Beautiful hike. No protection from the elements so prepare for all weather. There is a good rocky scramble but would not want to attempt it in snow or strong wind. Good hiking gear is a must. The trail is well marked and plenty of other hikers.

This trip is a lot more challenging than Besseggen. Two steep climbing areas are quite tough. Need to be prepared for that. Weather must be good.

We absolutely loved the hike, though we were surprised by two pretty steep and scary climbing parts. Although short, it made quite an impression.. but when these parts were over, it was absolutely worth it. The views were breathtaking! Would recommend not taking the loop from the left side first- because of those steep parts.

My favorite hike so far in Norway for sure. Very challenging, though, mainly due to length. I would say all of the elevation gain/loss is quite doable, but we were very tired after passing the big lake and the descent at the end is hard on your knees. Took us 6 hours with 4-5 10 min breaks and many stops for pictures. We were going max 3.5 km/h when walking. I’m not sure how it could take much longer than 7 hours unless you are stopping for hours at a time or got lost.

Super randonnée, ça monte un peu (beaucoup) mais nous somme des amateurs et on la fait en 5h aller et 2h30 pour le retour! Prévoir un pantalon de pluie pour glisser sur la neige! Vraiment top!

This is an amazing hike that is full of breathtaking scenery. Go on a clear day as this type of views you do not want to miss. Hiking poles are a big plus to save your knees a bit. I will definitely do this again.

Fantastic peak experience, with views the entire way. Very difficult elevation gain, but no exposure or truly sketchy parts to the trail. It took experienced mountain hikers from Colorado, USA about 8 hours, but we took many breaks and we're taking our time.

foggy. only view was near Gjendebåten. we took the ferry. on a foggy day it might be best to just start at Gjendebåten and turn around when it gets foggy

I was a bit shocked by just how much snow has already fallen at the higher elevations. Make sure to follow the red "T" markers as the trail was easily hidden by the snow and these are your only makers to show the way. AMAZING views and worth the effort and scrambling for them. I did this hike with a full hikers backpack to spend the night after the climb just past Memrubu...I DO NOT recommend hiking with such a weight. The rock scramble down was sketchy.

Excellent hike with gorgeous views throughout. Highly recommend! Note that the distance may be slightly understated (have seen different estimates) and expect the hike to take close to 7 hrs round trip with only light breaks for experienced hikers if you go all the way to the hut at the summit. Likely longer for more casual hikers given the terrain.

This was an awesome trail with amazing views and I highly recommend it. However, I have some cautions to make your journey more enjoyable. Having spent a lot of time reading about the trail, I was still surprised by the amount of time it took for me and my 17 and 24 year old daughters to complete the hike from Gjendesheim to Memerubu. We are all in decent shape and were well equipped. We all had fairly light backpacks (15-20 pounds) as we were planning to take the boat from Memerubu to Gjende and stay overnight. Based upon my research I had planned on 5-7 hours for the trip. However, even with minimal stops and maybe 15 minutes for lunch and photos at the top, it took us 8 hours even though we were rushing to make the 3:45 ferry to Gjende. We ended up missing the boat and luckily made the 4:45 ferry back to Gjendesheim just in time. To truly take the time to enjoy the views, have a relaxing lunch, take a few side trails and take photos, I think 9 hours would have been ideal. I'm glad we didn't try my original plan to hike the whole distance through to Gjende in one day! By the time we got to Memerubu we were spent. I recommend leaving early in the morning (6:30 am) if you plan to make the boat to Gjende. Also, the trail is fairly mild except for the steep ascent until you get about 1/2 way through. Then the trail has a number of fairly long, strenuous, and a bit nerve racking descents over large boulders. Another reason to build in a bit more time.
