The kjerag area
The majesty of Lysefjorden.
Kjerag is the majesty of the Lysefjorden - a massif towering 1.000 meters up from the fjord. The smooth face of the Kjerag mountain is on the south side of the Lysefjord, at the very end of the fjord near Lysebotn. The literally vertical face of Kjerag is the result of the retracting ice. As no or little water has rippled down the mountain from the Kjerag-plateau, no eroding has affected the face. The plateau is in the picture to the right. This is the starting point for the basejumpers who throw themselves off the 1.000 meters drop with parachute.
Kjerag can hardly be described - it has to be experienced!
