfjell we found out that everyone that started at the same time as me and my mom now had managed to walk past us and we were all alone. The funny part with Norwegian mountains is that when you first reach the top, you soon find out that it is nothing there. The top of Norwegian mountains is the closest to a desert you can find in Norway. The only thing around is stone and moss, little life of anything.

One of the most famous part of Besseggen is a little bit of the mountain that stick out over the water. You can go out on that one and get a amazing view. A must see, if your not really afraid of hights ofcourse.

The last half on the way home I have to admit was not that fun. I was tired and cold after using 12 hours walking a tour that was suppose to take 8 hours. Not what I was expecting. We came back when the sun went down and gave us a definite end of the day.

I was supprised to see that our bags was lying and waiting for us still at the docks. All alone since everyone else already had collected theirs. We decided to drive home that night, needed a proper bed. But  soon found out that the minibus down to the car had stoped driving.

Thank God the nice shop owner said he was driving down anyway and would drive us down to the car, so we didn´t have to walk all the way down to the car again. Some people is just to good to be through.

It was a amazing trip that really is a good way to see some of the beautiful Norway. Absolutely a must do if you ever visit Norway, I wanr to do it again.
