Easy day hike. To be honest, I'm not even sure I took this exact route, I think my route was more south and west. Anyhow, it's nice and worth it :)

First to Review

There was snow on the part of trail, so you should be aware of it. On the flat hill (near lakes) there's a ton of fjordflies which are getting everywhere — even inside eyes and nostrils, so i recommend to take some facecover
