Like I said in the article just before, the Gaustatoppen is the highest mountain in Telemark. With 1883 moh, you can see from the top, with nice weather 1/6 of Norway!!!

The summit is done a lot of times each day by a lot of persons, it is around 1h30-2h to go up to the summit. Most of the persons go just until the bit tower you can see on the left. But the highest point is on the right you have to follow the arris. On the top you can enjoy in the DNT cabin some good waffles or a good meal!
On this map you can see the different places you can see from Gaustatoppen.

If you are lazy, you can also go up with the lift. It is amazing there is a lift going up, in the middle of the mountain.
For me the Gaustatoppen looks like the Kilimanjaro of Norway! he is alone, much higher than the other mountains all around, and there is often some snow on it. but it is not a volcano.
So if you have never been on it, you should go and enjoy the view, or during the winter you can enjoy going down by ski! but be careful of the avalanches! wear a beacon!
