is an impressive road in the high mountains of Rogaland and Vest Agder -
highest point 932 metres - some of it single carriageway with passing places
- with impressive scenery and weather.
The 27 hair-pin bends and tunnel down to Lysebotn are impressive and can be seen from Øygardsstølen, the cafe-restaurant and viewing point near the top.
You will see thousands of little cairns around the high point - who knows why - but get out and build your own, when you come this way.
Two of the main reasons to travel this road - apart from to experience the road - are the walk to Kjerag and the ferry through Lysefjord, back towards Stavanger
From the E39, take RV45 to Sinnes and Sirdal. Turn left in Sinnes towards Suleskard. Just before Suleskard , turn left onto the Lysebotn road
various places along the way.
