During the early 1900s this area was used for exclusive hunting trips which were exclusively offered to European Upper-class!

Starting Point: The walk starts at Lyseveien, park at the shepherd’s cabin in Grydalen valley where the path starts.

Description: The start of the route is marked with a sign next to the shepherd's hut in Grydalen. Cross the river and go north up the valley behind the cabin. After about 20 minutes the terrain flattens out, continue along the stream north. Pass a rocky ravine before you begin the gentle climb to Kjeringstøldalen valley. In Kjeringstøldalen valley walk to the north-east, up another ravine. Near the top the terrain flattens out again turn left over a rock, that will take you around the oblong tarn east of Svartetjødn. Continue along the same valley and in the same direction as before, by Mount Salomonsknuten. At the top, under Mount Salomonsknuten there are magnificent views over the Sirdalsheiane.! You should now walk north-east across the plateau. The walking is easy here. After 20 minutes you will begin the moderately steep descent to Grauthedlar.Grauthedlarhytten is superbly located just off Grauthedlarvatnet.
