Very early climb, zatrak and we again go on a mountain serpentine on a minibus to the parking lot, from where we will go on foot to Kjerag - the first on our way of the natural sight of Norway. It is a stone stuck between two rocks and hanging at a height of almost a kilometer above the precipice. The road to it takes two or three hours and in the daytime it does not get through the crowds of tourists, so we'll get up early to come there first or one of the first and calmly, without fuss and turn to be photographed and enjoy the place. The most fearless will be able to climb directly to the pea - it's not so scary and dangerous, as many think, but those who do not want to do it, will also have something to do and what to see - around absolutely fantastic in beauty species.

This time we will go slowly, as we will have tents with us and we will not just enjoy the views from the cliff, but we will also meet the sunset and dawn beside it. If there is a good, cloudless weather, you will get fantastic pictures of the beauty. If bad - enjoy the sensations and emotions of the greatness of nature, which can not be felt without being on the cliff and around it.
As the practice of the past years shows, spending the night on a cliff is a very interesting decision, as there are thousands of people here during the day and you feel yourself among them as in the Moscow metro during rush hour.

Go 11 kilometers, and up the hill, along a well-equipped, marked, but sometimes rather steep trail. However, as in the case of Preikestolen, we are not in a hurry, as we plan to spend the night in tents near the rock and enjoy its views, when there will not be a lot of tourists, and also to meet the sunset and dawn.
The Trolltunga is so colorful and unusual that it attracts extreme eccentrics from around the world. As soon as people are not photographed on it, trying not only to capture a beautiful place, but also to stand out among others in this place. Here is a small selection of such & miracle-pictures».
