Trip suggestion: Kjerag
Kjerag or Kiragg is a Norwegian mountain, located in Lysefjorden, in Rogaland. Its highest point is 1110 m above sea level, but its northern drop to Lysefjorden is the main attraction. The drop is 984 m (3,228 ft) and is just next to the famous ''Kjeragbolten', a 5 m³ big stone which is plugged between two rocks. You can reach Kjerag by following the marked trail from Øygardstøl, near Lysebotn.
The hike is taxing but the view is worth it!
Estimated time: 5 hrs return.
