About Vestre Kalvehøgde
Go to the top of Valdresflye on highway 51 From here, walk west through Steindalen and rattle up to the saddle between Rasletinden and altitude 2088 m above sea level. One can also choose to go through the top of Rasletind.
The journey towards West Kalvehøgde goes through a number of smaller peaks. On nice days, this is a great ride with the actors in Valdres south and north in Jotunheimen.
Southwest towards Austre Kalvehøgde there is a narrow passage between the cliff edge to the Leirungsbrean and the easternmost of Kalvehøgdbreane, but it is normally not a problem both on skis and on foot. If the snow is hard and icy, it may be perceived a little nasty.
From Valdresflye heading out to the top and back again 7-8 hours.
Vestre Kalvehøgde is the highest you can get in Valdres.
