This is my second trip to Dalsnuten. This time I wasn’t alone. My friend Pearl’s with me. Believe it or not she just got back from the Philippines! She said that she doesn’t want to just sleep the whole day so she asked me to go hiking today. Luckily, we have a nice weather today. 15 degrees Celcius and sunny. Not bad!
Just circa 200-300 meters from the site, you’ll find a teepee made from bamboo like tree.
Inside the teepee.
I don’t have an idea what those hanging things are for but I think that people hang them there. I actually like it because it gives a nice touch to the teepee.
This is one of my favorite views. I could imagine myself bathing here, but first I have to remove the stones. 😛
And finally we reached the top! Good job!
It’s around 9 a.m. when my alarm rang. I could have just slept back again but no my mind won’t allow me too. So I got up, took a shower and ate breakfast. I was thinking of great ways to utilize my day off, wisely. The first thing that went into my mind is the gym. Second is window shopping. Third is do the laundry and last is hiking. I chose the latter even though I knew that no one is available to go with me and that I’ve never been to that place before. I’m a bit concerned when it comes to new places, specially mountains and forests because sometimes (ahem!) I got a wrong sense of direction (Even though there’s a map.). However, I want to be adventurous this time and set aside my worries. So I packed my bag. I packed light because the hike is only 2 hours total so I won’t be needing a bunch of stuff with me.
I took the bus to Dale and got off the stop Gramstad and walked up to the site. It took me around 15-20 minutes to get to the post. It’s impossible to get lost here because there are signs.
And so I followed the sign to Dalsnuten.
Here’s one of the heaven on earth view just a few meters away from the post.
The first “stoney” path.
This is one of my favorite views from the trip. It looks like a scene from Game of Thrones or The Vikings.
As I went further up, the view gets better and better!
I wasn’t alone apparently..
I made it to the top! It’s a great feeling.
Cool monocular. I want one too!
Can see Stavanger from the top.
