About Hellerfossen

Mighty mountains and cascading waterfall. From Gjendebu towards Lerivassbu you move from lush and sheltered mountain farm hills through birch forest and up into the tree line. Into Storådalen there is a good trail and it is an easy walk to the bottom of Hellerfossen (waterfall). An alternative return route is via the plateau west of Storådalen to Griseltjønnen and down again in Veslådalen, or down the trail from Gjendetunga to Gjendebu.
