A hike through the mountains

Sylarna travelogue picture
This time I had two friends with me and we started from Nedalshytta, in Norway, to Sylarna (17 km), Helags (21 km) and Ljungdalen (18 km). When starting from Nedalshytta the first 200 m are straight up. This is may be the toughest part in direction Sylarna, so take it easy, do not hurry. After this there are no huge climbings any more, I would say that it is hilly, more or less the hole way to Ljungdalen. The track has a lot of rocks on it the first one and a half day, after that grass is coming more and more as it goes down to a lower level.

Favourite spots:

When leaving Sylarna go up on Herrklumpen (a little hard) the view is magnificent. Take time to climb up on the Helads glacer, what shall I say, also a great view.

What's really great:

Standing at the Helags glaicer, feel the ice with the hand and try to imagine how long it has taken for the ice to get here.

The image shows the ridge of Helags and a part of the glacier

Sights:

The nature and the animals, take time to enjoy it.

Accommodations:

Sylarnas station can offer more compared to Helags hut, there is a larger offer of groceries and fresh food. A tent is of course possible to use.

Nightlife:

No clubs, use the day room or the kitchen to meat poeple.

View from Helags towards Sylarna.

Hangouts:
No pubs, but in the grocery stores beer and snacks are sold. In the evening most people are sitting in the day room/kitchen and are having a good time.

Restaurants:
No restaurants, self cooking.
