About Sulebu - Kljåen

See trip " Nystøga-Sulebu" for a description of the access from E16 to Sulebu. See trip "Skakadalen-Kljåen" for the return of Kljåen to Vang center. Although the trip is long, it is not tiresome as it goes through easy terrain and southeast. Keep an eye out for reindeer which are common in the area in the summer. On hot days you can often find them on patches of snow and glaciers where the heat and insects are less troublesome. After a little climb east of Øvre Sulevatnet the trail goes in hilly terrain. To the south Høgeloft extends with its 1920 meters, the second highest peak in Southern Norway south of Jotunheimen. Soon you look down on Sulevatnet and Sulemarkidn where they have found 12 hunting grounds of the Stone Age. Ten of these are located along the north side of the water. The oldest is about 8,000 years old and trappers have lived here for thousands of years and harvested the mountain's surplus of game and fish. At Fossegrovstjernet (1475 masl) a steep snowdrift goes straight into the lake. Proceed with caution here. It is an advantage to have good footwear, and perhaps a stick? Just after the lake you pass the municipal/county border. The trail goes steeply down Fossegrovskaret. From here it is mostly downhill, down to Kljådalen, with mountain birch forests and the serviced cabin that the Turistforeningen took over in 1963.
