Weekly Photo Challenge: Zigzag #2 08-03-14

For some serious zigzags check out 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 zigzags 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.  While the waterfalls zigzag their way down.

  1. Wow! it’s really amazing! I like the small bridge crossing over the water fall, and your photos are great!

    • Thanks, many people stop at that bridge so the look up at the top half and at the lower half of the waterfall. It is a beautiful place..
