Hesteggi offers a nice view towards Sogndal

Hesteggi (horse ridge) is a very popular mountain, rising 907m above the city of Sogndal. There is a marked route starting at Tjødnali above Kjørnes and it runs 4km up the forest – to the top of Hesteggi – just above the tree line.

The route from Tjødnali to Hesteggi

This was an absolutely gorgeous afternoon, and we (Anne and I) wanted to pay Hesteggi a visit. Soon after heading out from Tjødnali, Anne decided to see how fast she could walk the 760 vertical meters to the top. Would she make it within the hour? I stayed behind and provided a motivational speech when needed…

On the way to Hesteggi, in a quick pace…

I was very impressed with Anne, who reached the top in 1 hour and 2 minutes. She has every chance of making it up in less than the hour if she puts her heart into it…

Anne went “all in”, and it looks like Karma did too 😉

My personal record from 2015 is 44 minutes sharp, but I was of course running parts of the route. I now got tempted to run it again to see if I can do it better.
