Gausta (1,883 m above sea level) / Gaustatoppen / is famous for its magnificent views of the surrounding mountain landscape. In nice weather you can see up to 200km. It is said that 30 percent of Norway's territory can be seen from the top. You can reach the transmitter at the top in about a two-hour walk, or you can be taken in the interior of the mountain by mini-train to a height of about 850 meters above sea level, where you change to a sloping elevator with a rise of 40 degrees and it will take you 1145 meters higher to the top station at 1800 meters. You have to go your own way
