Vøringfossen

Det er ikke helt enkelt å få gode bilder av Vøringfossen uten et helikopter, men et inntrykk av hva vi snakker om kan vi saktens formidle. Vi begynner med inngangen til ‘Måbødalen’ der fossen ‘bor’ –

It’s not easy to get a good picture of ‘Vøringfossen, unless you have a helicopter handy, but at least we may try to convey an impression of this mighty waterfall. We start with the entrance to ‘Måbødalen’, the valley where this waterfall ‘lives’

CIMG1428Fjellveggen innerst i Måbødalen er temmelig bratt. Det er også vanskelig å få et begrep av dimensjonene her inne, men legg merke til menneskene som befinner seg på toppen av klippen –

The cliff face in the bottom of ‘Måbødalen’ is rather steep. And it’s difficult to get a correct impression of the dimensions in the terrain, but please observe the size of the people at the top of the cliff?
CIMG1427Den totale fallhøyden på Vøringfossen er 182 meter hvorav 163 meter er et såkalt ‘fritt fall’. Fra fossehølen går det en sti opp fjellet med 1500 hele trappetrinn . . .

The total fall of ‘Vøringfossen’ is approximately 546 ft of which something like 490 ft is a ‘sheer drop’. From the bottom there is a track hugging the rock face and with 1500 steps
(if you are in good shape  :-)  )
CIMG1420Det er litt vanskelig å oppfatte høyden om du ikke kan lene deg ut over avgrunnen –

It’s a bit hard to take in the real height unless you may lean out over the edge of the cliff.
CIMG1432Men du er selvsagt velkommen til å forsøke! Det minner meg litt om historien om de to unge menn som konkurrerte om å lene seg lengst mulig ut fra en balkong i 15 etasje. Og plutselig vant den ene!

But you are, of course, welcome to try!  It reminds me of the story about two men that were competing who could lean out the most from  balcony on the 15th floor? And suddenly one of them won!
