Even far down in the denst forest in Ænesdalen valley the precipitous and mighty Gygrastolen watches over you. Ænesdalen is not the easiest route in to Folgefonna, since it does not have good roads. But, the nature is magnificent. And if you first are on a trip through this unique valley, you will see how the vegetation here, as in many other valleys in western Norway, changes with altitude and light conditions.

Arne Handegard raised his hand: “That plant grows on Mt. Jonstein in Jondal”.
