Trollstigen, Geiranger, Norway

Trollstigen is a part of road 63 in Norway from Åndalsnes to the south.  It is about 20 kms long, and it has 11hair-pin bends. The road was opened on the 31st of July 1936 by King Haakon VII after 8 years of building . Originally it was a narrow road where cars could only pass at a few places.




In  winter the road is closed.and even in spring it is closed n the mornings because of frost.

The waterfalls come from high in the mountains. In summer they are not spectacular but in spring they are enormous and powerful.
