Tyinkrysset - Kyrkjestølen - Maristova
Large parts of the route follow the beautiful lake Otrøvann. The lake is also known as Støgovatnet, and is located 971 m a.s.l.
Between Kyrkjestølen and Maristova, you will cross the actual Filefjell and reach Kongevegen’s highest point.
The stretch across Murkløpphøgda is an exciting walk of some 10 km, with spectacular views of the Hurrungane peaks.
Here you can see what it meant to build a road according to «the French principle». It was as straight a line as possible, with great emphasis on drainage and foundation work, but without any particular consideration for the character of the terrain.
