Weekly Photo Challenge: Curves 06-14-2013

Trollstigen Road - Andalsnes, Norway

Trollstigen Road – Andalsnes, Norway

If you like to drive on curves, try the Trollstigen Road in the Rauna Valley region near the town of Andalsnes, Norway. The editors of CarRoute.com compiled a list of the 15 most amazing roads is the world. The Trollstigen Road, which means “Troll Ladder” in English, ranked number nine on the list. As you follow the Rauma River, the mountains rise up dramatically on both sides with Mt. Romsdalshorn at 5,000 feet on one side and the Trolltindane at 5,100 feet on the other. The road winds its way up with eleven hairpin turns, crosses the Sogge Bridge and climbs the mountain with steep 9% gradients to reach the viewpoint at the top.  Even if you are squeamish about heights and winding roads, the magnificent view is worth it.
