About Gjendetunga

Gjendetunga is marked at the end of Gjende. This is a short hike from Gjendebu. It is not so steep that it would keep you from enjoying the view that just gets better and better towards the top. At the top you have a wonderful view over Gjende, but also over peaks and glaciers. At the top, you have time to calm yourself and just look out over the landscape while the mind settles.

From Gjendebu go over the bridge on the path toward Eidsbugarden. After about 200 meters turn onto the clear, but unmarked path that you follow to the top.
