Jotunheim. FLESKEDALS-S^ETRE. 22. Route. 145
b. From Vetti to Tvindehougen and Eidsbugaren.
8-10 hrs. A grand expedition (guide 5'/2 kr.).
Gaard Vetti and the Vettisfos, see p. 144. From Vetti we zigzag
up the Vettisgalder towards the N.E., and in 1/2 hr. reach a plateau
commanding a view of the Utladal to the N., with the Maradalsfos
011 the left. In another Y2 hr. we reach the top of the hill, where
there are a few sickly pines and others overthrown by the wind. To
the right rises the Stelsnaastind. A path descends to the left
through scrub and across the Morkedela to the above-mentioned
platform overlooking the Vettisfos. We then return to the left bank
ofthe Morkedela, ascend its course, and (20 min.) cross it to the —
Vettismorka-Sater (2190 ft.), IV2 hr. from Vetti. To the W.,
at the head of the Stels-Maradal, rises the Riingstind with the
Riingsbrae ; below is the Maradalsfos ; to the right, the Maradals-
naasi. The view of the Horùnger increases in grandeur.
From the upper valley of the Morked0la, on the S. side, rises the
Gjeldedalstind (7100 ft. ; first ascended by Hr. Cari Hall in 1884), and on
the N. side the St0lsnaastind (6790 ft. ; first ascended by Mr. Slingsby in
1875), both of which may be ascended with guide without serious dif-
ficulty. Grand views.
Our route now leads through pines and birches and (y2 hr.)
crosses the Fleskedals-Elv. It then ascends through wood to an open
space where we enjoy a *View of the Skagastelstinder (p. 150) to
the left. We then descend slightly and cross the river again to the
(1/2hr.) four Fleskedals-Seetre, the middle one of which, owned by
Anfind Vetti, affords clean quarters (if open : enquire at Vetti).
Grand view of the Riingsbrae and other Horùnger.
The route to Tvindehougen returns to the left bank of the
Fleskedals-Elv and follows the course of this stream. To the N. we
first observe Friken (p. 146), and afterwards the precipices of the
'Naes' between the Fleskedal and the Uradal. In 3/4 -1 hr. we
recross the river by a bridge. To ttie right rise the Stelsnaastinder
with a large glacier. Farther on we ascend to (IV2 hr.) the defile
of Smaaget, where we have another striking *View of the Horùnger
behind us. To the right rises the Koldedalstind, to the left the
Fleskedalstind. We then descend rapidly towards the Upper Kolde-
dalsvand or Uradalsmulen and follow the whitewashed 'varder' to
the S., along the Koldedela, to the Lower Koldedalsvand. We
cross the Uradals-Elv at the head of this lake, 2 hrs. from Smaaget,
and skirt the E. bank of the lake and river to the upper end of
Lake Tyin. Hence along the N. bank of Lake Tyin to Tyinsholmen
(p. 155), 2 hrs. from the bridge, and to Tvindehougen or Eidsbu¬
garen (p. 157).
